Pattern Description:

For the Royal Highness in all of us--

Skill Level: Intermediate
Craft: Knitting

This pattern was inspired by Lucy Pevensie, the youngest ?Daughter of Eve? to become a Queen of Narnia in the classic book series The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. The cabled hatband is reminiscent of a wreath, from which the not-too-bulky tam covers the crown.

Made in a bulky-weight yarn, it knits up quickly, and makes a great gift.

I have made this hat in both Bernat Softee Chunky and Bernat Alpaca, and it was lovely in both. The Softee Chunky had a little more stiffness to it, though. The softness of the alpaca is what allowed the drape in the adult hat pictured.

IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE! I knit rather tightly, and if you do not check your gauge, your hatband could be too large. Adjust needle sizes as necessary to achieve gauge.

Gauge:

15.5 stitches and 22 rows = 4 inches in Stockinette on 6.5 mm needles

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • From Toddler through Adult

Materials:

  • 1-2 balls bulky weight yarn
  • 5.0 mm (US 8) double-pointed needles
  • 6.5 mm (US 10 1/2) double-pointed needles
  • cable needle
  • scrap of yarn for marker
  • yarn needle
  • Opt. 6.5 mm circular needle (no longer than 29")
