This great hat was born from scraps. I found a variety of colors in my Cascade 128 stash. It’s a bulky yarn (nice for quick projects) and superwash (good for kids wear and tear). A unique aspect of this pattern is that you knit from the inside-out on alternating stripes. My daughter is left-handed and we’ve quickly realized that left-hand knitting results in different construction. It was that exact difference that I needed to create a spiraling weaving herringbone. And so, if you’re an ambidextrous knitter, you can simply “left-hand” knit the alternating stripes. I haven’t quite conquered that, and so instead, I turn my work and knit from the inside out - same outcome!
Sizes are for fitting following head circumferences:
3-6mo = 17”
1-2yr = 19”
3-10yr = 21”
adult = 22”
As long as you don’t tightly pull the sl2 stitches, you will get nice stretch to this hat.
It’s a quick and extremely good looking hat. Fun to knit. Great gift. Definitely something a beginner knitter can tackle.
