Wavy Welted Hat

from Knancy Knitter's Patterns
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Wavy Welted Hat
Wavy Welted Hat
Wavy Welted Hat

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit, purl, cast on, bind off, seaming, knit two into one and knit two together (add a stitch and reduce a stitch) short rows..

Pattern Description:

Wavy welts done in feather and fan while knitting the rows from top to bottom along with short row shaping give this hat a new and interesting look. There are no circular needles required, it is knit flat.

Go ahead, just cast on and work flat. The only stitches you need to know are knit, purl, slip stitch, knit two together and knit two into one. The finished hat will have just enough stretch and a feminine, sophisticated look.

You will fall in love with this hat as soon as it is finished. Enjoy.

I like to keep the price of my patterns low because as a knitter, I know that I'd rather spend my money on lovely yarns than on patterns but this pattern took considerably more work to complete than the others hence the greater cost to the user. Happy knitting.

** WARNING; The making of these hats with this pattern might be habit forming. These even more so than the previously listed patterns. You could find yourself with far too many of these sweet little wavy welted hats so be prepared to share.
