Kate Atherley Fender Hat PDF
The Fender Hat by Kate Atherley is great for the men in your life. You know what I mean: they insist they don’t want anything fussy, no bright colors, no fancy patterns, no design flourishes... But those sorts of things are boring to knit! So this is an interesting hat in disguise: it looks like a simple ribbed watch cap, but the irregular ribbing makes for an unexpected texture. And it can be worn with either side out - just decide which side of the ribbing pattern you like the best! Stitch patterns are both charted and written out.
