Skill Level:

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit in the round
  • increase
  • decrease
  • cast on
  • knit & purl

Pattern Description:

Don't wait another minute to knit up that special skein or two of sock yarn that you've been saving in your stash for "just the right project"! This hat uses fingering-weight yarn held double to give you a squishy, warm hat that still has the stitch definition of a small-gauge yarn. It looks fantastic in solid and tonal colorways, and, taking approximately 6-12 hours to complete, it's a relatively quick project!

Knit the pattern as written for a roomy slouch-style hat (pink hat), or follow the modification note in the pattern to create a closer-fitting style (purple hat).

"Adventurous Beginner" Techniques used are:

knitting in the round
twisted stitches (explained two ways in the pattern, with and without the use of a cable needle)
"Make 1 increase" - explained in the pattern
knitting (or purlilng) two stitches together

Materials Needed:

360 (435, 492) yds. fingering-weight yarn (Sample shown was made form Malabrigo Sock yarn in the "Light of Love" colorway. 100% Merino, 440 yds per 100g skein)
US Size 4 / 3.5mm circular needle
Set of four dpns, US Size 4 needle / 3.5mm
