The Woodlawn Hat Adult Size
Inspired by a visit to one of the Grand Hotels, The Woodlawn Hat is a sophisticated warm winter hat. Design features include a classy diamond pattern and a hint of a billowing top. The wide hat band is a loose fit with a tighter edging, making this hat extra comfortable. The Woodlawn hat can be worn as a classic toque or as a hat with a tiny slouch to it. Using worsted weight yarn and U.S. size 9 needles, The Woodlawn Hat is an easy knit and a great way to learn to use a cable needle.

Lovely main hat band. I’ve made this four times now in both child and adult sizes and I have found that I like to adjust some of the stitch and row counts to my own liking. For example the rim seems better with a couple of added rows, while the adult hat too seems better with slightly fewer stitches and rows. Perhaps with softer wool it would have turned out more floppy, but with the Aran wool I’ve used the full size hat seemed a little high. Overall the pattern is beautiful and has attracted many positive comments.
