The Flat Hat
A simple hat to practice switching between knit and purl, with the added bonus of some decreases. Easy enough for a beginner, the hat is knit flat and then seamed. The design is intended to help hide dodgy sewing skills, and make for more interesting knitting.
We gave this pattern away at Handmade 2014, before I realised that some of the numbers were wrong. This is the corrected version.
First decrease row on page two should read:
Next row: p3, p2tog, k2tog, k5, repeat from to last 6sts, p3, k3 (9 sts decreased, 58 sts remain)
Following row stitch count should be 49, then 40, then 30.
