The Raleigh Brin hat features a combination of large cables that travel from the rib brim to the top center. It is the perfect hat for all the men in your life as the pattern includes both a child and adult size. Knitted out of one skein of Anzula For Better or Worsted, the hat is a wonderful treat for the knitter to make and the lucky recipient to wear.

If you wish to make a deeper adult size hat, you WILL need two skeins of yarn. If your gauge is tighter than given, you would also need two skeins of yarn for the adult size. As written per gauge, the adult size uses all but approximately eight yards of one skein. Hats shown were made out of one skein of Anzula For Better or Worsted.
