It was over a year ago now that I designed the Girdwood Mittens. At the time I started working on the design of the matching hat. Writing a pattern for multiple sizes in varying yarns, though, got the best of me. Even though I knit this hat five different times, I never was able to pull the pattern together. UNTIL NOW.
When you buy this pattern, you are literally* getting six hat patterns, because depending on your yarn and your gauge, the hat will fit your newborn, your toddler, your teenager, and even your husband with that abnormally large head of his. Maggie is shown wearing the Small Kid size (and actually, Jerry’s wearing the same one, but it is definitely too small on him). Below you’ll see Mallory in the Small Adult size.
*literally: please pronounce it like Chris Traeger
The hat Mallory is wearing was knit all those many months ago when I released the mitten pattern. It is one of my favorite hats to wear.
Since there are many sizes of the hat included in the pattern, you’ll need to consult the chart above (click for big) to determine which yarn to use. Needle sizes are suggested, but the most important thing is to get the correct gauge. Which I didn’t need to tell you because you’re so smart. The size chart also appears in the pattern.
