Original Pattern: Traveller’s Hat
Mods: Adjusted the gauge, added a row of eyelets after the ribbing, and added length. Details can be found on her project page, here.
What Makes This Awesome: I love it when knitter’s adjust gauge, because if you know you have the perfect yarn but it isn’t the right gauge, it’s worth making adjustments. I love the addition of the eyelets after the ribbing, and that Megan customized the length for a slouchier hat. If you know the style of hat that best suits you, absolutely go ahead and adjust a hat pattern to suit your style- make it shorter if you prefer a beanie style, longer if you prefer a slouchier fit. I love how Megan’s turned out!
