This ‘Fisherman’s rib hat’ was knitted with Moda Vera 8 ply 100% wool, left over from the 3-colour ‘sideway jumper’. It’s a free pattern on the back of the ball band.
It was surprising easy and quick to knit. It uses 2 balls of 50g yarn (approx. 95m). The fisherman’s rib pattern is made up of a purl stitch and a knit one below stitch. I did have some trouble with sewing up (using mattress stitch) – the 2 sides become misaligned as they are sewn up. Does anyone have any tips on this?
The pattern goes from 6 months, 2 – 4 years, 6 – 8 years, to adult size. If anyone is interested, I am happy to share.
