Short Description: A stripy any-gauge hat pattern, custom fit with style options and variations so it can be custom made perfect for every knitter! Choose yarn weight, buttons or seamed, same background color for the whole hat or switch colors, standard slouchy style or fitted, plus a garter stitch variation is included.
Finished Measurements: custom fit to any head; standard shape is slouchy on top (approx 10 inches / 25 cm tall) but that can be changed/customized
Materials Used: any weight yarn can be used, in 2 or more colors (yardage estimates: 80-120 yards / 70-110 meters total in bulky; 100-150 yards / 90-140 meters total in worsted; 180-230 yards / 165-210 meters total in sport; 200-260 yards / 180-240 meters total in fingering); also, buttons if making the buttoning version (size and quantity varies depending on gauge)
Needle Size: needles sized to match yarn - a long circular (24 inches / 60 cm or longer) is recommended - either use just the one long circular, working crown using magic loop method, or use double pointed needles for the crown in the round if preferred
Pattern Includes: detailed instructions for making the hat custom sized, shaped how you want, technique how-to’s (including how to carry yarn between stripes neatly along the back), and the garter stitch variation instructions
Skill Level: intermediate
Other Details: Even though the pattern is for any gauge, there is no swatching needed, and very little (extremely basic) math. It’s a fun and quick knit once you get the hang of working with the short rows and stripes.
