The casual Hat Pebbles can be knitted in two different ways: tightly fitting with a smooth crown as a beanie or as a slouch variant with a softly gathered crown for a more loose fit. It is reminiscent of the English pebble beaches and is knitted seamlessly bottom up and in the round. Both styles feature shaping incorporated into the stitch pattern for a sophisticated finish.
Pattern is knit in the round from the bottom up, and includes 3 sizes.
