Paste Partout Hat is knitted top-down and in the round. The length of the brim is adjustable. Using Turkish Cast-on Method, it gives an almost invisible, neat look at the top of the crown. The best thing about top-down hat is that it’s easy to adjust the length. You can try it on as you go, making sure you get the best fit. Simple 2 by 2 ribbing with a unique crown shaping is such a joy to knit.


Passe Partout Hat is a simple but staple piece that you are gonna wear ANY DAY, ANYWHERE. Indeed, that is where the name came from. “Passe Partout” is a French word that means “go anywhere”.
