Colborne Hat Knitting Pattern (PDF) by Phibersmith Designs


This hat features a double-thick brim for extra cozy ears and enough slouch to adorably mask even the most ferocious bedhead. Couple that with a simple, sophisticated lace pattern, and a gauge that knits up quick in a silky mohair blend, this might be the most thoughtful hat you’ll ever meet. No wonder it was born in Canada.

Sizes: Small / medium / large to fit head circumference 20" (51 cm) / 21" (53.5 cm) / 22" (56 cm)

Pattern includes complete written instructions, as well as charts for Openwork Rib pattern and crown decreases in each size.
