Plain Needleworks Weekend Hat PROJECT

The Weekend Hat

The Weekend Hat by Hiromi Nagasawa is a great little project for fall and winter! It's a pretty cabled toque that can be worn with the brim turned up like a fisherman cap or turned down to make it slouchy, or knit half a brim for a true beanie.

It's made holding two strands of yarn: we used Sandnes Garn DOUBLE SUNDAY as our base yarn and Drops KID-SILK to fluff things up and give it a bit of dimension. If you can't tolerate mohair you can knit the hat with a single strand of worsted weight yarn like Cascade 220 Superwash.


  • The pattern is one-size and based on our sample it should fit a medium to large size head (23" to 24")
  • To make the hat smaller you can either omit the two ribs at each side, or make it with a fingering weight yarn held with the mohair and 3mm/US2.5 & 3.5mm/US4 needles.
  • Length for short brim: 9” / 23 cm
  • Length for folded brim: 11.5” / 29.5 cm length (8.5” / 21.5 cm length with brim folded up)
