Chutes & Ladders
Named for the children’s game, inspired by the undulations and rungs of the pattern repeat- this is a challenging but fun pattern to knit and a great hat to wear.
Knit in the round with circular and double pointed needles.
200 - 230 yards sport weight yarn, sample in Quince & Co Chickadee,
shown in River and in Split Pea.
Gauges : 6.5 stitches =1” in stockinette stitch + 2” repeat= 20 inch hat
6 stitches =1” in stockinette stitch + 2.175” repeat= 21.5 inch hat
5.75 stitches =1” in stockinette stitch + 2.25” repeat= 23 inch hat
