The world is made of silt and stone, the granular material and solid minerals suspended in water or settled on the earth. As sediment forms a shape, so does the Silt & Stone Hat grow from a mixture of stitches that settle together. The wide garter and cable brim is knit sideways and grafted, then stitches are picked up for the crown and worked in the round with decreases to the top. The result is a chunky hat with a little slouch, both warm and textural from its mixture of elements.
Hat sizes: XS (S, M, L); 15.25 (17.5, 19.75, 22)" brim circumference, unstretched.
Mitten Sizes: S (M, L); 6.75 (8, 9.25)" palm circumference, and 6.25 (7.25, 8.5)" length from wrist to tip, unstretched. The 6" long cuff is very stretchy; the garter stitch will stay snug while the cable expands around the wrist.
