Downton Hat
Downton Hat

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • For this project, you will need to know how to cast on stitches, knit stitches, purl stitches,k2tog, p2tog, pull yarn through stitches to secure, seam the finished work, and tack the brim in place. This project for an average knitting should take about four hours to complete.

Pattern Description:

I received a wonderful gift from my cousin last year. She gave me this gorgeous, handmade silk and satin flower pin in my favorite color. I was in love, and had to design a project around it. I am also a huge fan of a certain Abbey, and love their period clothing. I decided to mix the two, and, voila! The Downton Hat! Knit in seed stitch with thick, chunky yarn, this hat is finished in no time at all. And its soft, full, bell shaping and rolled rim will make you feel like a Duchess. I have also included instructions for the littlest Ladies in your family.
