Dumbledore’s smoking hat is casually magical without screaming “I’m a Wizard!” I loved the several versions of the smoking hat that showed up in the movies, so I created my own version with a subtle Fair Isle color story that gave a well-worn and a bit faded feel.

Great liberties can be taken with embellishing this hat. I used tassels and a few beads. I think anything from pom-poms to drapery tassels could be used on top to really make a creative and individual statement.

The piece is knitted in the round, so no sewing! It also uses an I-Cord cast-on and bind-off to define the architecture. I-cord is wonderful to use in place of ribbing to give stockinette stitch support and prevent rolling edges.

Called Thinking Cap in Knitting Wizardry.
