    I have a question. How do the intervals of k16 p3 work out evenly with 95 stitches?

      Hi – the Northward hat doesn’t have multiples of 16, do you maybe mean the Antler hat? For the 95 stitch size the repeat is k16, p5 around, not 3.

    These are beautiful patterns! And, yes, I DO teach knitting + crocheting! I’ve downloaded both your pattern suggestions and will be putting them on my class offerings calendar this Autumn. Thanks for the perfectly-timed suggestion! :-D

    I’ll never forgive my husband for losing the Antler Hat I knit him. I even knit him hand warmers that I’d added the cable to and he lost those too! I have a great amount of Lion Brand Fisherman’s Wool so I might knit him this…. after I chain it to his winter coat.

    Thak you for another lovely free patterns. I finished a Clayoquot recently and I might try this one too. Your hats are quite addictive.
