Part of the Mint Collection, a collection of three cosy and beautiful hats by Anna Elliott, worked in the soft and snuggly Whitfell DK (100% baby alpaca) from Eden Cottage Yarns. Inspired by various mints, each one has its own unique style and features. To buy all three patterns together go to the Mint Collection listing.

Although this pattern was written for Whitfell DK, it would be just as good in Milburn DK and many other of our DK yarns.



Cosy Whitfell DK at its finest. This quick to knit cabled hat has delightful mini cables give this hat the delicacy of the mint leaves it is named after, making it warming but not too chunky.

Worked from the brim to the crown, the stitch pattern is easy to remember and great for those who love to cable with or without a cable needle.

Available in three sizes, the length is easy to adjust meaning you can make yours fitted, as shown, or slightly slouchier if that is your preferred style. Add a contrasting bobble to complete the look.
