Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,
Please note: Nov. 2, 2010, correction made on the hat pattern pdf to: Cast on 136 stitches.
I’m back today with the matching hat for the fun fingerless mitts I posted recently. This hat can be made in the mult-colored stripe pattern or you could make one hat out of one skein of Spud & Chloë Fine! You decide. I included instructions for both the striped version and the one color version of the hat in the pattern.
The hat is very stretch and will fit a wide variety of head sizes both smaller and bigger than the 19.5 inch finished circumference of the hat. TC’s head is 21.5 inches around and mine is 22 inches around. It fits us both great!
Here is some information you might like to know:
Size: To fit an average older child to woman’s head (19 ½ inches finished circumference with up to 3 inches stretch)
Yarn: Spud & Chloë Fine (80% superwash wool, 20% silk; 248 yards/65 grams), 1 skein each in Shitake #7814, Dachshund #7803, Popcorn #7800, Tutu #7807, Sassafras #7808, Cricket #7804 and Calypso #7806
OR 1 skein of Fine will make the Happily Ever After Hat in one color!
OR 2 skeins of Fine in two shades to stripe will make 2 Happily Ever After Hats
US size 3, a 16-inch circular and a set of 4 double-pointed needles OR size to obtain gauge
Gauge: 7 stitches per inch in stockinette stitch
The hat is very basic but the beautiful color combination make it shine like no other. Sometimes simple is the best. The Spud & Chloë Fine is a superwash wool and silk blend and it is a treat to knit. I can’t say enough good things about Fine. You really have to try it. This hat project that can be completed with only one skein of Fine is the perfect way to try out this yarn if you haven’t already.
