Mint and Basil
Two hats in this PDF, each a bit different than the other. In plenty of time for Holiday knitting....The first is a classic cap with a 70s vibe, close fitting, worn low on the forehead and snug over the ears. The second is a modified slouch, not exactly a beret, but with that extra room for a modern shape. This one is worn back on the forehead, maybe off to the side a bit.
Both designs are written in 3 sizes, with directions for adjusting for other weights or yarns. The slouch can also be altered for less or more "slouchiness" - so you can create a beret or a cap if desired.
Both are good patterns for a confident beginner.
These were designed specifically for the Plucky Knitter's new worsted weight wool yarn, Plucky Rustic! It's a lofty wool, in a perfect midweight. A great choice for go-to sweaters and accessories that will get tons of wear. Alternative yarns are suggested, but always check your gauge.
