Pattern Description:

Introducing Tessella. A hat designed with versatility, style, great fit and usability in mind. The band is reversible so you can fold and wear the hat as a beanie. Tessella wears wonderfully all year round.

I'm right now in the process of making my 5th Tessella. I have gifted this hat to loved ones all the way from age 3 to age 83 and they all LOVE IT!

Pattern offers instructions for sizes; small 18", medium, 20" & large 22".

Adjustments can be easily made to allow for a snugger or looser fit or to add more slouch to the hat.

There are two methods for decreasing the hat. "My preferred method" and a second alternate, possibly simpler method. You choose!


20 stitches to 4 inches in ribbing stitch.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Small 18", Medium 20", Large 22" (Note - Hat band has a fairly snug fit. If you desire a looser fit around the ears, make a large.) Pictured Hats: Pink hat is size small and rust hat is size large.


  • 130-150 yards worsted yarn, US size 4 (3.5mm) circular 16", US size 6 (4mm) circular 16" and US size 6 (4mm) DPN

You Will Also Need:

  • Stitch marker, Measuring tape, Darning needle

Suggested yarn:

150 yards of Worsted weight

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

Cascade 220
