Knitted from the top of the crown down, Ginger is a 1920s-inspired cloche with an asymmetrical brim, knitted with worsted weight yarn at a tighter-than-recommended gauge for a firm fabric that will keep its shape without the extra step of felting. Choose a contrast brim color for an extra pop of color!
Choose a size that is as close to your actual head circumference as possible. Unlike many hats, Ginger works best with
a small amount of positive ease. Shown in Adult Large on a 22.5-inch head and Adult Small on a 21-inch head.
21 sts and 28 rows equal 4 inches in stockinette stitch with larger needle

I grew up in a crafty household. My mom sews, weaves, and dabbles in lots of other fiber arts, while my dad is a musician (timpani) and photographer (portraits). I got my first camera and my first loom when I was five!
I didn't start knitting until my mid-twenties, but I've done my best to make up for lost time.
