GivesMe Butterflies Hat Pattern
The little butterflies are absolutely gorgeous!!! Plus the hat is super simple to make! You will easily memorize it! Make it for yourself or for a gift but you cannot sell them and if you share the pattern share the link and not the pattern itself. Happy Knitting.
- Worsted Weight Yarn ( I used less than one skein of Paton Soy Wool Silk)
- Size 8 knitting needle (It was knit on straight needles)
- Darning needle
Cast on 79 stitches
Do 2 rows of K1, P1 ribbing (you can do more if you want the hat to hug you around the face. I just put them in so the stockinette st base would not curl.) The begin pattern rows.
Rows 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9 (RS): K2, *sl 5 wyif, K5* rep from * to * ending sl 5 wyif, K2.
Rows 2, 4, 6, and 8: Purl
Row10: P4, *(on the next stitch which should be the center stitch of the slipped stitch group insert the right hand needle down through the 5 loose strands, bring the needle up and transfer the 5 strands to left hand needle, then purl the 5 strands and the next stitch together as one stitch) P9* repeat from * to * ending last repeat P4.

Slip all stitches to the opposite needle and cut yarn leaving a long tail to sew up seam. Thread yarn onto darning needle and slip each stitch off knitting needle and onto darning needle, pulling up tight. Secure then sew up the seam and weave in the ends. Enjoy!
