A very cosy stranded colourwork hat pattern in three sizes designed to match the Little Orme Mitts and Little Orme Cowl to form The Little Orme Collection. The Cowl and Hat use Edamame for C3 rather than Celadon Heather as given in the original Mitts pattern.

The hat is worked in the round from a striped ribbed brim that folds up and moves into stranded colourwork for the main body of the hat and crown.

Please note: The colourwork part of the pattern is only presented as a chart (in greyscale), it is not written out line by line.
