Sea Urchin Hat
This quick hat is an inside out project, worked with wrong side facing to maximise the cute puffs that burst from the centre. Worked in a double knit weight yarn on a 5mm hook and with an easily memorised pattern, you’ll have this stylish beanie on your head in no time at all. The beautiful drape comes from the silk/camel blend yarn, but would also work well in alpaca or bamboo blends.
To fit head circumference: 50(56, 64)cm/20(22, 25)in
Finished circumference at brim: 43(51, 60)cm/17(20.5, 24)in
Finished height: 22(24, 27)cm/8.5(9.5, 10.5)in
Choose a size where the brim is smaller than your head
circumference. Height is easily adjusted, see note in the pattern.
