February Hat by Kate Gagnon Osborn
What’s better than a free hat pattern? 12 free hat patterns, of course! This year we’re releasing a new, free hat design in Germantown on the 3rd Tuesday of each month.
When thinking about what I wanted to do for my first contribution to the year of hats, I took a bunch of elements of knitting I really, really love - a folded brim, textured stitches, stripes, and a pom pom - and incorporated them all into the design.--from the Designer
Worthy of Note
This hat begins with a provisional cast on, then a deep folded brim is worked in a K1, P1 Ribbing. Once the ribbing is complete, the provisional cast on is unpicked and placed on a spare circular needle and the stitches are joined to created a folded brim. While I found it easy to place the provisionally cast–on stitches onto my larger needle, you may find it necessary to transfer the stitches to a 2nd smaller needle if the stitches are too small to fit comfortably on the larger needle.
After the brim is complete, the body of the hat is worked in a texture stripe pattern from a chart. The chart is worked 4 times around. Decreases shape the crown and a pom pom completes the look.
This yarn pack is dyed to order in 4-6 weeks.
