Raleigh Brin Hat Knitting Pattern

SO excited to release this new design today!!! Please meet the Raleigh Brin Hat knitting pattern. The pattern is available to purchase for just $2.99 in Ravelry, Craftsy, and the Brownie Knits Etsy shop.



The Raleigh Brin hat features a combination of large cables that travel from the rib brim to the top center. It is the perfect hat for all the men in your life as the pattern includes both a child and adult size. Knitted out of one skein of Anzula For Better or Worsted, the hat is a wonderful treat for the knitter to make and the lucky recipient to wear.



Yardage: 180 yards/164.5 meters for child size; 200 yards/183 meters for adult size of worsted weight yarn 

Samples knit out of Anzula For Better or Worsted in Elephant and Mariana (200 yards/183 meters; 80% merino, 10% cashmere, 10% nylon) 


If you wish to make a deeper adult size hat, you WILL need two skeins of yarn. If your gauge is tighter than given, you will also need two skeins of yarn for the adult size. As written per gauge, the adult size uses all but approximately eight yards of one skein. Hats shown were made out of one skein. 


US 5 (3.75mm) 16-inch circulars or two sizes smaller than needle used to get gauge 
US 7 (4.5mm) 16-inch circulars or size needed to get gauge 
US 7 (4.5mm) DPNs for decreases or size needed to get gauge 

Note: If you prefer the Magic Loop method, a 32- or 40- inch circular is needed in both the US 5 (3.75mm) and US 7 (4.5mm), or sizes needed to get gauge. 


Child (Adult) 
Circumference to fit: 17 – 20 (21 – 24) inches
