Something for the Weekend

My brother in-law has been pestering me for a knitted hat for the past winter. He has a slouchy winter hat that he loves, the only problem was that his brother loved it too and bought one the same. So now he has no hat to wear when his brother is about. Unfortunately it is not looked kindly on when you dress the same as your sibling over the age of 5.

So last weekend he was at it again. And my reply was ’sure, just pick the wool.’ And he did. It was the fasted and most willing entry of a man in a wool shop that I’ve ever seen! I though I would try my hand at designing myself for once. Only a simple pattern, and nice and chunky to keep out the winter cold. This pattern is very simple and suitable for beginners. It can be knitted easily in a weekend due to the thickness of the wool and easiness of the pattern. I knitted mine in an afternoon.

I used 1×100g ball of Sirdar Denim Ultra in shade 0649. Tension 9 sts x 12 rows per 10cms and using 10mm/US15 needles. The tension can be altered to create a looser or tighter fitting hat.

  1. Cast on 52sts
  2. *Knit 2, Purl 2* repeat to end
  3. *Purl 2, Knit 2* repeat to end
  4. Repeat previous row 22 times
  5. *Purl 2, Knit 2 together* repeat to end
  6. *Purl 2, Knit 1* repeat to end
  7. Repeat previous row 2 times
  8. *Purl 2 together, Knit 1* repeat to end
  9. *Purl 1, Knit 1* repeat to end
  10. Repeat previous row 2 times
  11. Break yarn and thread through remaining stitches. Pull tight and fasten off securely. Graft to make up seam.
