Description

The name is gentle and unassuming and a little untraditional, just like my hat.

Instead of knitting from the top down or the bottom up, the crown is knit from side to side and stitches are picked up around the edge for the ribbed band. A simple twist stitch gives texture to the crown.
Experience with following a pattern and picking up stitches is helpful. Since it is a small project, it could be a good time to stretch your pattern reading skills. Recommended for the advanced beginner or intermediate knitter.

I used Plymouth Baby Alpaca Brush for one sample (the 1st 2 photos) and Plymouth Encore Chunky for the other sample (the 2nd 2 photos). Only one skein is needled for the hat (about 110yds).
To substitute another yarn, I recommend using a yarn that lists 14 stitches = 4” on the label.

Needles
Use whatever needles give you 14 stitches = 4" (in a 16" circular)and then the next 2 sizes larger (straight or circular).
I used needle sizes 9, 10 & 10 1/2 for the Alpaca Brush and 10, 10 1/2 & 11 for the Encore Chunky.

You create an oblong like shape for the crown by casting on a small number of stitches and then increase for several rows. Changing to a larger needle size makes the piece larger in the middle. You then decrease at the end, finishing the oblong. One end is wider than the other end giving a slightly asymmetrical look. Pick up stitches along the cast on and bind off edges and the sides and knit a band of ribbing for the bottom of the hat. A simple twist stitch, explained in the stitch glossary, creates the raised pattern on the crown.

The pattern includes color photos of the finished project, easy to follow directions, a list of abbreviations and a stitch glossary explaining the techniques used in the project.
