Florence - a staple handknit hat

Fresh, structural, and sophisticated, Florence is ideal for mild winters and transitional seasons, or even wearing inside.

The Florence hat is completely gender-neutral and sized for babies, children, and adults. Hats should keep their shape over time, so Florence calls for a springy sport-weight yarn. The details of the stitch pattern are crisp, and a tubular cast-on is used to create a polished edge that keeps its shape.


Florence is worked from the bottom up in the round.
