For some reason, this hat initially reminded me of a beehive, which then reminded me of that old school beehive hairdo, which then led me to realize that not only are hats warm and comfy, but they can also be a great hairstyle fix on those days when you just don’t feel like having a hairstyle at all. This hat is a great lesson in knits and purls in the round – the 1 x 1 ribbing transitions into a Seed Stitch pattern, demonstrating the different textures that can be accomplished with a very minor tweak in your stitch pattern. The texture looks great with either heavily or slightly variegated yarns.

Notions - Tapestry needle, pom pom maker, stitch markers (one of which is unique).
Skill level - Beginner (knitting in the round, decreasing).
Size/Finished measurements - Adult Small/Medium (Medium/Large). 19”/48 cm (22”/56 cm) circumference after blocking.
