A lone skein of Delft Chickadee and falling temperatures. Oh, and idle hands. Toying with a triple increase to go with mirrored decreases resulted in this little acorn pattern. The pattern is one size, but very stretchy. If a deeper hat is desired, a second skein should be on hand. (The orange hat used about 230 yards of yarn, with one more repeat) BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY combine knit & purl, mirrored decrease, yo. GAUGE 5.5 stitches = 1 inch in stockinette stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS stretchy 21 inches around & 7 1/2 inches high

Recommended with this pattern

  • 180 yards of sportweight yarn
