Striped Stocking Cap/Box Hat

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Ability to decrease stitches using K2tog
  • Basic knitting skills
  • Ability to knit in I-cord

Pattern Description:

This is just about the simplest stocking hat pattern you will find. I have written the pattern so that you get to choose whether you use straight needles or circular needles. Regardless of the method you choose, both hats knit up super fast and can be easily adapted to most worsted weight yarns. Best yet, they look absolutely adorable in photos.
