So, I have a couple of Christmas presents done! Whew!!
I have been trying to get my gifts done in between finishing up a large corporate chocolate order.
These hats were created using a “knit 3, purl 3” pattern. I used 2 strands of DK yarn at one time so you will need 2 balls of yarn of about 50 yards each. Double knitting makes them ultra warm. Cast 69 stitches onto US size 9 needles and continue with the knit 3, purl 3 ribbing pattern until the hat is 8″ long.
Once at 8″, the next row you will knit 2 stitches together across the row and knit the last stitch. Then the next row, purl every stitch and the last row knit 2 stitches together across the row.
When you’re done, cut a tail of about 15″ and thread it through a darning needle. Lift the stitches off your knitting needle and onto the darning needle, pull tight so the top comes together and sew it up using the invisible stitch. Tie the two ends together at the bottom and weave them in and your done!
As super quick and simple project!
