Another easy knitted hat

We seem to be on a rented movie marathon at my house. I think it has something to do with the post holiday decompression.

018

Mostly rainy and cloudy here during the winter, it’s perfect to cuddle up on the sofa and knit or spin.

I found some yarn in my stash and I’m off.

Easy Ribbed Hat (made with bulky yarn)

yarn Bernant Felting Natural Wool, color way 94420

Needles size 8 US, circular needles

I used the magic loop method, see here for help

Cast on 64 stitches, being careful not to twist stitches

Pattern is K1, P1 all around every row

Continue until approx 6 inches or around the top of your head

Start your decreasing

001

Row 1: Knit pattern (k1, p1) 6 stitches, ktog , place stitch marker

Row 2: Knit all around

Row 3: Knit pattern until last two stitches before marker, then ktog

Row 4: knit all around

Repeat rows 3 and 4 until you have 8 stitches left on the needle.

Cut a long tail and draw through all of the loops.

Stitch back and forth through the top of the hat to secure and cut.

Done!!

This quick hat is perfect for just about anyone.

May your knitting needles fly as fast as dragonflies
