Instructions

Flat Knitting Instructions

*** Please note before beginning: when compared to the instructions for knitting in the round, you'll find the flat-knit version has one extra stitch on either side. These stitches don't follow the normal pattern. They will be used for seaming at the end, and thus will not be visible on the finished knit beanie.

  1. Getting Started

    CO 82 (74) stitches
    Row 1 (RS): *k1, p1, repeat from the * until 2 stitches remain, k2.
    Row 2 (WS): p2, *k1, p1, repeat from the * to the end of the row.

    Repeat previous two rows until work measures 1 3/4 inches from cast on edge.

  2. Knitting the Body (the tube)

    Row 1 (RS)
    : knit.
    Row 2 (WS): p1, k4, *sl1wyif, k7, repeat from the * until 5 stitches remain, sl1wyif, k3, p1.

    Repeat previous two rows until hat measures 7 1/2 inches from cast on edge.

    Begin decrease section.

  3. Decrease Section

    Row 1: k8, *k2tog, k6, repeat from the * until 3 stitches remain, k2tog, k1.
    Row 2: p1, k3, *sl1wyif, k6, repeat from the * until 5 stitches remain, sl1wyif, p3, k1.
    Row 3: k1, k2tog, k4, *k2tog, k5, repeat from the * until 2 stitches remain, k2.
    Row 4: p1, k3, *sl1wyif, k5, repeat from the * until 4 stitches remain, sl1wyif, k2, p1.
    Row 5: k5, *k2tog, k4, repeat from the * until 3 stitches remain, k2tog, k1.
    Row 6: p1, k2, *sl1wyif, k4, repeat from the * until 4 stitches remain, sl1wyif, k2, p1.
    Row 7: k1, k2tog, k2, *k2tog, k3, repeat from the * until 2 stitches remain, k2.
    Row 8: p1, k2, *sl1wyif, k3, repeat from the * until 3 stitches remain, sl1wif, k1, p1.
    Row 9: k4, *k2tog, k2, repeat from the * until 6 stitches remain, k2tog, k1, k2tog, k1.
    Row 10: p1, k1, *sl1wyif, k2, repeat from the * until 3 stitches remain, sl1wyif, k1, p1.
    Row 11: *k1, k2tog, repeat from the * until 2 stitches remain, k2.
    Row 12: p1, *k1, sl1wyif, repeat from the * until 1 stitch remains, p1.
    Row 13: k1, *ssk, repeat from the * until 1 stitch remains, k1.
    Row 14: p2tog across row.

    At this point you should have just a few stitches left. Cut a long tail, thread it through the remaining stitches, and use it to seam the side of the hat. Weave in all ends and block to finish

Instructions for knitting in-the-round

  1. Getting Started

    Co 80 (72) stitches and place a marker. Join into round, being careful not to twist.

    Ribbing: p1, k1, repeat to end (it's important to start the row with a purl stitch, so the ribbing will line up with the slipped stitches later on).

    Repeat the ribbing row until your hat measures 1 3/4 inches from cast on edge.

  2. Knitting the Body (the tube)

    Row 1: Knit.
    Row 2: P3, *sl1wyib, p7, repeat from the * until 5 stitches remain, sl1wyib, p4.

    rep previous 2 rows until hat measures 7 1/2 inches from cast on edge (for me, this was about 30 rows, or 15 garter ridges) Begin the decrease section.

  3. Decrease Section (starting with a knit row)

    Row 1: k7, *k2tog, k6, repeat from the * until 2 stitches remain, k2tog.
    Row 2: p3, *sl1wyib, p6, repeat from the * until 4 stitches remain, sl1wyib, p3.
    Row 3: k2tog, k4, *k2tog, k5, repeat from the * until 1 stitch remains, k1.
    Row 4: p2, *sl1wyib, p5, repeat from the * until 4 stitches remain, sl1wyib, p3.
    Row 5: k4, *k2tog, k4, repeat from the * until 2 stitches remain, k2tog.
    Row 6: p2, *sl1wyib, p4, repeat from the * until 3 stitches remain, sl1wyib, p2.
    Row 7: k2tog, k2, *k2tog, k3, repeat from the * until 1 stitch remains, k1.
    Row 8: p1, *sl1wyib, p3, repeat from the * until 3 stitches remain, sl1wyib, p2.
    Row 9: k3, *k2tog, k2, repeat from the * until 5 stitches remain, k2tog, k1, k2tog.
    Row 10: p1, *sl1wyib, p2, repeat from the * until 2 stitches remain, sl1wyib, p1.
    Row 11: *k2tog, k1, repeat from the * to the end of the round.
    Row 12: *sl1wyib, p1, repeat from the * to the end of the round.
    Row 13: ssk across row.
    Row 14: k2tog across row.

    At this point you should have just a few stitches left. Cut a 6-inch tail and thread it through the remaining stitches to close the top of the hat. Weave in all ends and block to finish.
