Almond Comfit

Almond Comfit features an unusual construction that has more in common with many shawl patterns than hats.

  • CONSTRUCTION

    Beginning at the centre of the leaf motif at the front, and increasing within this pattern from just a few stitches to the full width from side edge to edge, the hat is worked from front to back. Reverse stockinette I-cord gives a neat, sturdy edge. Only one row of I-cord is worked for every 2 rows of the hat so it pulls in the edge without the need for any more complex shaping such as short rows. Closely worked decreases at the back create a slightly slouchy, gathered effect; the hat is completed by grafting together the few remaining stitches.

    SIZING

    Finished circumference of approx 19[21, 23]" / 48[53, 58]cm. Shown with zero ease.
    Choose a size with some negative ease for a closer, less slouchy, fit.
