Easy knitted cap pattern

019

I have been knitting over the holidays. A little, some light knitting that I don’t have to think to hard about. Looks like I’ve got a red theme going…

Some house slippers…006 Easy pattern here

Going to knit another pair for a girlfriend in the hospital.

It has been cloudy and cold here, a little snow falling. So we have been watching some movies. I knitted an easy cap while watching Star Trek, (picked out by Steve) and Julie & Julia.  (for me).  This allows for a lot of knitting and spinning.

Here is the pattern (see hat above)

Easy Knitted Cap

022

I used approx. 200 yds of worsted wt 100% wool Galway in dark red

US 4 circular knitting needles or size to gauge(i use the magic loop method, see here)

Gauge = 17 sts and 24 rows, 4 x 4 swatch

Cast on 76 stitches, be careful not to twist when joining the circle.

Knit 2, purl 2 every row for 2 1/2 inches.

Now starting knitting all around until 7-9 inches, about to the top of your head.

Decrease using:

Mark beginning of round

row 1  knit 2, ktog, around (you should be able to have 19 decreases per row)

row 2  knit all around,

row 3 knit 1, ktog around

row 4 knit all around

row 5 ktog all around, (8 stitches left)

take the 8 remaining stitches and cut yarn leaving a long tail, draw these up with a needle, stitch through several times and cut.

Now your ready to go out and enjoy the winter

  1. I'm watching the same movies, oh and the new Harry Potter :-)

  2. I saw Star Trek at the campus while waiting for my son. I couldn't see all of it because it was in the commons and apparently a club decided to have a meeting (a loud meeting) during the movie so I look forward to seeing it in the privacy of my own home.

    I love the slipper pattern but I adjust it by picking up stitches around the foot opening and knit a ribbed cuff on it because I hate having my ankles exposed.

    The hat pattern looks like a keeper. Thanks.
