I was trying to decide what hat I’d like to make this month and I’ve been trying to branch out and use different yarns, so I decided to create a pattern similar to my most popular hat knitting pattern, the Wisdom Slouchy Hat which is knit with a super bulky yarn.

So, I decided to create this hat using a bulky yarn instead of a super bulky and I’m super happy with the results.

For starters, this yarn is the softest and warmest evah!

I’m all about instant gratification projects, hence why I always knit with super bulky yarn.

However… even though this took a little longer to knit, I absolutely love it!

So, I’m trying to embrace patience when knitting a project and enjoying the process and trying not to think about what I’m going to knit next ;)}

Anyone with me on this?!

Let’s get on to knitting this thing! :)

Pattern:

Using size 10.5 needles:

CO 64 STS, PM, join in the round

Rounds 1-21: *K2, P2* approx. 5”

Switch to size 11 needles:

Rounds 22-52: *K* approx. 7 ½”

Decrease:

Round 53: *K6, K2TOG* {I like to place a stitch marker after each K2TOG, so I don’t have to count my stitches hereafter, I just K2TOG before each stitch marker until I only have 8 STS remaining.}

Round 54: *K5, K2TOG*

Round 55: *K4, K2TOG* {I switched to a longer cable to knit in the magic-loop-method}

Round 56: *K3, K2TOG*

Round 57: *K2, K2TOG*

Round 58: *K1, K2TOG*

Round 59: *K2TOG*

End:

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.

Block:

I blocked this hat.

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 lightly wet it with a spray bottle and press a dry towel on the “swirl” to soak up any excess moisture and let it dry overnight.

I find that I have to play with it for awhile before I’m happy with it, but once I’ve worn it a few times, it’s shaped just as I like with very little effort.

Note:

This uses a little more than 1 skein, so you can make it a few rows shorter to make it with 1 skein.
