This hat was made using a pattern by Kristine Byrnes and the pattern I found on the Seamen’s Church Institute website.
I was not knitting at this stage for the seamen but for my son who does a fair bit of cycling and lives in Canberra where the weather can be very cold. I thought this hat would be good for him. The headband is knitted side to side and provides a double layer to keep the ears warm. I have knitted two as the pattern is very easy and produces an excellent finished product.
