Pattern Description:

Wylam is a ribbed beanie with a difference by Katya Frankel.

This hat resulted from my self-imposed challenge to design a "different" ribbed beanie. I loved playing with the twisted stitch ribbing to make it integrate neatly into both the brim and the crown shaping of the hat. As a bonus, the pattern is written for both worsted- and bulky-weight yarns.

Finished circumference in worsted: 16 (171/2, 19, 201/4, 213/4) in / 40.5 (44.5, 48.5, 51.5, 55) cm. Shown in size 16 in Cedar.
Finished circumference in bulky: 16 (173/4, 191/2, 211/4) in / 40.5 (45, 49.5, 54) cm. Shown in size 173/4 in Brick. The hat is intended to fit with about 2-3 in / 5-7.5cm of negative ease.

MATERIALS AND NOTIONS WORSTED-WEIGHT VERSION 1 skein of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted (100% superwash merino wool; 225yds/206m per 114g skein); Cedar.
