Quick knit using super-bulky yarn and short rows. Most of the hat is knit back and forth on straight needles, with only the small brim using circular needles.
Great for handspun yarn and held-together strands!
The pictured blue multicolor hat was made with an extra short row in each section to make it wider and more tam-like.
6.75 sts = 4 inches in stockinette stitch. This makes a fairly slouchy hat, for a closer fit shoot for 7-8 sts = 4 inches.
Hi! I make lots of things. My grandmother taught me to knit when I was 4 and created a monster.
