Kallen is an Irish name that means “slim”. Kallen has slim little baby cables that run up from the brim of this hat, striking in the Silver Birch colorway from Yarn Vibes, a company that produces 100% Irish wool.
Worked in the round, Kallen contains written directions and charts. This hat pattern is written for one size, that comfortably fits a head that’s 20-22” in circumference.
Kallen 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 instead.
This hat is modeled here by my better half Curt, who has a 22” (56 cm) circumference head.
• US7 (4.5 mm) 16” (41 cm) circular needle, or size required to obtain gauge
• US8 (5 mm) 16” (41 cm) circular needle, or size required to obtain gauge
• Four US8 (5 mm) double pointed needles (DPNs), or size required to obtain gauge (These are optional if you prefer not to work the crown with magic loop.)
• Tapestry needle
• Stitch marker
• Cable needle
• 106-115 yd (97-105 m) worsted weight yarn
