New Free Hat Pattern from Knit-O-Matic!

Simply Ribbed Hat in Noro Silk garden
Simply Ribbed Hat in Manos Maxima
FREE Pattern by Haley Waxberg for Knit-O-Matic

This is a very simply styled hat that anyone and everyone can make and wear. The 1 x 1 rib helps the hat keep it’s shape and gives it a denisity for warmth. If the ribbing seems tight, don’t worry, we are making it tight on purpose because silk has a tendency to grow. We’ve also made it in a 100% merino wool, which is great beacuse it is soft and has lots of body (it’s puffy by nature). If you would like to substitute another yarn, consider going up to a 4mm needle (or a size 0.5mm less than the median suggested size on the ballband).

A great introduction to the usefulness of short-rows, this workshop will show you how to shape hats with short rows. With the choice of making a slouchy or toque style hat, you will learn how to cast on provisionally, how to increase and decrease with wrapped stitchs, how to pick-up wrapped stitches, and how to graft your hat together seamlessly. Knowing how to knit is the only requisite.
  • Consists of 2 sessions over 2 weeks.
  • $80 + tax (includes materials)
