The Misha Stripy Sherbet Hat is a super fun hat for babies, kids, or adults and the pattern provides instructions for 4 sizes: XS (0-2 years), S (2-12 years), M (12 years - regular headed adult), and L (large headed adults). The hat is very stretchy and long so sizes are very versatile.
The hat begins with a tunisian knit border, then a stockinette body, a 6-braided i-cord tail, and finally a puff ball. The pattern provides instructions for 2 variations on the braid and 4 for the puff ball.
The hats are shown in three different colorways of the listed yarn - Rainbow, Fizz, and Botany. You will need 1 skein (218 yds) for XS, and 2 skeins (436 yds) for S, M, or L.
You will need one set of #5 (3.75mm) DPNs and a #5 (3.75mm) 16 in (40cm) circular needle
24 stitches and 32 rows = 4 inches in Stockinette in the round
436 yards of Fingering weight
I taught myself to knit in 2005 and began designing in 2010. I love thinking up a shape or wacky concept and then figuring out how to make it into a functional, beautiful, three-dimensional object!
