Christmas 2008, for my older daughter’s teacher, I knitted Myrrhia Resneck’s lovely “Ilaisa’s Wristies”, a fingerless glove pattern that works with many different yarn weights. I had three balls of a nice variegated worsted weight which I wanted to use, and after the wristwarmers were finished, there were almost two full balls left over.

So I whipped up a hat pattern to match: mostly stocking stitch, with the brim done in bell ribbing identical to that on the wristwarmers. This hat was intended to be a beret, but it doesn’t slouch enough for that, so it’s really more of a loose sort of toque.

For more information on Ilaisa’s Wristies, the inspiration for this pattern, Myrrhia Resneck’s knitting website is Myrrhialand, and her Etsy shop is Kapital Designs.


Finished brim circumference is 19.5" unstretched
