Knitted hats

Hello again, fellow knitters! Today I thought we would talk about a new knit pattern ! Let’s talk about hats! Who doesn’t like a nice warm knitted hat. They come in all different forms and sizes , and in all the colors of the world actually. And when I say warm, I don’t mean to imply that the only elegant and likable knitted hats, are the winter ones. Different fashion designers are implementing knitted summer hats into their styles for example.

Today I will demonstrate a very simple but also beautiful and catchy design and pattern! I’m talking about the famous “Waffle Hat “ pattern.

You will need some small circular DP needles, a ball of mohair, and some worsted yarn. The design will make of 22 stitches of about 6 cm long. Next, let’s cast on 112 stitches on the circular needles.Knit rib, K2, P2, over the 5 next rounds. For the pattern , we should use an extra needle and slip 6 stitches( knitting 2 of them, purling the other 2 and knitting again the last 2), on the extra needle. Now, wrap the mohair twice around the 6 stitches.

Continue like this:

-Knit a rib, K2 , P2 over the 5 next rounds, K2, P 2;
Start decreasing right after a round of the pattern. Switch to DP needles.
Round 1: * K2, K2tog, K2, P2* Repeat from * to * throughout the round.
Round 2-4:* K5, P2* Repeat from * to * throughout the round.
Round 5: * K1, K2tog, K2, P2* Repeat from * to * throughout the round.
Round 6-8: * K4, P2* Repeat from * to * throughout the round.
Round 9: * K1, K2tog, K1, P2* Repeat from * to * throughout the round.
Round 10: * K3, P2* Repeat from * to * throughout the round.
Round 11: * K2tog, K1, P2* Repeat from * to * throughout the round.
Round 12: * K2, P2* Repeat from * to * throughout the round.
Round 13: * K2, P2tog* Repeat from * to * throughout the round.
Round 14: * K2, P1* Repeat from * to * throughout the round.
Round 15: K2 tog, P1* Repeat from * to * throughout the round.

Cut the yarn and put it through the rest of the stitches. Pull and assemble.
There you go! You have a new waffle hat!

Until next time!
