Pattern Description:

Another variation has been added to the existing Cocoon pattern (as of January 2014): It has a tubular cast on and much more pronounced decreases - a kind of a pointy/hipster version of the original Cocoon hat.
Two sizes (S&L) available for both versions.

So.... I had this hat I bought years ago. Although it was made out of cheap acrylic yarn it always has been my favorite.
Even after I started knitting and had made so many hats myself (and out of much nobler material) I always fell back to this store- bought, ratty, old hat because I just loved it's fit and style.
But after all this time and wear it finally gave up this winter and I just had to make one exactly like it, to replace my all time favorite hat!

With the help of the gorgeous Cocoon yarn from Rowan I made the impossible possible! I made an even better hat than my old one was since now I don't only love it's fit and style but also the softness and warmth of a fine merino & mohair blend!


17 stitches and 28 rows = 4 inches in Stocking Stitch

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • The pattern is written in two sizes (S&L). Since the fit is quite slouchy and the whole hat is made out of single rib or broken rib stitch it should accommodate different heads easily.

About the designer

I am quite taken by any combination of stripes and I love it when colour seems to give a whole new and unexpected shape to a project.
And I like to think out of the box when creating a new design. ...
