Hahnel Hat Knitting Pattern


1 PDF knitting pattern. 

A DK weight hat using a main color with highly contrasted stripes. I have used DK for the main color and fingering minis held double for my stripes. You could alternately use DK for the stripes OR a fingering held together with mohair for a little fuzz. Happy knitting!

This hat was named after the amazing dyer behind Spun Right Round yards. I am a huge fan of Renee’s colors, definitely desert island yarn…XO
