Purls & Prayers
PDF knitting pattern download
The hat includes instructions for both Fingering and DK yarn and has been tested for both. It is knitted in the round and has a mock cable effect created by twisting 2 stitches as you are knitting (swapping the order you work them). All stitches are explained in the pattern.
Sizes: One size, although instructions for adapting are given in the pattern. It is on the to-do list to re-write the pattern to include more sizes. But for now, since the pattern includes instructions for DK and fingering weight versions, it would be possible to cast on the fingering weight stitch number in DK for a larger hat, or the DK weight number in fingering weight for a smaller hat.
