Little dudes will love shooting hoops wearing this ode-to-basketball hat. It features a large bobble on top and SWISH duplicate-stitched on the front. A great stash-buster, this hat delivers a big wow factor but is far less complicated than it looks! Consider making it in your favorite team colors.

2 colors of worsted weight wool. In the example, I used Cascade 220 (navy) for the main color and Dream in Color Classy (saffron) for the contrasting color.

16” circular needles, sizes US 6 & 7 (4 & 4.5 mm) or size needed to obtain gauge (I am a loose knitter so in the example, I used sizes US 5 & 6) and additional needles in the larger size for small-diameter knitting (DPNs, a second circular or a long Magic Loop needle).

Small amount of black embroidery floss or lightweight black yarn.

Small amount of fiberfill or scrap yarn to stuff basketball bobble.

Edited July 2010: I created a video tutorial on duplicate stitching. To view it, click here.
