We are getting ready for the winter here in Hobium Offices. This pattern is designed by Ross Rochester, Smell Great Guy.

 

Stitch Terms:

Knit (K)

Purl (P)

Slip (SL) Slip stitch as if to knit

Yarn Over (YO)

Knit 2 Together (K2tog)

Knit Through the Back Loop (Ktbl)

 

What You Will Need:

1 100 gr ball of La Mia Wool Easy or a worsted weight (#4) yarn. Hat will use approximately 50 grams of yarn.

5.0 mm (US 8) 16” (40 cm) circular needle and a set of 5.0 mm (US 8) DPNs

6 stitch markers. I like to have one that is a different style than the rest to mark the beginning of the round.

Yarn needle to weave in ends

Cast on 90 stitches. Join stitches in the round making sure not to twist stitches. Place marker to mark beginning of the round.

Do a K1, P1 ribbing for 10 rounds

 

Body Setup Round:

Next round K15 and place a marker. Continue doing this until you reach the beginning of the round marker.

Slip markers as you come to them throughout the hat

 

Body of the Hat:

Round 1: *K3, YO, P10, K2tog* repeat to end of the round

Round 2: *SL2, K1, K1tbl, K11* repeat to end of the round

Repeat these two rows until you hat measures approximately 6” (15 cm) from cast on edge. End with a Round 1.

 

Crown Decrease:

Round 1: *SL2, K1, K1tbl, K9, K2tog* repeat to end of the round (14 stitches between markers)

Round 2: *K3, YO, P9, K2tog* repeat to end of the round

Round 3: *SL2, K1, K1tbl, K8, K2tog* repeat to end of the round (13 stitches between markers)

Round 4: *K3, YO, P8, K2tog* repeat to end of the round

Round 5: *SL2, K1, K1tbl, K7, K2tog* repeat to end of the round (12 stitches between markers)

Round 6: *K3, YO, P7, K2tog* repeat to end of the round

Round 7: *SL2, K1, K1tbl, K6, K2tog* repeat to end of the round (11 stitches between markers)

Round 8: *K3, YO, P6, K2tog* repeat to end of the round

Round 9: *SL2, K1, K1tbl, K5, K2tog* repeat to end of the round (10 stitches between markers)

Round 10: *K3, YO, P5, K2tog* repeat to end of the round

Round 11: *SL2, K1, K1tbl, K4, K2tog* repeat to end of the round (9 stitches between markers)

Round 12: *K3, YO, P4, K2tog* repeat to end of the round

Round 13: *SL2, K1, K1tbl, K3, K2tog* repeat to end of the round (8 stitches between markers)

Round 14: *K3, P3, K2tog* repeat to end of the round (7 stitches between markers)

At this point you will want to transfer stitches to DPNs if you were using 16” (40 cm) circulars

Round 15: *SL2, K3, K2tog* repeat to end of the round (6 stitches between markers)

Round 16: *K3, P1, K2tog* repeat to end of the round (5 stitches between markers)

Round 17: *SL2, K1, K2tog* repeat to end of the round (4 stitches between markers)

Round 18: *K2, K2tog* repeat to end of the round (3 stitches between markers)

Round 19: *K1, K2tog* repeat to end of the round (remove markers as you come to them)

Cut yarn leaving yourself a long enough tail (approximately 6-8”) use yarn needle and run yarn tail through stitches on the needles and then remove needles. Pull yarn tail to tighten up stitches and then weave in the end. Also weave in end from the cast on end.

Dear Ross, Caught your knitting Pod Cast about 6 months ago & have been a fan ever since. Even went back & caught Everyone of them. I've never knitted a hat in the round before watching you. Now I'm addicted. Thank You so very much. I can hardly wait until I knit up your hat tonight. I think you do a great job, you are down to earth & don't pull any punches. I am also a big fan of the big box store yarn stores! Love getting little notes (coupons) in the mail from my friend JoAnn. Wishing you the best. Stay true to your beliefs.
