This pattern has been p/hopped
Jan 20, 2015: This pattern is now only available through the p/hop (Pennies per Hour of Pleasure) site. Patterns are free but knitters are asked to donate based on the hours of pleasure received by knitting the pattern. Funds raised go to Doctors Without Borders / Medecins Sans Frontieres.
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
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.
