The Wayfarer Hat PDF Pattern, $5.00


The Wayfarer Hat is a companion piece to the Passport Mitts. An asymmetrical addition to your fall and winter wardrobe, it is fun to knit and stylish to wear.

This hat may be made in either the original fit (green hat above) or a more relaxed fit (top two pictures).

To achieve relaxed fit, increase needle size for body of hat and add at least one extra repeat of rounds 1-6 of body of hat (see pattern notes). If matching gauge, use US Size 3 needles for original fit; use US Size 4 needles for more relaxed fit.

Be sure to allow extra yardage if making the relaxed fit. You should have plenty of yardage if using the recommended yarn, but should take this into account if you are making the X-Large, if you add lots of repeats, or if you are a knitter who normally uses more yarn than recommended.
