The Mullioned Hat, also knit in The Plucky Knitter’s Scholar 2.0, rounds out the collection of Tardis-adjacent designs. The patterning is made with slipped stitches, so only one color is used per round. The stashbusting potential is excellent — each stripe of color only takes a handful of yards, so use up those precious scraps of hand-dyed yarn! I used five background colors in the sample hat, but feel free to use any quantity or combination you’d like.

This pattern contains both fully charted and written instructions.

Recommended Yarn:
The Plucky Knitter Scholar 2.0 — 75% merino wool / 25% cashmere — 255 yds (233 m) to 115 g.

Yardage requirements per colorway, per size:

  1. Flannel (grey, ribbing color) — 34 (37, 40) yds / 31 (34, 36.5) m for brim, plus 35-40 yds (32-37 m) for pompom
  2. Wintry Mix (pale grey, outline color) — 95 (103, 111) yds / 87 (94, 101.5) m
  3. Two Drifters (blue, background color 1) — 13 (14, 15) yds / 12 (13, 14) m
  4. Whatta Punk (orange, background color 2) — 13 (14, 15) yds / 12 (13, 14) m
  5. Splendor (green, background color 3) — 13 (14, 15) yds / 12 (13, 14) m
  6. Pinky Swear (purple, background color 4) — 13 (14, 15) yds / 12 (13, 14) m
  7. Triple Crown (yellow, background color 5) — 6.5 (7, 7.5) yds / 6 (6.5, 7) m

Sizing:
Sizes S/M/L — 10” (23 cm) high and 16.5”, (18”, 19.5”) (42, 45.5, 49.5 cm) around. Shown in size L on 23” (58.5 cm) head.

Gauge:
22 sts and 42 rows to 4” (10 cm) in Windowpane Pattern on larger needle, knit in the round, washed and blocked. (Stitch pattern makes a thick, compressed fabric.) Gauge in Seeded Rib is 23 sts and 32 rows to 4” (10 cm) on smaller needle.

Needles:
US 5 (3.75 mm) and US 7 (4.5 mm) circular needles, 16” length

PLEASE NOTE: I knit very tightly. I used a US 6 (4 mm) for the ribbing and a US 8 (5 mm) for the color section, but knitters who are typically “on gauge” will likely need to use US 5 (3.75 mm) and 7 (4.5 mm). Very loose knitters may need to go down even further. Changes in gauge will affect finished size and amount of yarn used—to meet these dimensions, be sure to use the needle size that gives gauge.

Other Materials:
One stitch marker, tapestry needle, pompom maker (I used the Clover Large Pom-Pom Maker in the 2.5” diameter, button to secure pom-pom.)

Skills Used:
Working in the round, slipping sts in pattern, double decreases.
