The Galahad Hat was inspired by the legend of King Arthur, and was named for one of the knights of the Round Table. The grid-like stitch pattern is a modern interpretation of chain mail, geometric and masculine in design.
Knit from brim to crown, Galahad’s stitch pattern is created by a 10-round repeat of knits and purls. The grid pattern shrinks in scale as you work the crown decreases. Asymmetrical ribbing at the brim suits the grid pattern nicely.
The pattern is written for three different sizes. Fit can be customized by adding or subtracting squares of the grid pattern either horizontally or vertically.
