This product is for a digital download of the pattern only.

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.

Kendal Mint

Kendal’s distinctive slip stitch pattern combines two shades of sumptuous Whitfell DK into a rugged and warm hat.

Perfect for wearing low over your ears as you’re striding the fells.
Worked from the brim to the interestingly shaped crown using a rhythmic stitch pattern, this hat is a delight to knit. The slip stitch pattern creates a thick and cosy fabric, perfect for keeping the cold winter weather at bay.

This hat comes in three generous sizes, and the length is easy to adjust should you wish to make your hat slightly slouchier. Experiment with colour combinations, pairing neutral shades for a more subtle look or bold contrasting colours for a statement hat.
