My design ideas and advice: This is a classic beanie hat – nice, easy to knit, a true classic.
A great project to learn how to knit in the round with. And if you are an experienced “round knitter” it’s a quick gift to knit up or to weekend project.
There isn’t any sewing up, except securing those last 6 stitches, a great knit for those who don’t like sewing up (though I can show you the joy of joining seams on my Professional Finishing workshop…I promise I can show you the joy)
I wear my Jordan Hat all through the winter…and autumn….and some spring days! It is keeps you at the right temperature and keeps those chilly winds away. I don’t notice I have it on, until I don’t!
And to match the hat is a fab little scarf. I really enjoyed knitting this and it is just a great little neck warmer.
For this pattern I used:
Yarn & Amounts for hat: Two 50g balls of Mohair Tweed (70% merino/30% mohair, 110m/120yds per 50g)
Yarn & Amounts for scarf: Two 50g balls of Mohair Tweed.
Needles for hat: 4mm circular needle (40cm length) and set of four double pointed 4mm needles (hat is knitted in the round)
Needles for scarf: 4mm needles (scarf is knitted in rows)
Gauge (tension): 22 stitches and 26 rows to 10cm square over stocking stitch using 4mm needles.
Size: to fit adult head.
