MAGNUS “Year of the Rat” Hat.

kr63.20

MAGNUS is a super fun hat to knit and is inspired by the “Year of the Rat”. This is a unisex hat with a cute rat motif which is knitted in stranded colour work. The eyes, nose, mouth and inside of the ears are embroidered with duplicate stitch and the whiskers are embroidered with back stitch.

Knit this hat in a DK yarn such as Rowan’s Alpaca Soft DK or Schachenmayr’s Merino Extra fine 120 for an adult’s or kid’s size or use a fingering weight yarn such as Schachenmayr’s Merino Extra Fine 17o for a baby’s size. The pattern contains all the finished measurements for both the adult, kid and baby hats.
