Harbormaster by Aimee Alexander

Harbormaster is a unisex hat knit in the round from the brim up. Its simple Cracked Rib patterning is easily memorized making it a perfect social project. It can be worn slouchy or beanie-style with the brim folded depending on weather and mood. The tailored decreases give this otherwise casual hat a polished appearance.

Harbormaster is conveniently written for 3 sizes and all measurements are given in US and metric.

For a worsted weight version, check out our Boon Island.

    Harbormaster Hat Pattern

    Posted by Susan Bacon on 17th Jan 2024

    Love this pattern. It is very cold this winter and the males in my family are bald on top and need warmth. I like the pattern design, fit, and warmth. Plus I received the download immediately.

    What a quick knit for a gift! I have made a few up using some beautiful MadTosh TML Triple Twist and it makes such a nice squooshy hat. Well written pattern too.
