Howdy positive thinkers and team yarnkara, Eid Mubarak to all our Muslim brothers and sisters all over the world. Today we will get an insight on how to knit a hat using the stockinette stitch.
Yarn of preferred colour and size
Circular knitting needles
A pair of scissors
A darning needle
A measuring tape
Knit stitches (K)
Brim style for my hat: Rolled stockinette
Knitting method for this project: circular knitting using circular needles
Yarn used: KNIT ME yarn.
Needles size: a size 4 and 32 inch circular needles.
Using the long tail cast on method, cast on the required number of stitches for the brim of your hat using your size 4 32 inch circular needles. In my case I cast on 80 sts.
The size of your needle will vary according to the country you are in and the size of yarn you are using for your project and this will also alter the number of stitches you cast on.
Join at the end before you begin working in the round; be careful not to twist your stitches.
Knit for two inches.
Switch to the larger needle in my case to the size 5 circular needles.
The stockinette brim naturally rolls up into itself.
Work the body in stockinette stitch, that is; Knit all stitches for each round until you reach the desired height (about 7 inches)
To decrease , work in multiples of 10 stitches.
Knit 8 sts, then knit the last 2 sts together(K8, K2tog) you will have 9 sts. Repeat to the end of the row.(90 sts)
K7, K2tog Repeat 10 times to the end of the row.
cut off your yarn and finish off with your darning needle
