Dream Hat

I haven't posted here for many moons... But I figured this would be a good place to put my very own free knitting pattern! I designed a hat. It's so dang simple but I'm in love with it. Thick and thin yarn is the best! Anyways, thought I'd add it to Ravelry and share it with the knitting world.


Materials: size 10.5 16 inch circular needles and one set of 10.5 dpns
Yarn: about 90-100 yarns of any bulky weight yarn. I used di.Ve' Fiamma
Gauge: Well, I don't really care, but the label says 15 rows by 12 stitches in a 10cx10 cm square

CO 60 stitches. Join. Don't twist.
2x2 rib around. Rep 6 times.

Round 1: Purl all stitches
Round 2: Knit all
Round 3: Knit all
Round 4: Knit all
Round 5: Purl all
Round 6: Purl all
Repeat rounds 2-6 FIVE times

Decrease Rounds:
1: *k8, k2tog rep from*. 54 stitches
2: Knit all
3: *k7, k2tog rep from*. 48 stitches
4: Purl all
5: *p6, p2tog rep from*. 42 stitches
transfer to dpns
6: Knit all
7: *k5, k2tog rep from*. 36 stitches
8: K2tog around. 18 stitches
9: Purl all
10: P2tog around. 9 stitches

Break yarn. Thread tail onto tapestry needle, thread throught remaining stitches and pull tight. Weave loose ends.

Love your Dream Hat.
