Kindergarten is all about the ABC's and 123's. Duplicate stitch is a fun, surprisingly easy technique used to embellish this fun hat. A single pattern from the collection, Elementary Hats, also available on Craftsy. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knitting in the round, casting on, binding off, easy duplicate stitch (link to instruction video included!). GAUGE 5.5 stitches/inch in stockinette stitch in the round. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Child-sized: 7" from brim to top when measured flat. See guidelines in pattern for sizing up or down SUGGESTED YARN 170 yards of Worsted weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Cascade 220

Recommended with this pattern

  • 2 colors of worsted weight wool. In the example, I used Cascade 220. You'll need about 130 yards of main color and fewer than 40 yards of the embellishing color.
  • 16" circular needles, size US 7 (4.5 mm) or size needed to obtain gauge (I am a loose knitter so in the example, I used size US 6) and additional needles for small-diameter knitting (DPNs, a second circular or a long Magic Loop needle). For a tighter fit around the head, knit the brim in one size smaller needles and then go up a size for the body of the hat. Tapestry needle.
