New Pattern Available: Michael


It’s cold in St. Paul in November - really cold. You’ll wish you’d brought your hat kind of cold. Lucky for you, someone who knits loves you. This masculine, reversible, bottom up hat offers “roll it up and stuff it in your pocket just in case” flexibility for the traveling businessman. Oh, and it’s warm.

Needles: Size 5 (3.75mm) 16” circular needles and a set of double pointed needles (DPNs) in the same size.

Notes: Hat is knit in the round, rim/bottom up. Pattern instructions are written and charted.
