Garters Hat Pattern
Knit side to side instead of the usual up and down folded over rectangle hats. Seamed across the top and side in one long seam for minimal weaving in of ends!
Beginner- You need to know how to cast on, knit, purl, bind off
Size: Adult 20-22 inches around
To make the hat you will need:
-70 yards bulky weight handspun Midnightsky Fibers yarn
-40 yards bulky or super bulky novelty yarn from Midnightsky Fibers, such as coil yarn or thick and thin handspun yarn
-Size 15 needles or size to get gauge.
-A tapestry needle to weave in ends
1.5 stitches/inch. Do a gauge swatch to make sure you have the correct gauge.
Bulky- the bulky weight handspun
Novelty- the special accent yarns (that you need 40 yards of)
Choose a plain yarn and one special yarn. You can mix and match several novelty handspun yarns with shorter yardage for the 40 yards needed of the special yarn, the other yarn will help keep the gauge consistent throughout
