Celebrate the Superbowl Champs with this fun stranded hat!

Knit in the round in stranded patterns, with corrugated ribbing, and featuring the number 12 for the “12th Man”, I’ve selected three colors of Cascade 220 Superwash wool that correspond to the team colors.

Three skeins will easily make 2 hats; switching the colors around may yield a third hat

NOTE: I used Color #887 “Wasabi” for the green in my sample hat rather than #851 Lime. Either will work for Seahawks colors, the Wasabi is a shade darker than the Lime.

YarnFolkAnn has created some great charts so that you can add your favorite team number to the hat!

NOTE #2: I get asked about resizing this hat to fit a child or baby -- I made a baby version using fingering weight yarn, see my project notes here

If you want to knit a Hawks hat for a small child, try using DK or sport weight yarn.
