hat knitting pattern

Oh, it had to happen. There was just no way I was going to not go thrashing through the stash after that last post in search of Orange et Navy!

And what to my wondering eyes should appear? Not one, but 2 skeins of Cascade 220 in the colors I was lusting after! HA! The navy is #9449 (tagged for a bucket hat); the orange, gifted to me awhile back by my favorite muse, Edie, and is Color #Unknown. It’s just been biding its time because it is a luscious shade!

Mission: make a fine little hat that I can wear every day until February 5th! I have been eating, sleeping chasing da Bears on ye olde Day Job and wouldn’t it be just cheerful to fly those team colors?! I figured socks would take me forever – still might do it just for luck – and would actually not be visible AT ALL to celebrate in public the way a hat can…

I give you the Player:

knit hat pattern

=====================================

=====================================

Using C1 held double, cast on 76 sts and join to knit in the round. (Yarn is held doubled throughout.)

While continuing to observe your stripe count, repeat the above DEC round every round until 5 sts are left. (Switch to Dbl. Pts when uncomfortable to continue with Circs.)
