This is my entry for our Rav group's Christmas Wearable CKAL.
The stitch pattern looks nicer with the smaller gauge, and it worked well with the yarn.
I cast on 120 sts on a 3.75 mm, 16-inch circular needle, using Red Heart 100% Acrylic (ugh, acrylic. You can use any yarn you want though, as long as it's the same gauge!) yarn in red. Gauge was 5.5 sts per inch. And since I cast on 12 sts more than in my original pattern, I had to modify my pattern per round. This is the pattern repeat I used:
Blank square means knit
\ is p2tog
o is yarn over
In this newer version, instead of 22 sts per repeat, I only have 20 now. And 120 divided by 20 = 6, so I knit 6 repeats of this per round, and knit 3 whole patterns before starting the decreases.
Here it is, worn like a regular beanie:
And here it is, worn like a slouchy hat:
Not much slouch to it, eh?
And here it is worn with my hair all up inside:
The photos all look alike! hahaha
You can make and sell hats using my pattern, but please give credit where credit is due. A simple link to my blog would suffice! Also, please send me photos or any feedback if you have any. I'd love to hear from you! :
