I had enough yarn left from my recent hat to create another hat.
I began with a free pattern by Miriam Pike. The pattern features a mock cable brim and a classic hat crown. I promise it does fit my head better than it does my foam head.
The original pattern is available in two different sizes (small and large). I opted for the larger size. I did follow the pattern instructions for the brim and body of the hat, but changed the crown.
The original crown is a bit “boxy” for my taste, so changed it up.
Round 1: (K14, k2tog) repeat to end of row
Round 2 and all even rounds: knit
Round 3: (K13, k2tog) repeat to end of row
Round 5: (K12, K2tog) repeat to end of row
Round 7: (K11, K2tog) repeat to end of row
… Continue in this manner until only 6 stitches remain.
Cut yarn, using a yarn needle, run the yarn through the remaining 6 stitches and weave in end.
