Fall Frolicking Hat Pattern


Fall Frolicking Hat Pattern
Fall is approaching and it's time to dig out the hats or have an excuse to start a new one. This hat is made from SWS and the colors were very fall like to me. I really like the wavy lines (close up in middle picture below) of this stitch pattern and it is created completely of knit and purl stitches. I did use a three needle bind off for the top of this hat (shown in bottom picture below) as I was tired of the way simply threading the yarn through the remaining stitches and pulling up tight looked. I think it turned out nicely and has a very finished look. If you have questions on how to do a three needle bind off please google it or go to knitting pattern central as there are a lot of resources on the technique on the web. As always feel free to make one for yourself or a gift but please do not sell them unless 100% of the profits go to charity. If you would like the share the pattern please share the link and not the pattern itself. Thanks and happy knitting.

Supplies:

  • 1 skein Patons SWS or another worsted weight yarn.
  • Size 8 circular and/or size 8 dpn's
  • Tapestry needle to weave in ends
  • Stitch marker if using circular to mark beginning of round

TO Begin:

Cast on 80 stitches on circulars or dpn's

Repeat these 16 rows until hat is desired length, ending after a row 16

Hi- Love your patterns! thanks.
I've been working on this fall hat and the pattern looks different from the pic. The problem seems to be around rows 9,11,13 and 15.

Hmmmm I double checked and thats what I used. I do have to say though both sides of the hat are very similar so maybe you're looking at the wrong side as the right side? Both will work as the right side but you have to decide which one to use. Hope that helps. :(

It's a very beautiful hat. I love the color.

I had the same problem starting after row 9.
I looked at your picture and ripped back to row 9 and for 9, 11, 13, 15 I k8 instead of p8 at the end of each repeat and it now looks just like your picture.

Kody, I'm knitting on circulars, and I had the same problem with rows 9, 11, 13, and 15. When you P8, your get a 2 K stitches that interrupt the P8 sequence. I fixed it by doing rows 9-16 as [K2,P2,K2,P2,K2,P6] 5 times. It looks the same as your pattern, on the right side, and it follows the right sequence. Hope this helps.

How you would bind off this hat if you were using circular needles? I am a beginner and was hoping you could help since it is your pattern. Thanks :)
