Wooded Walk Hat


Apples, evergreens, sheep, and mushrooms - what more could you want from a walk in the woods? 

When choosing your own colors, feel free to be creative but make sure whatever colors you choose will provide enough contrast to show up. 

Materials:

Briggs and Little Heritage

A Main Color (white, sage) 1 skein

B Brown (separation lines, apple stems)

C Fawn (mushroom stems)

D Red (mushrooms and apples)

E Black (trees on Sage hat, sheep in all)

F Bleached White/Sheep’s Grey  (sheep bodies)

G Dark Green (trees, apple leaves)

B-G require less than an ounce of yarn, approx 50 yards or much less.

Ribbing: size 3mm double pointed needles

Body: size 4.5mm double pointed needles

Sized for an adult head. For children’s size, go down a needle size. The fit is tight, like a beanie style hat. For a looser hat, increase your needle size, or increase the stitches by increments of 10.

This hat will want to be vigorously blocked! Also, a great colorwork tip is to hold one color in each hand. This will help keep you mindful of tension and reduce puckering.

 

Ribbing:

On smaller needles, cast on 100 stitches. Work in knit 1, purl 1 rib for 5 rows, working in the round.

Begin Chart, Work to End

Crown Shaping:

Work one round even in main color after chart. Break other colors and tie off. 

Row 1: knit 3, knit 2 together around

Row 2 and all even rows: knit around

Row 3: knit 2, knit 2 together around

Row 5: knit 1, knit 2 together around

Rows 7 and 9: knit 2 together around

You should have about 10 stitches left. Break a long tail and thread through the stitches, sewing over the hole with the tail. Block VIGOROUSLY, preferably on a balloon.
