Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knitting in the round

Pattern Description:

It's so hard to be married to a knitter. (Yes, that was sarcasm). You get things custom-knitted for you, you're even given input on what you would like to have in the final product, and all the knitter asks is for a model when it's done.

Why "Restraint"? Because absolutely everything I suggested for the hat (cables got voted down here - alas!) was voted down. And so this is a model of considerable restraint, all things considered. It's a simple, fast, fun knit and it's reversible, so if you want to knit one for yourself, you can wear the slightly-more-decorative other side facing outward.


24 sts/24 rounds = 4" in 2x2 ribbing at bottom of hat, unstretched
18-20 sts/24 rounds = 4" in stockinette stitch

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Fits up to 22" head easily,


  • 120 yards

You Will Also Need:

  • US#8/5mm circular needle
