Coiffure Hat

from myriadlane

Coiffure Hat

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knitting in the round
  • Decreasing

Pattern Description:

For some reason, this hat initially reminded me of a beehive, which then reminded me of that old school beehive hairdo, which then led me to realize that not only are hats warm and comfy, but they can also be a great hairstyle fix on those days when you just don't feel like having a hairstyle at all. This hat is a great lesson in knits and purls in the round - the 1 x 1 ribbing transitions into a Seed Stitch pattern, demonstrating the different textures that can be accomplished with a very minor tweak in your stitch pattern. The texture looks great with either heavily or slightly variegated yarns.


20 stitches = 4"/10 cm in Seed Stitch pattern.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Adult Small/Medium [Medium/Large]. 19"/48 cm [22"/56 cm] circumference after blocking.


  • US #6/4.0 mm (or size to get gauge) for knitting in the round (either 16"/40 cm circular and double points, or two circulars, or one long circular for magic loop)
  • One size larger needles for knitting in the round.

You Will Also Need:

  • Tapestry needle
  • Pom pom maker
  • Stitch markers (one of which is unique)
