Full of gorgeous texture, the Aoraki knitted pattern is for a cosy, stylish hat with a slouchy shape and an optional fluffy pompom for extra cute factor.
Knitted in the round, the garter & cable pattern echoes the soft garter stitch brim, and flows effortlessly into the gently curved crown.
Aoraki is a pattern perfectly suited to experienced knitters and those eager for a challenge and is knitted with a simple method requiring no extra needles.
The pattern includes both written and charted instructions and links to step-by-step photo instructions.
