Warm Among the Wheat

Warm Among the Wheat - a hat design by La Visch Designs

This fresh take on a simple beanie is worked from brim to crown, with twisted ribbing throughout. After the brim with the twisted rib cable patterning is worked, the body of the hat is worked to the desired height. Next, the crown is finished with neat double decreases. What is not to like?!

This pattern contains instructions for 5 sizes, ranging from a finished size of 24 cm up to 43 cm (9.5 to 17 inches) unstretched. Don’t let this fool you, though. The twisted rib patterning is extremely stretchy (stretching up to 75 cm or 29.5 inches in the largest size), making this hat very flexible in sizing. In addition, the instructions for the patterning are provided both charted and written out.
