A Hat for Rachel Pattern
This top-down hat starts with a little i-cord (or not, if you prefer), increasing into a swirly top and continuing for as long as you have yarn and time to knit. Our design was originally made to fit Rachel, a happy addition to our River City Yarns family, when she was one year old. We’ve added in a sizing chart so you can make your version to fit everyone in your family, from preemie babies to grown up adults. Want an electronic version of this pattern? It's available on Ravelry here.
Yarn:We’ve used many fingering weight yarns for this hat.Our favourite is our own, RCY Adam & Eve (superwash merino wool, cashmere & nylon). A 100g/325m skein will make an adult hat; 40g/115m will make a toddler size hat.
Needles:2.5mm double pointed needles as well as a 16" circular, or the size needed to get gauge.
Gauge:36 stitches and 48 rows equal 10cm.
