Crags and Cusps Hat

A Free Knit Pattern




I have a brand new Knit hat pattern. I was looking for a hat that could be really versatile. I wanted one that could work for male or female and one that would have a lot of stretch and growth with it. The crags and Cusps Hat was my solution. It is a ribbed hat that has tons of stretch and comfort. One of the hats that I made fits both my girls and myself, comfortably.  My youngest is almost six and well my age isn't important other than I'm an adult. Cough cough.  Kids grow so quickly, I really wanted a hat that was going to last through a few growth spurts. 

Could it be one of my patterns without some easy cabling? The cabling is made with Right and Left twist stitches. If you have never worked with those stitches don't worry they are easier than you think, and I think this is a great pattern to practice with. 

Below I have the adult size available for free. If you purchase the PDF version of this pattern I also have a baby size and child size. I have also included a chart to help you out. You Can purchase the PDF from my usual locations.
