QUEUE OR FAVORITE ❤ THIS PATTERN ON RAVELRY!

Materials Used:

Cloudborn Fibers Highland DK 100% Fine Highland Wool (164 yds/150 m; 1.8 oz/50 g)- about 1 ½  hanks (or approx. 246 yds/225 m; 2.7 oz/75 g)- Color 18-101 “Plum Heather”

Size H/5 mm crochet hook

Yarn needle (for weaving in ends)

Gauge: 4 DC= 1” and 3 rounds= 1” in DC pattern

Finished Measurements/Sizing: Adult small to medium. Length 10 ½ “, circumference (of ribbed cuff) 17” (unstretched; stretches to snuggly fit a 21” head)

Abbreviations Used (American Terminology):

Ch- chain

Dc- double crochet

Dc2tog- double crochet two stitches together

sp(s)- space(s)

st(s)- stitch(es)

Sl- slip

Sl st- slip stich

Fpdc- front post double crochet

Bpdc- back post double crochet

Beg- begin(ning)

Ea- each

Special Notes:

  • When making dc’s, they are made in the spaces between the established dc’s, up until the ribbing, in which case the ribbing is made with post stitches.
  • The Ch-3 at the beginning of each round counts as a dc and therefore is the first st of each round.
  • If you would like your hat cuff to be a bit looser than my measurements shown above, omit round 14. Working the ribbing (fpdc, bpdc) rounds will still work out as shown, but you will be working with 72 sts instead of 64 sts.
