Skill Level:

medium skill level requirement Intermediate

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit
  • purl
  • short rows
  • provisional cast on
  • grafting
  • welt stitch

Pattern Description:

This is the fourth of my series of hats exploring the potential of the welt stitch. In this case, the welt is turned on it's side as the hat is worked sideways, flat, with short rows. A little bit of contrast stitching gives an otherwise subtle hat a little pop of pizazz!


23 st and 30 rows in 4 inches in stockinette. Row gauge is more important.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Fits ~ 21-22" head


  • Sport weight yarn, 100g/225 yards (Louet Gems Sport in Linen Gray)
  • Scrap of contrast yarn (Malabrigo Merino Worsted in Frank Ochre)
  • US size 5 needles- either 16" or 24" circulars, or a long straight (You will be working flat)

You Will Also Need:

  • darning needle
