Happy New Year, Everyone! Here’s a complimentary pattern to celebrate the dawning of 2012!!
This basic hat in 2 x 2 rib is very stretchy so will fit a large range of sizes; it offers a choice of a plain ribbed or a double-sided cable fold-over brim. Having the cable ribbing double-sided gives the wearer the option of not folding the brim over and wearing this hat with a touch of ‘slouch’.
Each hat requires: 255 yds / 234 m Aran-weight yarn; samples in Mission Falls 1824 Wool; 100% merino superwash wool; 85 yds / 78 m per 50g / 1.75 oz in colour 002
NOTE: (Dec 2011) Sadly, Mission Falls yarn is now discontinued but there seems to be lots of stock of this yummy yarn, especially in some discount houses like Elann.com
4 mm / US6 circular needle 16” / 40 cm and a set of 4 double pointed needles
Note: this hat can easily be knit using Traveling Loop, magic loop or 2 circs but separate instructions are not included.
Stitch marker; yarn needle (to weave in ends)
Knit in the round, from the bottom up.
Traveling (Single) Loop: a method for using a longer circular needle to knit a smaller circumference object.
