Sister In Law Hat

Who's recommended this post

The Sister In Law Hat
I wanted to make each of the women who are going to be my in laws a unique but pretty hat in soy wool stripes because I love the yarn. This one is for my sister in law to be Savy. It's a neat pattern because it alternates squares of stockinette stitch and simple lace. It is knit in the round, and will have a section in the back of the hat where two of the same squares are next to eachother but looks fine. Enjoy the hat pattern! Remember you can make one for yourself or for a friend but you cannot sell them and if you want to share the pattern share the link and not the pattern itself. Happy Knitting!
Materials:
  • Worsted Weight Yarn (I used Soy Wool Stripes)
  • Size 8 circulars and/or dpn's
  • 1 stitch marker to mark beginning of row
