Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,
I am back this morning with a new free pattern for you. My daughter, TC (The Collector), designed this hat from scratch and I knit it up for her. She picked every detail and color. TC simply loves her new hat and wears it night and day, indoors and outdoors. It is pretty cute to see someone enjoy a handknit like this.
Hopefully you will enjoy your version of TC’s Cozy Hat, too!
Here is some information you might like to know about this quick and simple earflap hat:
Finished measurement: 20-inch circumference
Note: TC’s head measures 21 ½-inches. The hat will fit would fit a 19-21 ½-inch head circumference. The hat has a snug fit.
Yarn: Spud & Chloë Outer (65% superwash wool, 35% organic cotton; 100 grams/60 yards), 1 skein each in Flannel #7201, Bayou #7207 and Soapstone #7200
Needles: US size 15 sixteen-inch circular and set of 4 double-pointed needles or size to obtain gauge
Gauge: 2 stitches per inch in stockinette stitch
The hat is knit and then the earflaps are picked up and knit down from the cast on edge.
The trim is braided separately and sewn on. The finished effect is wonderful.
