I finished knitting the hat I was talking about yesterday. It didn’t take long compared to other hats I have knitted on circular needles and/or double pointed needles. I used a pattern from Red Heart only I wanted to have stripes.
My gauge was right on with their pattern. So, if you like their pattern but want stripes like the one shown here. This is the process I used.
- Rows 1-30 use color A
- Rows 31-33 use color B (three rows)
- Rows 34-39 use color C (six rows)
- Rows 40-42 use color B (three rows)
- Rows 46-49 color A (four rows)
After that you will continue with color A to shape the crown according tot he pattern.
I also came across this tutorial video about this same hat! She adds a two more stitches at the front and back and knits all of them. I think that would be great for sewing up the seam and plan on using it as I’m doing another one of these hats for my mom.
