This instant downloadable pattern is the perfect knit to use up some of your super chunky yarn stash and you can create this gorgeously snug hat in no time at all!

With a soft rib at the bottom of the hat, you can use this to fold up to have a closer fit, or fold down to have more of a slouchy beanie style. Add a bobble too if you’d like but it looks just as lovely without.

If you’ve not used circular needles before, they can seem quite daunting, but once you’ve got the hang of them they are so easy to use and will open up a whole new world of knitting patterns for you to get stuck into!

We’ve knit it in a number of combinations so you can see the options available. In the images I’m wearing:

  • Mink Blush, with & without bobble, worn folded over & folded down
  • Emerald with lilac stripe with & without lilac bobble, worn folded over & folded down
  • Damson with Bubble (limited edition available only in our sub box) colour pop – worn folded over


Length: 24cm (18cm folded over) – not including bobble

Circumference: Approx 50-70cm
