Kuutar is a Finnish word meaning “the lady of the moon” or “the goddess of moon”. 

The Kuutar beanie is worked from top towards the bottom. The hat is started with the circular cast on method and then increased to the maximum width. If you want, you can also add a small pom pom to the top of the beanie. The top of the hat is easiest to knit using the Magic Loop Method, but you can also work it on DPNs and change to circular needles when it is wide enough.

The Kuutar beanie uses the same lace patterns as my popular Kuutar pullover. The lace pattern is modified from a lace chart found in the Japanese knitting stitch bible by Hitomi Shida. 


1 (2)

Suitable for head circumference of 55 (59) cm / 21.5 (23.25) inches


Note: The beanie uses a strand of fingering weight yarn held together with a strand of lace weight yarn, but they can be substituted for a single strand of DK weight yarn. If you wish to work a DK weight version, omit all the instructions where it says “hold the yarns together” and follow only the yarn amount requirements for the fingering weight yarn.

1 skein of Malabrigo Yarn Ultimate Sock (75% superwash merino, 25% nylon; 384 m /420 yards per 100g), shown in colorway 696 Whole grain, or 240 m / 265 yards of similar fingering weight yarn,


1 skein of Sandnes Garn Tynn Silk Mohair (57 % mohair, 15 % wool, 28% silk; 212 m / 232 yards per 25 g) shown in colorway 3161 or 240 m / 265 yards of similar lace weight yarn.


  • 3 mm / US2.5 DPNs or a circular needle with a cable suitable for small circumference knitting for top of the hat
  • 3 mm / US2.5 circular needle with a cable length of 40 cm / 16 inches for the main part


16 sts (1 pattern repeat) = 8 cm / 3.25 inches in lace pattern, after blocking

20 sts and 30 rounds = 10 cm / 4 inches of lace pattern in the round on, after blocking

Note: Always use the needle size that gives you the right gauge! Measuring gauge from a circular object is hard, so the easiest way is to make a little swatch of the lace pattern starting from row 19 of the chart forward and measuring the gauge from that swatch.
