This hat was inspired by a custom order I got in. It was supposed to be something inspired by medieval hats, but workable in every day modern life. I came up with this and it was a hit. There are two versions for this hat. The first is the original, whimsical, alchemists/wizard style, pointy version, as in the pictures. There is also a more sophisticated, rounded, slouchy version, that not even your most hardcore hipster would mind being seen in.. So if you don't like the point, you don't have to have it. From beard to bard, this hat works! Super easy and fast knit. The cabled brim gives wonderful texture and the buttons and button tabs add visual interest to an otherwise very simple hat. (also: This alchemist/wizard inspired hat comes in handy when you have a run-in with an ork...)

My username is goddessofwhimsy on Raverly and my website is I am a freelance designer for many years now. I have designed for Plymouth yarns, Koigu, The Alpaca yarn company, Darn Good Yarn and many more. My designs have been published in Vogue knitting. At the moment I am looking for a company to take me on as their in house designer. I would love to be part of a team. I still do freelance designing and even custom knitting through my newly established designing firm Slipknot designs. I no longer sell the rights to any of my designs. I have been taught to knit when I was 5 or six, by my Grandmother in Bavaria, where I was born and raised. I have knitted and crochet on and off throughout the years. At 24 I came to the States, met the most wonderful of all husbands and needed something to do when the kids would take naps and my husband was at work. I also lived right across the street from a shop that sold yarn and needles and other crafty things. One afternoon I went and got myself some cotton and a crochet hook and the rest is history! I want to give a thanks to my husband at this point, who has put up with my antics over the years and has been encouraging me and believing in me always! Thank you baby! I love you! And to my children: I think you are the most amazing little monkeys around and I would not want to be without any of you ever again!
