Fast and fun! Worked in one continuous strip, this knitted hat consisted of Top, Body and Bottom. Starting at the Top, 4 stitches were cast on and then gradually increased to the full strip width. Then, by picking up and knitting into the end of the previous rows, the strip was joined to itself to form a ring and then progressed outward in a spiral. Once the Top was completed, the Body commenced downward in a 1:1 row ratio until the desired length was achieved. Then the strip was gradually decreased to a single stitch to straighten out the “spiraled” edge at the bottom. The pattern was primarily a 2-row repeat of garter stitch with I-cord edges and required no purling. And although the pattern was worked in rows on a pair of standard knitting needles, it produced a seamless hat with NO sewing required. I think this would make a great stash-busting project with all those leftovers from sock knitting. I also think it be very effective in gradient fingering wool with a light-to-dark progression starting from the top.
