Kina Hat pattern by Truly Myrtle
The wind whips outside the window, catching the leaves and twirling them into russet and copper circles as you rummage into your bag and touch something sublimely soft.
You sigh contentedly as you pull out Kina; the sweet little hat of your dreams. Kina is a perfectly light-weight, squishy hat for the frostiest of days.
With a comfy brim and just the right amount of slouch, Kina is a wonderful way to stay cosy and look fabulous.
Remember, you’re only properly warm when you’ve got a hat on your head!
With sizes to suit the whole family, Kina is a fun knit suitable for experienced knitters and beginners who relish trying new stitches.
Pattern includes charts, written instructions and links to helpful tutorials.
