Downton Hat



Take a spin back through time with knit hat patterns that were created during another era. This classically designed Downton Hat is based off of a World War I baby hat design. Thankfully for us, this hat pattern provides several different sizes, including one for baby and one for adults. Now no matter what your age, you can have fun donning a vintage design inspired by the 1900s.

Is the top part of the hat supposed to be a square? When I calculate the row gauge, it seems to be a rectangle (56 rows for the Adult 1 size) I am using the Sublime yarn that the model hat was knitted in. My hat measures 4" x 5.6".

I enjoyed watching the video. I printed the pattern first and watched the video so now I know how the pattern goes.

Excellent hat, made it for my grand daughter in size child. She's 1 yr. old, but has a large head. Probably could have made size baby. I added a rose and two leaves on the brim and love it! Thanks so much.

I would love to make this but I get a 404-File not found error message. So sad.

I have downloaded this pattern a few weeks ago. I tried again today and it downloads. You need to have adobe reader in order to see it. So find a free adobe reader program and load it to your computer so you will be able to see it and print.

As with everyone else can't open the pattern. What's the point of putting on a pattern when you cannot access it!!!
