Stitch Studio by Nicole Mystic Wave Wedge Hat

You don't need to be Scottish to pull off this tam o'shanter inspired knit cap.

Use a gauge of 16 sts x 32 rows (4") in Garter st to knit a shawl that measures approximately 22" in circumference x 9-3/4" high. Be sure to check your gauge. If it takes you fewer stitches to match the gauge, try using a smaller size needle; if it takes you more stitches, try a larger size needle.
