Merry Christmas

Posted on July 14 2015

Christmas is so much fun, but it's even more fun with kids. We are going to have a busy week of family, friends, food, and snuggly pj's. I want to share a hat I made for our buddy, Brandon, love his style. It took less than half a ball of encore and about 2.5 hours to knit up. Pattern & Materials: 1skrin Encore Worsted #9 16" circ (or size to get the look you want) Cast on 88 sts and join in the round (88 sts is for a big head.. He's growing his hair out and I wanted it to still fit) Knit 1, purl 1 for entire round Repeat round for 5" (7-8" if you want it to fold up like a fisherman's hat) Decrease: Round 1:*Knit 12, K2Tog* Round 2 and all even numbered rounds: *knit*. Round 3: *knit11, K2TOG* Round 5: *knit 10, K2TOG* Do you see the pattern? You decrease one stitch more every odd number row until you have *knit 1, K2TOG* Weave your yarn through your live stitches and cinch tight, weaving in your tail. 20131224-000939.jpg Enjoy! Merry Christmas/ Happy happy! See you soon! xx Ash
