Designed while I was listening to Moby Dick, you’ll have a whale of a time getting this hat done. And it won’t take nearly as long as the book.
This three-section, bottom-up hat works through two separate stitch patterns before combining them into the decreases at the crown.
The hat is intentionally designed to cover your ears whether your hair is up or down, eliminating the necessity for multiple hats to accommodate your hair. Need even more height? Tack on a couple extra rows on the brim and the body.
