The Design

"Simply couture."

With the subtlest of details and simplest of shapes, the Minimalist Hat—a free pattern—is all about the way you feel when you wear it. Its clean lines (no visible edging treatment, no cuff, and nearly no visible shaping) are perfect for stunning yarns that produce beautifully soft fabric. It just feels good.

Catherine Lowe’s 100% extrafine, superior Merino 3 creates a Minimalist Hat that overflows with grace and integrity. This yarn’s extremely stable stitch structure and stunning stitch definition comes from the single, thread-like strands of merino which are wound parallel, not twisted. A Minimalist Hat in Merino 3 will retain its shape and appearance through countless wears and washes!

The Details

FINISHED SIZE
Approx. 19"/48cm around (fits 20–23"/51–58cm head); approx. 11"/28cm deep for medium slouch.

YARN
1 skein Catherine Lowe Merino 3 (400 yds/365m).
Or approx. 300 yds/275m of a similar light fingering or lace-weight yarn.

Sample shown in color Citrine.

NEEDLES & NOTIONS
US 1½ (2.5mm) 16"/40cm circular needle and set of 5 double-points, or size to obtain gauge.
US 0 (2mm) 16"/40cm circular needle, or two sizes smaller than gauge needle, for cast-on and edging.

Blunt darning needle to finish.

GAUGE
Approx. 36 sts/44 rounds = 4"/10cm in stockinette stitch (knit every round).

KNITTER'S NOTE
We suggest keeping a mending tool within arms reach as you knit. It'll make a dropped stitch or strand much easier to catch and repair!
