This is my new favorite hat… and it’s gonna be a hard one to beat.

I don’t usually get all emotional when I put a hat on, but this one was different… it just felt perfect.

“When I put this hat on it felt soooo good I didn’t want to take it off!”

Pattern:

Using size 13 {9mm} needles with 16″ {41cm} circular cable

CO 40 STS, PM, join in the round

Round 1-4: *K2, P2*

Switch to size 15 {10mm} needles with 16″ {41cm} circular cable

Do not bind-off. Leave a long tail, about 10″, and pull it through the remaining STS remove markers. Pull tight and push through the top hole to the inside and weave in the ends.


Blocking… you’re almost there!

It’s a little weird, but I use a saucer.

Like a teacup and saucer ;)

I put it inside the hat, so the bottom “swirl” is in the center of the saucer and the saucer is bulging outward.

I get a clean washcloth soaking wet and press it on the “swirl” until it’s fairly damp and let it dry overnight.

This hat shaped perfectly the first time!
