Mattock Hat – PDF Knitting Pattern


*Please Note: This is a digital PDF knitting pattern, not a finished product.

Mattock is a casual hat with great linear texture inspired by the rolling farmlands and vineyards surrounding New York’s Finger Lakes region. Designed as the perfect partner for the Mattock Cowl, featuring the same deceptively simple repeat of ribbing and seed stitch with a hearty garter stitch brim, the Mattock hat is a fun knit that’s satisfying to make and stylish to wear.

16″ circular needles: US 7 [4.5mm] and US 5 [3.75mm] or size needed to obtain gauge and two sizes smaller
