Super cozy and quick to knit, the Windy Shores Hat makes for a wonderful gift knit. The pattern includes the option to make a plain beanie style or a messy bun version. Its wave texture makes it a fun, engaging knit.
Windy Shores was inspired by the cold, windy shores of the Canadian coasts. The hat is comprised of an easy-to-memorize and fun-to-knit texture that represents the waves hitting the shores and splashing cold water on passersby.
The pattern is worked brim up in the round and includes instructions for lengthening the hat for a slouchier style if desired.
The pattern includes one PDF file with both the written and charted instructions, but the instructions are kept separate, so you can print only what you’ll need!
