i made this hat with size 13 dpn's and a lil bit of homespun
it was kinda a pain to work with at first but after a few rounds it got easy
this hat is so squishy and soft i think if i was a small child i would fall asleep in it on a short car ride.. i dunno. so anyway here's the pattern
(oh yeah it's also super stretchy, it will fit an adult or a child. also, if you want a thicker hat you could use 2 strands at once)
cast on 36 and distribute evenly onto 3 needles (12 sts each). join without twisting yarn
knit evenly for 6 and 1/2 to 7 inches
decrease rounds for crown:
1. (k 4, k2tog) around
2. (k 3, k2tog) around
3. (k 2, k2tog) around
4. (k 1, k2tog) around
5. (k2tog) around
k2tog around until there is only 1 stitch on each needle. then move all stitches onto one needle and k3tog. pull tight! and make sure there is no (or very minimal) opening at the top.
fasten off yarn, weave in ends.
this is my original pattern, do not sell, copy, or distribute. link to my pages to share. print a copy for your personal use.
