Back to Scholar


Back to Scholar is an easy-to-wear hat, that you can adapt to your own style. Indeed, you will find in the pattern instructions both to knit a fitted hat, or a “slouchy” one. Its combination of texture, using slip stitches, cables and twisted ribs, will be the perfect way to highlight the colours of your favourite yarn. Plus, it will be liked both by men and women… Maybe even make a matching pair! This hat can also be knitted in a variety of yarn and colours, the better to fit it in your wardrobe. For example, you can use a light yarn with a soft halo for an airy look, or a tweed one for a more rustic feel. And if you need more inspiration, you can find projects in several styles on the Ravelry page of the pattern!

Note: the stitch used and the cable instructions are both written and charted.
