BLÆST is a simple hat design suitable for both men and women, boys and girls. Blæst is also the Danish word for wind. The pattern comes in two sizes to fit both a child, a teen and an adult. You can change the style of the hat by regulating the length of the hat or adding a pom-pom. The hat is worked bottom up using the Cable Cast On method. This cast on creates an elastic edge perfect for hats.

There are two sizes.

Size 1 fits head sizes 53 – 58 cm / 21 – 23 inches.
Size 2 fits head sizes 56 – 61 cm / 22 – 24 inches.
