The Hermaness Hats Knitting Pattern is designed by Gudrun Johnston and knitted in 4ply yarn. The pattern contains instructions for both a beret and a beanie. The hats are knitted bottom up from the ribbing with crown shaping. They are knitted in the round a an lace pattern.
The beanie is 47.5 cm in circumference at the brim and 23 cm tall from brim to crown.
The beret is 48 cm in circumference at the brim and 21.5 cm tall from brim to crown (25.5 cm diameter at maximum point).
The Norie Beanie Hat Knitting Pattern is designed by Gudrun Johnston and knitted in DK yarn. This is a straight forward pattern using 3.75mm circular needles and a Cat’s Paw lace pattern.
The pattern is one size to fit head size 51-56 cm.
You will need 240m of Double Knit yarn, a set of 3.75mm dpns and a 3.75mm 40cm long circular needle.
This is a straightforward hat with a Cable and Lace pattern, knitted in the round in Double Knit yarn. The hat pattern has three baby and two adult sizes. The wristwarmers come in two adult sizes. The small size would also make a great pair of baby legwarmers!
This is a knitting pattern for a simple over-sized beanie knitted flat in a Chevron lace stitch. The pattern is for an average woman’s head. The hat may be knitted in a single colour, but adding some different colour stripes bring out the chevron pattern.
The pattern contains instructions for a DK and a 4ply version.
This hat is knitted in Town End Pure Natural Aran Alpaca yarn. The pattern is sized for a child, small & large adults. The hat is decorated with a simple cable separated by garter stitch and topped by a pompom.
Canterberet is a classic beret with a garter stitch band and then radiating ribbing making up the crown. Amazingly we resisted a pompom on this one and went with a bow instead (knitted on from the last few crown stitches, so no sewing). Easily made into a classic beret ‘stalk’, though, if you don’t fancy a bow.
Tension: 20sts and 40 rows to 10cm over garter stitch on 4mm nds after steaming / wet blocking. We rarely wet block, but for the Canterberet you really do need to, and over a plate to boot to make the proper beret shape. We used a 25.5cm(10″) dinner plate.
Finished size: to fit adult female head, 51 – 58cm (20 – 23″) circumference after blocking.
We’ve knitted this using 70g Town End Pure Natural DK in Pewter with Luxury Alpaca Blends in Rosie. it also works well in Alpaca with Bamboo as this yarn really shows up the stitch detail.
Needles – 3.25mm and 4mm circs / dpns (depending on your personal preference for knitting small diameters in the round) OR the size required to give you the correct tension. Your preferred needle / latch hook for darning ends in.
