This slouchy style hat suits man or woman, boy or girl; fold up the ribbed brim for more of a beanie fit.  It is worked from brim to crown with Fair Isle stranded colorwork in the body that extends into the crown shaping.   The design features diamonds and triangles in a stitch pattern also featured in the Brochan (for children) and Brecken (for adults) Sweaters.  Modeled in Adult, both in a 2-color and 3-color version, and in Child with the Eliot Zip-Up (sweater pattern sold separately). This pattern is recommended for intermediate level knitters with some prior colorwork experience.

Purchase of this pattern will provide two separate downloads.  The latest version is in the Kate Oates pattern line format and features a larger chart along with metric conversions and new pictures showing the 2-color version.  The previous version is in the Tot Toppers format and can be printed on one page back and front. All instructions are the same substantively.
