Our knitting patterns may not be resold or used to create products for any other business
Patterns arrive as PDF downloads via email and also saved to customer accounts. By downloading patterns within 2 weeks of purchase, customers consent to waive their right to the 14-day cooling off period and therefore will not be entitled to a refund.

This instant downloadable knitting pattern is a great project for intermediate level knitters or confident beginners who are ready to give circular needles a go. A quick and easy pattern that will help you 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 if you’d like to 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!
