Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit
  • Purl
  • Work YO's
  • Work left & right leaning decreases - SSK & K2tog
  • Working in the round, magic-loop style.

Pattern Description:

This hat is based on a traditional Shetland lace pattern known as razor shell. It's sharp no matter what style of sock yarn you use; semi-solid, space-dyed, or hand painted. There are two sizes to knit, but four sizes in effect - the hat can be blocked larger or left unblocked and smaller.

It is knit in the round from the brim up to the crown. Both written and charted instructions are included. The pink hat is a large & blocked; the green is large & unblocked, and the navy multi is small & blocked. The stitch pattern is well defined, so the blocking decision is strictly based on your size preferences.


With smaller needle: 27sts = 10cm/4" in stockinette stitch, flat
With larger needle: 23sts = 10cm/4" in stockinette stitch, flat
