A chunky hat pattern

An earlier post describe a hat knitted in chunky yarn from crown to brim. Having discovered the approximate number of stitches required I knitted a second hat in a more usual way.

Finished hat

The pattern

Using 5.5mm needles CO 88 sts in smooth chunky yarn and work in K.1. P.1. rib for twice the depth required for the brim.

Change to 6.5 mm needles and hairy yarn. Work in stocking stitch throughout.

Continue until work is the desired length before shaping the crown.

(K. 18. K. 2 tog.) 4 times. (84 sts.)

Purl 1 row.

(K. 17. k.2 tog.) 4 times (80 sts.)

Purl 1 row.

(K. 8. k.2 tog.) 8 times (72 sts.)

Purl 1 row.

Break yarn, leaving a long end. Thread a tapestry needle and fasten off by passing needle through the remaining stitches. Join seam as far as ribbing using ladder stitch.

Using smooth yarn join ribbing using ladder stitch with right side reversed for folded part of brim.
