Aragorn Hat

Since Arwen was never complete without Aragorn.

Ranger, Warrior, Healer, King. Aragorn is truly a complex character - descendant of kings and elves, wanderer and warrior. For his hat, I echoed the twisted stitches and textured lace of the scarf pattern to create bold and interesting-to-knit pattern that a man will still wear. However, the stitch pattern looks lovely in a more feminine color.

The crown of the hat finishes in a lovely six-pointed star reminiscent of Aragorn's beloved Evenstar, Arwen. This beautiful star is created with the decreases and is far easier to knit than it appears.

The stitch pattern perfectly coordinates with the Aragorn scarf. The matching gloves pattern is in progress. Combined the three will make the perfect ensemble for gift knitting. The slightly loose fitting hat pattern is available in two sizes that fit heads from about 18 inches to about 24 inches. It is long enough to cover the top of the ears.

The pattern is available as a download through Ravelry and in print from my etsy store. It includes full written as well as charted instructions for two adult sizes - Small which fits heads 18 – 22 inches (46-56 cm) and Large which fits heads 20–24 inches (50-61 cm).
