Though I called it a "hat", it's something of a mix of a hat, a hood and a bonnet. I think "hat" is still the most fitting.
As with the coat, I added a Fun Fur trim using crochet. However, if you do not crochet, I also describe a method to do this by knitting in the Finishing section.
The ties are I-cord.
Materials: Blue Red Heart worsted weight yarn - 1 skein. White Lion Brand® Fun Fur Yarn - 1 skein.
Needles: 9 (5.5 mm) OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE Crochet hook 1 (2.75 mm)
Gauge: 16 st x 20 rows = 4" x 4" (10 x 10 cm)
Stocking Stitch and reverse stocking stitch.
Cast on 44 sts (including edge stitches).
Knit 6 rows of stocking stitch (SS).
Knit 4 rows of reverse stocking stitch (RSS).
Knit 4 rows of SS.
Knit 4 rows of RSS.
Knit 4 rows of SS.
For the back of the hat work RSS for 8 rows. In each odd row, decrease 10 sts.
Thread the end of the yarn through remaining stitches and tie the knot.
Join the back seam.
With white Fun Fur yarn trim the front edge of the hat and around the 1 st row of the back of the hat with 3 rows of single crochet. If you don't crochet, you can achieve a similar look by picking up the sts along the edges of the garment and knitting 4 rows of garter st.
I made two of the hats and coats to match. I did both in the round. The patterns were easy to understand. Thanks. Everyone who has seen the ones I made for my granddaughter thinks they are precious and couldn't believe that I had knitted the coats and hats.
1) The last few rows of the pattern - "For the back of the hat continue RSS. In each row decrease 10sts. Continue for 8 rows" - I decreased in rows 1, 3, 5 but now that I'm to row seven there are fewer than ten stiches on the needle. How many stitches should be left on the needle at the point where I "Thread the end of the yarn through remaining stitches and tie the knot."
2) "Sew on ribbons at the ends of the front edge" - It looks like the "ribbons" are knitted from the same yarn used for the hat - Am I knitting the ribbons?
Your text "In each odd row decrease 10 stitches" Do you mean from the previous count of 22 rows or from "continue for 8 rows" I made the coat and love it;just unsure about this part of the hat. Thanks kindly if you can assist so I don't finish it incorrectly.
