The Stockholm Hat
This pattern is in English.
The Stockholm Hat is a thick and warm hat inspired by Stockholm fashion. The hat is worked in 2 strands of thin wool held together with 1 strand of silk mohair, from the bottom up, all in rib. To achieve a neat and close rib, the size is adjusted by sewing an elastic thread along the inside circumference of the hat. This ensures a good and consistent fit.
The hat is designed to be worn with a little extra baggy fabric at the top – it doesn’t have a tightly fit crown.
