Burnaby is a classic stocking cap with patterning to show off your skills and a style that appeals to both men and women. It is worked in the round from the bottom up. The twisted rib band can be short or long depending on the overall hat length you want. The cable and tree motif is worked from a chart. Finished circumference (unstretched) is 20" and the height is 7.75" for the short hat and 8.25 for the longer version. The hat can be hand washed and dried flat. Brooklyn Tweed has assigned this design a skill level rating of 3 out of 5.
The Burnaby Hat uses Shelter, made by Brooklyn Tweed. This is a chunky weight yarn that is softly spun to mimic the look of unspun yarn but with more strength. It knits into a lofty, light but very warm and fuzzy fabric.
