Warm DK yarn and cleverly shaped earflaps make Cornice the ideal choice for cold weather. Add a pompom and enjoy classic ski Hat styling with a fresh colour twist.

Despite the elegant architectural design, Cornice uses only knit and purl stitches, plus simple increases and decreases. Written in five sizes, with tutorials for the cable cast-on and knitting in the round, it’s an accessible and rewarding knit.

Available either as a single pattern or as part of the Painted Woolly Toppers collection.
