Flist Hat


Flist is an old Scots word for a shower of snow. With cosy colourwork from brim to crown, the Flist Hat will keep you warm despite the weather! This is a quick knit and perfect for using up leftover balls of yarn. Combine it with the matching cowl to stay warm this winter! There are four sizes so you can get the perfect fit for little heads or big ones!

The pattern is fully written with a chart for the colourwork pattern and also includes a photo tutorial for a super stretchy cast-on called the Estonian Cast-On for the brim of the hat. The pattern has been tech edited and test knitted. There’s a screenshot of the pattern, and a list of the stitches used at the bottom of the photos.
