This hat is named for the hedgerow bounty we would bring home from our weekend excursions. My Mom would cook the berries into a delicious jam that could sparkle just as red as the raspberries beckoning between the green leaves, or be dark and jewel toned when there were more blackberries in the mix. Designed to match the Hedgerow Jam cowl (also available on Craftsy), it uses the same design elements but uses different techniques. Worked in stranded color, the hat becomes nice and dense and is sure to keep your head toasty. Slouchy version is shown in the pictures BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit purl increases: m1, knit you knit into one stitch, working in the round working with 2 colors, stranded technique GAUGE Gauge: 20 sts = 4" on US #7 (4 1/2 mm) needles over stockinette 20 sts = 4" on US #9 (5 1/2 mm) needles over 2-color ribbing SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Finished Sizes: Women's Medium (to fit a 21"/53 cm head) Fitted (Slouchy): 20"/51 cm (22"/56 cm) unstretched circumference Crown height (both styles): approx. 8"/20 cm SUGGESTED YARN 180 yards of Worsted weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Malabrigo 'Rios' COLORWAY 'Lettuce' and 'Jupiter'
