With a classic beanie shape and subtle graphic pattern, this hat looks great on any head: male or female, youth or adult. The densely knit fabric makes for a warm and easy fit. If you keep your color change wraps nice and neat, it can be worn reversed to feature the contrast color yarn. The best part – the color combination possibilities are endless.


Fingering weight wool yarn in the following approximate amounts:

  • 140 yards each of Colors A and B


Brooklyn Tweed Loft (100% American Targhee-Columbia wool; 275 yards/50g):

  • 28 stitches & 64 rounds = 4″ in circular garter stitch with Size A needle, before and after blocking

Size A (for Main Fabric): 

  • One 16″ circular needle and one set of DPNs in size needed to obtain gauge
  • Suggested Size: 2½ mm (US 1½)

If using the Magic Loop Method for working Hat in the round, one Size A 32” circular needle can be used and the 16” circular needle and the DPNs omitted
