江の島 (Japanese) – name of the island off the shore in Kanagawa prefecture in Japan
This quick yet entertaining beanie hat will suit a child, a man or a woman. The pattern on the hat is formed by working garter stitch and the “ridges” of it decrease progressively in size as you work your way towards the top of the hat. With great texture and minimal finishing this hat is great for gift knitting when you wish to surprise your friends and loved ones.
Instructions provided suggest to knit on smaller needle for brim and then work on larger needle for the rest of the hat. However if you prefer looser fit around your forehead you can work the entire body of the hat on larger needle size.
