from Ash Kearns Handknitting
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Joyful January Hybrid Hat
Joyful January Hybrid Hat
Joyful January Hybrid Hat

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit/purl
  • picking up stitches
  • working in the round

Pattern Description:

Joyful January is a smart hybrid hat that is fitted enough for the beanie lover and has a little slouch in the back for the beret lover. It is knit in one piece, with nearly no finishing! Starting from the fan, the band is knit flat and joined to form a loop. Body of the hat is picked up along the row edge of the band and worked in the round to the crown. The center of the crown is accented with an optional i-cord button, adding a special finishing detail.

This design is great for featuring that special embellishment you've been looking to add to your hats, such as a vintage button or brooch, or a crocheted lace flower. Shown here, the fancy fan on the band is accented with a glass flower button by BC glass artist, Nicole Valentine.

Knitting this hat will bring you joy and wearing it will keep your ears warm!
