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.



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.
