A gansey inspired hat with simple but very effective knit and purl patterning. The neat brim is worked in garter stitch at a tight gauge with short row shaping so that it’s longer over the ears — a minimalist approach to ear flaps. The crown is softly gathered with rapid decreases and joined with a 3-needle-bind-off worked from the inside. This creates a tidy seam detail more often found on ready to wear.
Newhaven is a tiny fishing village and harbour on Edinburgh’s Firth of Forth coast.
