Circled #1 is the first pattern from the Circled collection.

This Hat features offset arcs. An arc is a section of the circumference, and in this case, the arcs are two-thirds of the circumference. Each arc is offset by one-third of the circumference, and each arc is at equal spacing from each other, all the way from the centre of the crown. What these arcs create is a maze like pattern throughout the Hats, and it’s quite compelling to follow the lines and see where they lead you.

This pattern is designed for 4ply/sock/fingering weight yarn, and changes in sizes are achieved through gauge.

Skills required: Knit & purl sts, short rows, provisional cast-on, grafting
