Knitting Knotes - 200 Hat

Entitled the 200 Hat in honour of it being my 200th project on Ravelry. I had some Aran yarn left over from a jumper and had an idea for hat and I have to say I'm quite pleased with the result.


This is a cosy Aran hat that is not a tight fit but not slouchy either.

Here's how I did it.

Equipment - 4.5 mm circular (40cm), 5mm dpns (5), sewing needle.

Yarn - 100g of Aran

Instructions:

Using 4.5mm needle - cast on 92 sts - K2 P2 rib for 29 rows - on row 30 increase to 120 sts.

Change to 5mm dpns and distribute evenly over 3 needles - use 4 for knitting.

Row 1 - P6 K6 all the way round.
Row 2 - as set.
Row 3 - P6, place 3 sts on spare dpn, K3 then K3 from cable needle (C3B), repeat all the way round.
Rows 4 to 10 - P6 K6 all the way round.

Continue 10 row pattern until 37 rows have been completed.

Decrease for crown

Next row (a row 8)- P2 tog, P2, P2 tog, K6 - repeat to end - 100 sts.

Next row (a row 9) - P4, K6 to end

Next row (a row 10) - P2 tog, P2 tog, K6 - repeat to end - 80 sts.

Next row (a row 1) - P2, K6 to end.

Next row (a row 2) - P2 tog, K6 - repeat to end - 70 sts.

Next row (a row 3) - P1, C3B to end

Next row - K2 tog all round - 35 sts.

Next row - K2 tog all round to last stitch - K1 - 18 sts.

Next row - K2 tog all round - 9 sts.

Cut yarn with a 12 cm tail.

Thread yarn through remaining 9sts - tighten and fasten end.

You could a pom pom if you wish - but I like it just as it is:)
