Basic Skills Necessary:

  • follow charts or written directions

Pattern Description:

This fun to knit hat started out as an experiment in the Bohus Stitch knitting! It knits up quickly and is very warm. You can use up some of your leftover yards of yarn for the different stripes and the Bohus stitch. The main color will take less than 100 yards. The hat features easy ribbing, then a pretty simple stripe pattern, then in the center is the Bohus pattern stitch which incorporates color and purl stitches to add texture. You only use 2 colors at a time in any row. You finish with a repeat of the stripe pattern then, it is decreased to the top! There you are done!

The hat can be sized to fit babies, and small, medium or large heads by the weight of the yarn used, and the stitch count used. I am not giving finished measurements because there are so many variables to try.

Needles and notions; A set of double pointed needles to work top decreasing area, and circular needles to work the hats main body. If using-- fingering weight yarn use size 5 needle; sport weight yarn use size 6 needles; and worsted weight yarn use size 7 needles. Yarn needle to weave in ends.

Yarn color choices100 yards of Main colordark turquoise, and about 30 yards each of red, gold, and royal blue yarn for striping and Bohus sequences. Use either--fingering, sport or worsted weight yarns. The heavier the yarn the less stitches you need to fit and the lighter the yarn the more stitches you will need

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • sizes vary depending on yarn weight and stitch count


  • 100 yards main color and about 30 yards each 3 contrasting colors of your choice

You Will Also Need:

  • circular needles and double pointed needles depnding on what type of yarn you use
