Swedish North Halland Cap

Intermediate. This wonderful cap is an original design by my friend John Crane, who was inspired by my North Halland Sweater workshop. He says this pattern is “in honor of Beth Brown-Reinsel for bringing historical knitted garments to life for our generation of knitters.” He is so kind!

The hat is knitted in the round, beginning with the band, which features the stranded North Halland motif and a lining which hides the stranding! The crown is then worked, and the visor is picked up from the band. A plastic piece can be inserted into the visor to stiffen it.
