agosto 18, 2010

A friend requested a little hat for her doll and chose this yarn. I made it up and took notes, so here is a pattern in case anybody wants to give it a try 🙂

Slouchy hat for 1/4 ABJD
ravelry link!

yarn: light dk or sock 
gauge: 5 stiches x 7 rows = 2cm / 6 stitches x 8 rows = 1″

note: I’m a very tight knitter. If you are a normal/looser knitter, I’ll suggest going down a needle size. you can make the the 1×1 rib and check how it fits the head of your doll, then choose your needle size consequently

body

k: knit
p: purl
kbf: knit into the front and into the back of the same stitch
k2tog: knit two stitches together

long tail cast-on on 4mm needles 42 stitches

with 3mm dpns
rows 1-3: 1×1 rib (k1, p1 all around)
row 4: k1, kfb

change to 3.5mm dpns 
rows 5-22: k7, p2 
row 21: k2, k2tog 
row 22: k 
row 23: k1, k2tog 
row 24: k 
row 25: k2tog 
row 26: k 
rows 27-29: k2tog 
cut yarn, thread needle and pass it through remaining stitches. bind off

brim

I followed the brim instructions for this hat with some variations

pm: put marker 
sm: slip marker
m1: make 1 stitch with your favourite method (I lift the strand between the two stitches with the left needle and knit it)

with 3.5mm dpns, pick up 4 stitches on the cast on of the hat’s body

row 1 (WS): purl to the end, pick up 2 stitches and put on right needle 
row 2 (RS): k3, m1, pm, k2, pm, m1, k1, pick up 2 stitches and put on right needle 
row 3: purl to the end, pick up 1 stitch and put on right needle 
row 4: knit to marker, m1, sm, k to marker, sm, m1, k to the end, pick up 1 stitch and put on right needle 
row 5: purl to the end, pick up 1 stitch and put on right needle 
row 6: bind off all stitches. with last bound off stitch on right needle, pick up 1 stitch and put on right needle. bind off those 2 stitches

weave in ends and enjoy! if you knit in wool or wool blend, you can block it for a neater crown and brim, but it’s not necessary 🙂

I will try to edit this pattern and make it nicer, maybe even make a pdf.
