Making a Hat Right-Handed

  1. 1. SEHS Knitting ClubpresentsMaking a Hat<br />With Right-Handed Knitting<br />
  2. 2. Overview of Terms(Don’t worry about memorizing them)<br />Knit = k<br />Knit Two = k2 = k+k<br />Knit Two Together = k2tog<br />Purl = p<br />Purl Two = p2 = p+p<br />Purl Two Together = p2tog<br />
  3. 3. Make sure you pull enough string to have a long tail (about 6 or more feet)<br />End of Tail<br />Attached<br />
  4. 4. Then make your Slip Knot, with the tail on the left and attached on the right<br />Slip Knot<br />
  5. 5. Begin by Casting On WITH THE TAIL<br />
  6. 6. Cast On 94 stitches<br />Hint: This will shorten your tail, but there should be 24 inches left afterwards<br />
  7. 7. Row 1: a series of Knit 2 Purl 2. For the first two stitches, only knit<br />Use attached to knit, not tail<br />
  8. 8. Your Hat should look like this<br />k2<br />
  9. 9. After 2 Knits, move the attached end between the two needles<br />Hint: it is important to move the yarn after each 2. If not, you will have more than 94 stitches<br />Move behind needle to front<br />
  10. 10. Then Purl the next two stitches<br />
  11. 11. Your hat should look like this<br />p2<br />k2<br />
  12. 12. Remember to move your yarn to the outside before your next Knit 2<br />
  13. 13. Do your next Knit 2, then move the yarn back to the inside for Purl 2<br />Yarn moved inside for p2<br />k2<br />p2<br />k2<br />

  15. 15. So Remember<br />Before k2, yarn must be on the OUTSIDE<br />Before p2, yarn must be on the INSIDE<br />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<br />
  16. 16. Your hat should look like this after Row 1 of alternating Knit 2 Purl 2<br />Hint: your last 2 stitches should have been k2<br />
  17. 17. Row 2: a continuation of Row 1. So this row begins with PURL 2 KNIT 2<br />Move to inside for p2<br />Hint: this row should end with Purl 2.<br />k2<br />p2<br />

  25. 25. By Knitting Two Together, this will reduce your stitches amount by 1/2<br />k2tog<br />
  26. 26. Your hat should look like this, with a total of 47 stitches.<br />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<br />
  27. 27. The next row is ONLY Purl. DO NOT p2tog<br />Hint: you will still have 47 stitches after this row<br />
  28. 28. For the next row, Knit 2 Together. This will reduce your stitches by ½ again<br />Hint: for the last stitch of your 47, Knit it by itself<br />

  37. 37. Now remove the needles and tighten the string that you weaved through.<br />
  38. 38. From the inside of the hat, knot the string near the top and cut off the remaining yarn.<br />
  39. 39. Using the original tail and a bobby-pin or sewing needle, seam the two edges<br />
  40. 40. On the side without the tail, weave the yarn through a horizontal stitch.<br />Hint: horizontal stitches can be found behind the outside pattern by stretching the sides<br />
  41. 41. Tighten to join the bottom of the hat.<br />
  42. 42. Now weave the yarn through a horizontal stitch on the other side.<br />Continue alternating sides and moving upwards.<br />
  43. 43. Once you pass the rim, continue weaving through horizontal stitches.<br />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.<br />V<br />
