About Me

I'm a married knitter, crocheter, and newbie spinner living in the Maryland suburbs with my photographer- computer geek hubby, 3 cats, and 3 dogs. And yarn. A LOT of yarn. Just ask my hubby.


Yup, I’m a Twit!

Jayne Hat pattern

There has been some discussion of the Jayne hats on the Knittyboards of late, so I figured I’d post the pattern I worked out for the hats I made for Kris and Ed.

Jayne Hat

Cascade 220, doubled throughout – 1 skein each in colors 7825 (orange), 9404 (yellow), and 9444 (red) – makes 2 hats

Gauge – 11 sts/4” on
Size 11 circulars and dpn’s

Hat –
CO 52 sts in orange yarn, join and work in K1, P1 ribbing for 3 rounds.
Work 15 rounds stockinette in orange.
Switch to yellow, and work 8 more rounds in stockinette.
Yellow round 9 – *K11, ssk* repeat from * to * around (switch to DPN’s when needed when decreasing)
Yellow round 10 (and all even rounds) – K all sts
Yellow round 11 – *K10, ssk* repeat from * to * around
Yellow round 13 – *K9, ssk* repeat from * to * around
Yellow round 15 – *K8, ssk* repeat from * to * around
Yellow round 17 – *K7, ssk* repeat from * to * around
Cut a long tail and thread it onto a yarn needle. Draw the tail through the remaining 32 sts and pull tight.

Flaps –
Pick up 15 sts on the bottom edge of the hat, using the red yarn.
Work in stockinette stitch for 12 more rows, finishing with a WS row.
Row 13: K1, ssk, k to last 3 sts, K2tog, K1
Row 14: Purl all sts
Repeat rows 13 and 14 until 7 sts remain, ending with a RS row
To bind off – P1, *slip back to left needle, P2Tog.* Repeat from * to * until last stitch. Cut a long tail and pull through final stitch. Weave yarn back so that it comes out at the center bottom of the flap, and leave a tail for tying the flaps together.
Repeat for second flap, making sure that the flaps are centered opposite one another.

Using all three yarns, make a pompom for the top of the hat.
