This stylish, boho Summer in Robin Hood’s Bay hat pattern is the lace weight version of the Autumn in Robin Hood’s Bay beret. It combines sections of a traditional Old Shale pattern with stocking stitch.
This hat was designed following a visit to my LYS. As soon as I walked into the shop the skein of yarn caught my eye, and try as I might, I just couldn’t walk away from it!
This is the same as how I feel about Robin Hood’s Bay, which is why I named the set after this beautiful part of Yorkshire. I am drawn to the place, again and again. The pattern reflects the pull of
the sea in the dramatic colour, the plains of the North York Moors in the sections of stocking stitch as well as the dramatic cliff edges in the lace.
The hat is a beret/tam style; the shape combined with the lightweight wool means it has an interesting drape. It is big, loose, light and airy which is perfect for the transition the weather of spring brings to the UK. There is a matching scarf which is ideal for beginners to lace.
The skein was West Yorkshre Spinners Exquisite (80% Falkland wool, 20% mulberry silk) in colourway Savoy 371. Both the hat and the scarf can be made from one skein.
The scarf can be found here
The brim comes in small, medium or large. 17 (18, 19)“/43 (46, 48.5)cm. It has charted and written instructions plus a schematic.

as well as all my wonderful test knitters.
The Spring in Robin Hood’s Bay Boho Hat pattern is knitted with yarn from The Knitting Goddess. I used her 4ply Britsock yarn, linked below, and it’s a dream to work with. The colour range is fabulous and you should check out her gradient sets. I love to promote British yarns whenever I can, so do let me know your favourites. I blocked my hat using a large dinner plate to show off the beautiful crown and give it the distinct Tam shape.add to cart show cart

As always, when I’m knitting for the knitworthy members of my family or dear friends, I consider how they’re going to wear it, wash it, the colours they love and what styles they wear.
