The original swatchless hat pattern: a double-layered beanie with 4-point crown shaping. The multi-gauge pattern now includes 9 gauges, for yarn weights between light fingering and DK, and 6 sizes.
Need something simple to keep your hands busy during zoom meetings? Looking for a gift that everyone will appreciate? Want to cast on right away without any prep? Cast on today, no swatching required, and discover for yourself why so many knitters have fallen in love with Musselburgh.
In what is essentially a three-step project you’ll start with a center-out cast-on and increase for the first crown; the next part is a beautifully meditative knit (perfect for those zoom calls!) of stockinette in the round; finally, you will finish off the hat by mirroring the initial shaping with decreases. This simple canvas is perfect for exploring your creativity through yarn choice, stripes or color blocking. The hat is fully reversible, so working each half in a different color or stripe sequence can turn it into two completely different hats in one.
Adventurous beginner looking to grow your skills? Use the pattern to learn how to knit a hat from the top-down: clear directions and linked tutorials are included.
Heavy laceweight to DK weight yarn.
Exact yardage will depend on size, gauge and yarn used.
Dpns or circulars for your preferred method of working small circumferences in the round
16” / 40cm circular (for sizes above baby)
Choose a size based on your knowledge of your personal tension and the recommended needle size for your yarn. If using sock yarn use a needle a couple of sizes larger than you would use for socks.
Pattern includes directions for gauges of 9, 8.5, 8, 7.5, 7, 6.5, 6, 5.5 and 5 stitches per inch / 2.5cm
Directions are given for measuring the gauge while working the hat, but if you prefer to swatch do so in the round
