Knitting Pattern-Pillbox with Roll Brim, knit felted hat pattern, ladies, women's, girls, PDF pattern
This is a digital file
This listing is for a PDF handknitting pattern.
I have reworked my Pillbox hat design in a variety of beautiful yarns, and have added girls' sizes.
The ladies' version is super bulky weight, as was in the original pattern, but the girls' version is offered in 2 weights: bulky and super bulky weights. The crocheted rose instructions are also included.
This pattern is perfect for quick-to-knit holiday gifts for family and friends!
The yarns I've used are Cascade Yarns Eco+ and Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Worsted, which come in a wide array of colors. I've also used Plymouth Yarn Alpaca Boucle which has wonderful texture.
The original Pillbox pattern, worked in Bartlettyarns' Fisherman Bulky, is included at the end of the pattern.
If you need to substitute another yarn, DO make sure it is a feltable (non-superwash) wool or wool blend yarn, such as a wool/alpaca blend or wool/mohair blend.
