    End of Tail
    Attached
  • 4. Then make your Slip Knot, with the tail on the right and attached on the left
    Slip Knot
  • 5. Begin by Casting On WITH THE TAIL
  • 6. Cast On 94 stitches
    Hint: This will shorten your tail, but there should be 24 inches left afterwards
  • 7. Row 1: a series of Knit 2 Purl 2. For the first two stitches, only knit
    Use attached to knit, not tail
  • 8. Your Hat should look like this
    k2
  • 9. After 2 Knits, move the attached end between the two needles
    Hint: it is important to move the yarn after each 2. If not, you will have more than 94 stitches
    Move behind needle to front
  • 10. Then Purl the next two stitches
  • 11. Your hat should look like this
    p2
    k2
  • 12. Remember to move your yarn to the outside before your next Knit 2
  • 13. Do your next Knit 2, then move the yarn back to the inside for Purl 2
    Yarn moved inside for p2
    k2

  • 15. So Remember
    Before k2, yarn must be on the OUTSIDE
    Before p2, yarn must be on the INSIDE
    In case you do forget and end up with extra stitches, don’t worry, it isn’t a big deal. It is more important to keep all the stitches so the hat doesn’t unravel
  • 16. Your hat should look like this after Row 1 of alternating Knit 2 Purl 2
    Hint: your last 2 stitches should have been k2
  • 17. Row 2: a continuation of Row 1. So this row begins with PURL 2 KNIT 2
    Move to inside for p2
    Hint: this row will end with Purl 2.

    Remember the yarn is on the outside
  • 20. Row 10: this will be ENTIRELY PURL
    Remember the yarn is on the inside

    Yarn Outside

  • 24. The next row is ENTIRELY Knit Two Together.
    Hint: to k2tog, insert the needle through 2 stitches instead of 1 and Knit as normal
  • 25. By Knitting Two Together, this will reduce your stitches amount by 1/2
    k2tog
  • 26. Your hat should look like this, with a total of 47 stitches.
    Hint: in case you had more/less than 94 stitches, k2tog until complete. If there is an odd number, Knit the last stitch by itself
  • 27. The next row is ONLY Purl. DO NOT p2tog
    Hint: you will still have 47 stitches after this row
  • 28. For the next row, Knit 2 Together. This will reduce your stitches by ½ again
    Hint: for the last stitch of your 47, Knit it by itself
  • 29. Your hat should look like this with 24 stitches left.
  • 30. The next row is ONLY Purl. DO NOT p2tog
    Hint: you will still have 24 stitches after this row
  • 31. For the next row, Knit 2 Together. This will reduce your stitches by ½ again.
    Hint: if you have an odd #, simply Knit the last stitch by itself.

  • 35. To finish the hat, cut the attached end so that 10 inches remain.
  • 36. Using a bobby-pin or large sewing needle, weave the yarn through the stitches.
  • 37. Now remove the needles and tighten the string that you weaved through.
  • 38. From the inside of the hat, knot the string near the top and cut off the remaining yarn.
  • 39. Using the original tail and a bobby-pin or sewing needle, seam the two edges
  • 40. On the side without the tail, weave the yarn through a horizontal stitch.
    Hint: horizontal stitches can be found behind the outside pattern by stretching the sides
  • 41. Tighten to join the bottom of the hat.
  • 42. Now weave the yarn through a horizontal stitch on the other side.
    Continue alternating sides and moving upwards.
  • 43. Once you pass the rim, continue weaving through horizontal stitches.
    Hint: when you reach this point you must choose whether to weave through the Vs or s. For symmetry, you must go through the same on each side.
