Bregdan is worked end to end and grafted to make a headband style hat, making it easy to swatch as you go. Worked at a fairly tight gauge and cabled, the resulting dense fabric will keep your ears warm even on a cold windy day. The open back is nice for those with long hair who want to have their hair up and still be warm, and also looks cute over short hair.
4.5 sts and 6 rows in 1 inch. Gauge is given over a small area because it is easy to measure after working the chart for 10 rows or so.
I started knitting to help me sanely get through the cold Alberta winters, and now I just can't stop! I love to knit and design using beautiful hand dyed yarns and prefer to support independant dyers. I share a blog with 3 designer friends at TAATdesigns.wordpress.com, tweet with them as TAATdesigns, and can be reached for pattern support at Trisha.TAATdesigns@gmail.com. I am Girlymom on Ravelry.
