  • Pattern for hats in six sizes, ranging from kid‘s to men‘s size, without earflaps.
  • Instruction for decently sized ear flaps for all sizes.
  • Useful tipps how to make a lining from upcycled T-shirts.
  • Step-by-step instruction with pictures for piping, 3-needle bind-off and other more elaborate techniques you will need.


Pipe bands and a rolled hem, knitting in different directions and great tweed yarn – that‘s the hat „Dante“! The colour range of the original yarn gives you the possibility to create colourful kids hats and more subtle adult hats alike. Well, my hubby likes colours a lot, as you can see – the red and blue combination was his choice ;-)

The hat is partly knitted flat, partly in the round.
