High Line

This very stylish hat can be either a beanie, suitable for everyone, or a chic beret!

The pattern has been kindly donated to p/hop by talented designer Janet Cullen and has been available on Ravelry for a while but is now available through our site too.

Here’s what Janet told us when she sent the pattern:
“Hello, my name is Janet.  I have six children aged 4-16 years.  As you can imagine things can be a little crazy at home – taking a time out with my knitting helps keep me sane.  Over the last year I’ve done a lot of testing and editing of patterns for another designer, one of which was a jacket I made for myself.  As it is a little cool here I wanted a hat to wear with it, but could not find a pattern to match, so I decided to make one up myself.  The name ‘High Line’ was inspired by an article I had just read about New York’s High Line Garden.  I hope one day to be able to visit it.”
You can read all about the High Line which inspired Janet, here.

The hat is worked from the brim up, seamlessly.  The knit lines on the main body of the hat flow from the brim ribbing up to the crown where they finish at a point.  The hat is unisex and suitable for everyone from babies to adults!

The perfect yarn would be wool or a wool blend in a worsted/aran weight.
