Broken Rib Hat Knitting Pattern | Purl Foundry

$13.00 GST Inclusive

Designed with stash diving in mind, the broken rib hat pattern works with four different yarn weights, three head sizes and is fully reversible. Also features a fold up brim or you can opt to wear it unfolded for extra slouch.

Great for knitters who want to move on from scarves and dishcloths right through to experienced knitters. The broken rib hat is cast on at the brim and worked up to the crown.

Get creative with your yarn stash and knit up a cozy, versatile beanie with the Broken Rib hat knitting pattern. With instructions for four different yarn weights and three head sizes for each weight, this pattern is perfect for any knitter looking to use up their leftover yarn. The broken rib stitch creates a classic, ribbed look, and the fold-up brim can be worn two ways for added slouch or a more fitted look.

Designed to be worn with up to 5cm of negative ease, this relaxed-fit beanie is slightly slouchy, with a length 2.5cm longer than your natural head height. However, you can easily adjust the length for a more fitted crown if you prefer. This is your hat, after all!
