A unique hat designed with a seemingly random wavy pointed pattern so it’ll frame your face differently as it spins around your head!

This is a stripy, asymmetrical design, with a different number of stitches between each point, giving you a variety of positioning options when wearing it. Increases and decreases form a wavy pattern in the stripes and points along the edge.

I designed this kind of by accident. Well, not really, but it’s not at all what I had in mind when I started the design process, so it really became its own thing, which I ended up liking! It’s a little weird, but I like weird, so I hope you do too! (and yes, the name is a Buffy reference, just because…)

Skills Needed: just basic knitting with increases and decreases, in the round on circulars and dpn’s; basic crochet - single crochet stitch with increases and decreases.

Size: adult (fits my 22inch head well, but the hat gets blocked, so it will block to fit slightly smaller or larger adult heads)

Yarn: about 90-100 yards of worsted to aran weight

Needles: size US 9 16” circular, a set of size 9 double pointed, and a crochet hook size appropriate for your yarn

Extras: 10 stitch markers total - 5 of one type/color and 5 of another type/color; and a balloon for blocking

Gauge: 4 sts/inch after blocking (the hat gets stretched and blocked to fit, so exact gauge isn’t super important, as long as it’s close)

The pdf is is 6 pages full of photos, with the actual pattern contained on one page so you don’t need to print all 6 pages.

(Note: this pattern is also available as a printed booklet through MagCloud here.)
