from Midnightsky Fibers
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Louisa

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Beginner/Intermediate- knit, purl, increase, decrease, slipped stitches, knitting in the round.

Pattern Description:

Designed to work in both stretchy and non-stretchy yarns (like alpaca or silk blends). The hat is knit from the bottom up, with a slipped stitch hem to help keep the edge from flaring out. A decorative yarn over round completes the edging and makes the hat more interesting. Instead of the usual ribbing, a slipped stitch ribbing is used to provide negative ease- this helps keep the hat from stretching out too much and keeps the hat in place. Knit in DK weight yarn, pattern includes 8 sizes from preemie to x-large. Includes variations.

Pattern is 8 page version.
