Intercoastal is a bulky weight hat pattern with infinite colour possibilities. The simple geometric colourwork pattern is easy to follow and lets the yarn shine, making it perfect for specialty and hand-dyed skeins. Pair a variegated yarn with a solid for a subtle contrast that breaks up the colour changes in the yarn, or use two solids for a more striking look.
From east to west, Intercoastal will keep your head warm all the way from Cape Spear to Port aux Basques through the wildest Newfoundland weather!
Youth [Adult S/M, Adult M/L] to fit 49.5 [54.5, 59] cm/19.5 [21.5, 23.25]” head circumference
48.5 [53.5, 58] cm/19 [21, 22.75]” circumference, 24.5 [25, 25.5] cm/9.75 [9.75, 10]” height
Because of the fabric density created by the colourwork pattern, this hat does not have much stretch and is therefore intended to be worn with only a small amount of negative ease (approximately 1 cm/0.5”). If in between sizes, choose the smaller size.
