Description

SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Lion Brand® Gold Leaf®: Black Gold, 2 balls or color of choice
  • Lion Brand® double pointed knitting needles size 10 (6 mm)
  • Lion Brand® stitch markers
  • Lion Brand® large-eyed blunt needle
  • Double pointed knitting needles size 10.5 (6.5 mm), set of 5
  • Scissors
  • Tape measure

    • SIZE:
    • Finished Circumference About 20" (51 cm), will stretch to fit a range of sizes.
    • Finished Height About 9-1/2" (24 cm)

    • GAUGE:
    • 11 sts + 18 rows = about 4" (10 cm) in St st worked in rnds (k every rnd), using larger needles.
    • BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.

    • SPECIAL TECHNIQUE:
    • 3-Needle Bind Off
    • With RS together, hold in one hand 2 needles with an equal number of sts on each. With 3rd needle, knit tog 1 st from each needle, *knit tog 1 st from each needle, pass first st worked over 2nd to bind off; rep from * across. Cut yarn and pull through last st to secure.

    • STITCH EXPLANATION:
    • skp Slip 1 as if to knit, knit 1, pass slip stitch over knit stitch – 1 st decreased.

    • PATTERN STITCH:
    • K1, p1 Rib worked in rnds (worked over a multiple of 2 sts)
    • Rnd 1: *K1, p1; rep from * to end of rnd.
    • Rep Rnd 1 for K1, p1 Rib worked in rnds.

    • NOTES:
    • 1. Hat is worked in the rnd with double pointed needles.
    • 2. When knitting in the round on double pointed needles (dpns), your sts should be divided fairly evenly onto the needles. When working with a set of 5 dpn, sts should be divided among 4 needles. The total number of sts will not always be evenly divisible by the number of dpns. This is not a problem. Divide sts as evenly as possible to create a symmetrical ‘tube’ of knitting.

    DIRECTIONS:

      • With smaller double pointed needles, cast on 56 sts. Divide sts onto 4 needles, with 14 sts on each needle. Place marker for beg of rnd. Join by working the first st on the left hand needle with the working yarn from the right hand needle and being careful not to twist sts.
      • Work in K1, p1 Rib worked in rnds for 10 rnds.
      • Change to larger double pointed needles and St st worked in rnds (k every rnd). Work until piece measures about 7" (18 cm) from beg.
      • Shape Crown (top of Hat)
      • Rnd 1 (Dec): On needle 1, skp, k to end; on needle 2, k to last 2 sts, k2tog; on needle 3, work same as needle 1; on needle 4, work same as needle 2 – 52 sts at the end of this rnd.
      • Rnd 2: Knit.
      • Rnds 3 and 4: Rep Rnds 1 and 2 – 48 sts.
      • Rnds 5-7: Rep Rnd 1 – 36 sts at the end of Rnd 7.
      • Rnd 8 (Dec): On needle 1, skp, k to last 2 sts, skp; on needle 2, k2tog, k to last 2 sts, k2tog; on needle 3, work same as needle 1; on needle 4, work same as needle 2 – 28 sts.
      • Rnd 9: Rep Rnd 8 – 20 sts.
      • Slip sts onto 2 needles, with 10 sts on each needle. Turn the Hat to the wrong side. Bind off using 3-needle bind off.

      • FINISHING:
      • Weave in ends.
