To our publishers and customers

[June 16, 2019] The site has now stopped selling patterns.

[April 30, 2019] After almost 11 successful years in business, Patternfish will cease selling patterns on 16 June, 2019.

We will continue to make our customers' stashes accessible to them to the end of 30 June, 2019, in order to provide them with time to save their purchased patterns to their personal hard drives.

Thank you all so very much for your enthusiastic support over the years.  It has meant an enormous amount to us.

19 Hunting Season Hat

It’s a fact of life in rural areas that there are certain months of the year you don’t go into the woods without your fluorescent orange hat. Why not knit your family something special for that time of year? This stretchy hat knits up quickly and is fun to wear in any color - any time!

This design is suitable for a knitter who can knit, purl, work decreases and simple cables and can work comfortably in the round on both circular and double pointed needles. The pattern is 2 pages long. The brim pattern is given in both charted and written out forms. As with all my patterns, it has been professionally tech edited and fully test knit to be clear and free of errors.

Sizes Available: S (M, L) to fit head circumference of approximately 20 (22, 24) in/ 51 (56, 61) cm. Shown in size L.

Finished Measurements: Circumference: 18 (20 1/4, 22 1/2) in/ 45.5 (51.5, 57) cm.
Brim to crown: 7 (8, 9) in/ 17.5 (20.5, 23) cm.

Gauge:22 st and 26 rnds / 4in/ 10cm in unstretched k1, p1 ribbing (approx 18 sts and 29 rnds/ 4 inches in stockinette).
