Make a Musselburgh Hat

Over 20,000 of these hats have been made for a reason - join Louise to make your own and find out how different yarn weights can all be used to make the same exact pattern!

It's been a while since Ysolda Teague released her Musselburgh pattern, 4+ years in fact.

Since its release, this double-layered hat has been wildly popular with knitters around the world. Why? Because you can use any yarn weight from light fingering to DK to make it. That's right, pick a yarn, get a needle size that goes with it, and cast on!

Doesn't seem possible right?

The other draw is that it comes in 6 different sizes from baby all the way up to adult XL so you can make it for literally anyone.

You don't even need to swatch ahead of time!

In this class you'll learn:

  • how to knit a hat from the top down
  • center-out cast on
  • increasing for crown #1
  • decreasing for crown #2
  • measuring your gauge while working on the hat

Since this is a double-layered hat, you can play with color and get two different hats in one. We're taken with the idea of using a fingering/sport weight Blossom or a Zauberball for easy color changes or you could colorblock/stripe to your heart's content.
