This pretty hat features a decorative knotted tie which gives the benefit of an adjustable and perfect fit. Great for gifts! The knitting begins with the tie, worked flat in reverse stockinette stitch so it naturally curls inward. Stitches are decreased and then joined to work in the round for the main body of the hat. An unusual but easy garter stitch cable accentuates one side of the hat, and the body is in garter stitch.
The hat can be made in a slouchy style, if desired, by working more rounds before beginning decreases.
Note: there are matching Somerset Mitts available.
