Inspired by the graceful curves and rich colors of ripe pears, the Bosc Hat's lush texture is created with surprisingly easy stitches in quick-knit, worsted weight yarn.
Basic cable and lace patterns transition smoothly from a ribbed edging to the beautifully shaped crown of this elegant hat. A gently slouched silhouette frames the face with flattering proportions, making this a great-looking project that will fly off your needles with impressive results.
Shaping is built into the design, and the pattern offers options to knitters with both charted and written instructions, as well as a choice of two sizes.
This hat is designed to match the Bosc Scarf, and is also available as part of a special value set: http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/knitting/accessory/bosc-set/77185.
20 sts and 29 rnds = 4"/ 10 cm in stockinette st on size US #7/ 4.5 mm needles (or size to attain gauge)
