Amberjack is a slouchy hat that is great for teens and adults alike. Perfect for those autumn days when it starts to get a bit cooler. The length can be easily adapted, so if you prefer more of a beanie, you can easily subtract repeats or add them for more of a slouch.

Worked in the round, Amberjack contains written directions and charts. This hat pattern features 3 sizes; Small, Medium, & Large. Amberjack includes a hat worksheet, so you know how to measure your head to achieve a perfect fit.

Amberjack is written to be worked on circular needles. When the crown becomes too small to continue, you’ll switch to the magic loop method. However, the pattern notes do contain details should you wish to use double pointed needles throughout instead.


Amberjack is available in English.
