The Force Awakens Hat
Join my Ravelry group for updates, new pattern releases, and other news!
This is a pattern for all you Star Wars lovers planning to go see the upcoming movie in style. It’s mostly colorwork, with a slight brim on the edge, which I suggest blocking to lay flat after finishing.
The pattern is written for #3 needles for a female adult hat (26 stitches/4 in) or #6 needles for an adult male hat (23 stitches/4 in). The hat is quite long and sits fully over the ears.
I did the white hat in Silke by Artier Witico and the blue hat in Titan Wool by Zaffiro. The blue hat is an adult male size, and the white hat is an adult female.
This is my first time publishing a pattern, and I’ve only tested it myself - I’d appreciate feedback! Thanks in advance!
Note: A few people have asked about amounts of yarn used for this pattern. I confess that I did not keep track of the yardage, but I can say that I had one 50g ball of each color, and that was enough to finish the project. There was enough of the two accent colors to make a pom-pom out of either color.
UPDATE I’ve published an update with the “missing stitch” in charts 2A & 2B. If you have an older version, just go ahead and K1 in MC as the last stitch or just start another 2B.
UPDATE The most recent version of the pattern now has a more fitted brim, based on some project suggestions (and personal testing).
UPDATE Thanks to redhead71 for charting the words in German. This file can be downloaded separately and used in place of chart 2A in the pattern.
