Edmonton has chilly weather for a good portion of the year, so having a worsted-weight hat on hand is one of the ways to stay toasty and warm for all the outdoor activities Curt, Merlin, and I enjoy.

Hunter is a lovely hat that features eyelet sections separated by moss stitch sections. These textures and lace panels work beautifully to feature this gorgeous yarn from River City Yarns here in Edmonton. Worked in the round, Hunter contains written directions and charts. This hat pattern features 3 sizes. Hunter includes a hat worksheet, so you know how to measure your head to achieve a perfect fit.

Hunter 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.

Curt is seen here wearing the large size and has a 22” (56 cm) circumference head.


Hunter is available in English.
