PATTERN DETAILS

A tribute to the iconic baddies of Doctor Who! Stylised enough to be mistaken for a geometric design by the uninitiated, stealthy Daleks are stationed right around the hat, to guard your head from the cold. The colourwork design uses a combination of solid-colour rounds with occasional slipped stitches, and stranded-colourwork rounds. Using both techniques avoids the need to deal with long floats for most of the design, and makes this a fairly quick and straightforward knit. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit in the round stranded knitting slipped stitches knit decreases chart reading GAUGE 19 stitches = 4 inches in stockinette SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS S (to fit 16-19" head), M (to fit 19-22" head), L (to fit 22-25" head). Additional sizes can be achieved by adding or subtracting another 16-stitch repeat (about 3"). SUGGESTED YARN 140 yards of DK weight

Recommended with this pattern

  • DK-weight yarn in two colours. Approximately 70 yards (90 yards for size L) of your main/background colour, and 50 yards (60 yards for size L) of your contrasting colour.
  • double-pointed needles in the same size (for the crown decreases)
  • US6 / 4mm circular needles, or size needed to get gauge.

I learned to knit as a child, hated it, then learned to crochet as a uni student, and loved it! It was a slippery slope to a total yarn obsession - knitting, crochet, spinning, designing, I love it all!
