Rhinebeck Hat


My Rhinebeck Hat is sideways knit with short row colourwork. The panels are super quick to knit, and the pattern is easily adjusted for gauge, and working fewer or more panels helps you accommodate many more sizes.


Hat Description

The Rhinebeck Hat features leaves of short row colourwork that are separated by narrow stripes of a contrasting colour. The leaves travel up the length of the Hat, alternating all the way around. The Hat is worked sideways in garter stitch and short rows create both the colourwork pattern and the shaping.

Pattern Notes

Fit is determined by row gauge – if your gauge differs, simply work more or fewer panels to achieve the desired size. Alternatively, adjust your gauge with a different needle size.
