For our entire knitting careers, we've been pursuing the “perfect hat” – and while our standards have gotten higher as our skills have increased, we've finally made it. This is our personal perfect vanilla hat (that is, a basic, plain pattern), complete with all the little details. We use a combination of a specific cast-on, needle combination, and ratio of stitches between the ribbing and the hat to make an incredibly stretchy high-memory brim. On top of that (literally!) we follow a specific decrease rhythm for a well-shaped crown, and alter the needles and rhythm at the very end for a dense, fully closed top. This hat is also available as a (free!) pattern & tutorial on our blog, but for those of you who cannot or don't want to knit it, you can still get your very own piece of hearthside comfort <3
This hat, at standard sizing, has a highly flexible brim (20 to 28 inches in circumference) and fits snug against the crown of the head. It's available either in a traditionally-spun wool blend yarn (pictured in Forest Green) or a boucle acrylic (pictured in Cream), in a wide variety of colors. Please feel free to contact us if you'd like more customized yarn, fiber, color, or fit options!

This item is Made to Order - when you place the order, we purchase the yarn if we don't already have it in stock, and then knit it from scratch just for you. This can be a lengthy process - depending on the size of your order and our current order volume, it may be between four and six weeks before you receive your item(s). If you need your knit on a tighter deadline, please contact us; we'll consider rush orders, although we may charge an extra fee.
