This pattern uses two contrasting skeins of Dyed In The Wool. The honeycomb stitch pattern results in a highly textured, highly stretchy fabric that fits snugly and comfortably!

Depending on the size you knit and your row gauge (and whether or not you go for the pompom) you may have enough yarn left from your two skeins to knit a second hat. Try reversing MC and CC!

24 sts = 4” in stockinette stitch on larger needle

For those of you who purchased the first edition of the Hank Hat Kit (as a postcard), we accidentally omitted the special instructions for “knit the next st tog tbl with the purl bump below”. So here ya go:
Using the tip of your left needle, insert from top and lift the purl bump onto that needle. Knit the next two sts together through the back loop. The purl bump you’re aiming for is in the column of stitches 8 rounds under and directly below the next stitch.
