Knitting Needle Size: 17 or 12.75 mm

Yarn Weight: (4) Medium Weight/Worsted Weight and Aran (16-20 stitches to 4 inches)

Materials:

  • Size 12mm knitting needles, one pair
  • Worsted weight yarn, approx. 50 grams total, worked 4 strands
  • Small amount of fun yarn, approx. 10 yards
  • Yarn needle

INSTRUCTIONS: 2 stitches = 1 inch, however gauge is not
extremely important in this design.

Working with 4 strands of worsted weight yarn,
cast on:
Newborn: 10 stitches
3 to 6 months: 14 stitches
6 to 12 months: 16 stitches
1 to 3 years: 18 stitches
3 to 5 years: 18 stitches
5 to 8 years: 18 stitches
8 to 12 years: 20 stitches
adult: 22 stitches

Knit every row until the rectangle measures:
Newborn: 12 inches
3 to 6 months: 15 inches
6 to 12 months: 18 inches
1 to 3 years: 20 inches
3 to 5 years: 21 inches
5 to 8 years: 22 inches
8 to 12 years: 23 inches
adult: 24 inches

 Cast off with 15 inch yarn ends. Fold the rectangle in half, (to form somewhat of a
square shape), and sew up the back seam of the hoodie.

Turn the work right side out. Thread a length of fun yarn into a yarn needle, and pass
through a row of stitches at the front of the hat. (This design passed the fun yarn through the second row in.)
Secure the fun yarn on each side of the hat with several stitches. (The fun yarn is not functional, it is purely for
decorative purposes.)

Make 3 tassels. Attach one on the top point of the hat, and one on each bottom front corner of the hat.

HOW TO MAKE A TASSEL:

  1. Wrap yarn around 4 fingers, approx. 20 times.
  2. Tie the bundle together securely.
  3. Tie another length of yarn around the tassel, to form a ball at the top.
  4. Pull the ends of the knotted yarn through to the center of the tassel.
  5. Trim the ends.
  6. Use the two strands of yarn remaining to tie the tassel onto your work.
  7. Weave the yarn ends into the finished work.
