Pattern Details






Women, Men



Skill Level:

little skill level requirement Novice

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You should be able to knit and purl.
  • You should be able to knit with a set of dpns.
  • You should be able to do cables or to follow the instructions.

Pattern Description:

The pattern shows a way of doing stripes without yarn crossing(tm). That makes the hat seamless(tm) and it gives knitting the feeling of eternity. The stripes just never end.
Of course you can do the stripes also the traditional way, but you won(tm)t want to.
It is knit bottom up and inside out, since I prefer knitting over purling and I wanted the braid to lay on purl stitches.
The pattern shows an overview which might help the advanced knitter to avoid following the round by round instructions for those, who need to be led through the project.
The braid and the eternity technique is explained by written instructions and charts. The latter has also photo tutorial.
Do the longer hat or the shorter one, they both feel and look great.
Feel free to knit and sell the hat where ever you like, but you must not copy or sell the pattern. I would appreciate though if you mention me, GaBoSocks, as the designer.

Knitting and crocheting is my destiny and it is great that DiY is en vogue again.
I'd love to share some of my ideas with ...
