Winter hat with stripes (pattern included)
Since the winter is coming we need hats!!
This time I made a hat on a request of a good friend.
– 1 ball and a half of (100%) Sport superwash wool (1 ball is 50g/caa 125m) in dark gray color
– needles size 3,5
I also found a really nice “hat size calculator” to help me with the sizes. For normal adult head you need caa. 22 inches. I used normal stocking stitch pattern with additional 3 “stripes” in the beginning of the hat to make a pattern. So here you’re basically just changing knit rows and purl rows until you decide to make the stripe(s) – then you switch, where you should purl you knit and vice versa (I started in the 7th row).
Here is the pattern (because this is my first one you can freely ask me if you don’t understand something):
Round 1: Cast on 80 stitches
Round 2: Purl row
Rd.3: Knit, Rd.4: Purl, Rd.5: Knit, Rd.6: Purl, Rd.7: Purl, Rd.8: Knit, Rd.9: Purl, Rd.10: Purl, Rd.11: Knit, Rd.12: Purl, Rd.13: Purl, Rd.14: Knit, Rd.15: Knit, Rd.16: Purl, Rd.17: Knit, Rd.18: Knit, Rd.19: knit, Rd.20: Purl, Rd.21: Knit, Rd.22: Purl, Rd.23: Knit … continue in this order (purl row, knit row) until …
Rd. 76: Purl row
Rd.77: Cast off
