Product details

With two charts
Knit in a tightly spun traditional 5-ply Guernsey yarn, this all-weather cap is handsome on men and women alike. The eight-part decrease rounds create a flat circular top, while a firm gauge keeps the gansey-textured crown band standing at attention for pillbox styling. Or you can pull it down low over your ears like a beanie when the wind comes up!

Medium adult: Approx. 22"/56cm around. Note: This hat is designed to fit with little or no stretching so that the sides stand straight. If you wish to increase the size a little, you can fine tune the fit with blocking. For a smaller hat, you can work to a slightly tighter gauge on a smaller needle and block to fit.

1 skein Frangipani 5-Ply Guernsey; shown on him with Chart I in Color Dark Navy; shown on her with Chart II in Color Aran.
Or approx. 200 yds/183m of an equivalent 5-ply Guernsey yarn.
Or approx. 400 yds/366m of a light fingering-weight sock yarn held double.
