This pattern is a digital download.The Montane Hat is a great project for gift-giving for the holidays, whether for a loved one, or knitting for yourself. The hat can be worn close to the head like a watchman's style cap, or a little higher up for a slouchier look. This pattern is sized Baby through Adult, and uses only a single skein of our worsted weight Highland yarn for all sizes. Check the finished measurements against the wearer, especially if knitting for a child, to determine which size might fit best.
