Herringbone Hat - Free PatternWednesday, February 15, 2017
Sorry I have been M.I.A. for a while. If you don't follow me on Facebook or Instagram, do it NOW! haha. If you do, you know that I had a baby at the end of December! Life is crazy with 4 little ones, but I couldn't feel any more blessed to be their mommy. I am sorry it is taking me longer to posts things but please bare with me, it will get better :)
I am so excited to share with you my next hat pattern and offer it to you for free! I am in love with this version of the herringbone stitch! I wish I could figure out how to make it in the round...maybe one of you can help me with that :)
The hat is made by knitting flat and repeating 2 rows only until you decrease one row. Then you go through your remaining stitches with your yarn and sew the sides together! If I were to make it again, I would do a few more extra rows than what I said in the pattern to make it slouchier. But I love me an extra slouchy beanie ;)
Row 1 (WS): p2tog, leave the 2 sts. on the left needle, purl 1st st., slide both sts. off the needle.
Row 2 (RS): k1, *sl 1, k1, psso, leave st. on needle and knit it*, knit last stitch.
There are two different versions of this hat. The first one comes in sizes newborn, baby, toddler, child, big kid, teen, adult, and large adult.
- Size US 15 (10mm) Straight Needles
- Size 5 Bulky Yarn (72-92 yds.) I used Bernat Roving in Teal
- Tapestry Needle
The second version is a chunky thicker yarn with much larger sized needles. It's so comfy and warm! (This is the version I made a video tutorial on showing you in adult size.)
- Size US 50 (25mm) straight needles
- Size 6 Super Bulky yarn (49 yds.) I used Wool and the Gang-Crazy Sexy Wool in Tweed Grey
- Tapestry Needle
