This pattern made its debut at the Halos of Hope booth during STITCHES East 2012 in Hartford, CT.

From the designer, Kimberly:
In creating this hat for Halos of Hope, I was inspired on how my husband’s aunt called herself a “Cancer Warrior” instead of a survivor. She is an angel always full of fire and and spirit, hence I decided to put “points” on her halo by way of a hat. Stitch markers and mathematics become your friend when you knit up this “only looks complicated” beanie full of twisted stitches. Use a soft washable yarn because this hat will be a much-worn favorite.

There is an updated version available that better explains in the written instructions how to knit Round 10. Please contact the designer for any questions.

Needles: I used Hiya Hiya Bamboo 40-inch needles for Magic Loop testing, and used Hiya Hiya Sharps 16-inch with Kollage DPNS for other knitting in the round tests.

Notions: I used 1 distinct stitch marker to show the beginning of the round with 3 other markers. Also used 1 locking marker with no other markers in testing.

Gauge: The hat is knitted according to “until number of inches” per instructions.

Stitches: The M1P is purled through the back loop. This prevents a hole from appearing between the first round of decreases.

Size: Adult sizes -- medium (large)
Approximately 18 (20) inches circumference (unstretched)
6” height before crown
