My Sheep Herder’s hat is an extra-warm hat that can be worn fashionably back and slouchy. Or pull it down over your ears to provide all the warmth needed when taking hay out to the pasture.

This hat begins with a ribbed brim worked lengthwise; stitches are then picked up from along the top edge and knit up in the round to the crown decreases. The hatband may be seamed or closed with a button. I think the seamed version would be wonderful for men! The pattern offers four sizes from a child’s up to adult large: 15.25-21.75″/38.5-55 cm. Worked in a bulky weight yarn this hat is incredibly quick to knit up, and the ridge and lace pattern makes it cosy without being overly hot.

  1. I love the look of this hat. But I am not sure if I am suppose to pick and knit the from the band on the right side top, or the wrong side top where the SL1 stitches are. Could you let me know. Thanks so much
