I had size 8mm and it turned out exactly my size. Warnings When knitting stitches together, always count them at the end of a row to make sure you have the correct number. Everyone likes the simplicity of the look.
Easy Knit Hat for Beginners
Also , how did you make those braids? I would like to make it for my great nephew!! Thank- you for your help!! Do you have any easy patterns on how to knit slippers or socks using straight needles? For kids age 5 to 7. If so, do you have a pattern for that too? For your first decrease row, you will knit 8 stitches and then knit the next 2 stitches together Continue to knit 8 and then 2 together all of the way across that first decrease row.
When you have completed your last decrease row, since you started with 80 stitches, you should have 14 stitches left on your needle. Since this is your first project, I would recommend that you abandon the k1p1 pattern that you used for the lower body of the hat and continue the rest of the hat in a basic stockinette stitch, knit the right side rows and purl the wrong side rows keeping in mind that the decrease rows are on the right side Sherry, if you double the worsted weight yarn, 60 stitches should be fine.
I often double the weight and stay with that number. I cast on 80 stiches. I did the border k2p2. Rest I'm doing in k1p1. And I've stiched it to 5 inches. Now, in my first decreasing row, I'll do k8p8, and then knit k9p9tog? I'm sorry I'm lost at the decreasing pattern. Kindly do guide me. This is my first knitting experience so I'm a bit slow. Also, your's is the only procedure I actually liked. Is the worsted wt doubled? I mean, when I start the firt decreasing row, I knit 8 ks normally, and then the 9th and 10th together?
If you add more stitches, the decrease rows remain the same, starting as you normally would with k8 k2tog. When you reach the end of the pattern, you will have 14 rather than 12 stitches left on your needle. Hi I'm looking to do this pattern for a man with a larger head so was wanting to add 20 stitches to the cast on and I understand you then have to add two decrease rows but I'm unsure of where I add them to?
Would it be k10 k2tog then k9 k2tog? I am going to try this. But I have a question. Why don't you bind off then seam together? I don't understand 'closing off the top'. Can you please be a bit more specific and simpler when explaining this?
I read the other comments and still dont know what it means. Thanks a lot for this! I am rather new to knitting, so watching things come along is rather exciting! I cast on 60 stitches, and hope the hat is big enough! I usually close the top by drawing the end of the yarn around and back through the stitches that remain on the needle, then pulling it tight.
Why Easy Hat Knitting? The pattern in this article is my favorite because: It's simple It's versatile I use various types of yarns and stitches from hat to hat I can make one in about two hours For the same reasons, this is also a wonderful project for beginning knitters and those new to hat knitting patterns.
What You Need 1 ball of yarn worsted weight or larger Size 9 straight needles, crochet hook, or tapestry needle Directions Cast on 60 stitches. Work in k1p1 rib for 4 rows I sometimes do k2p2 rib instead Switch to a stockinette stitch or any stitch you like and work back and forth until the hat measures 5 inches long. Begin to decrease rows as follows: Row 1 k8, k2tog across Row 2 purl Row 3 k7, k2tog across Row 4 purl Row 5 k6, k2tog across Row 6 purl Row 7 k5, k2tog across Row 8 purl Row 9 k4, k2tog across Row 10 purl Row 11 k3, k2tog across Row 12 purl Row 13 k2, k2tog across Row 14 purl Row 15 k1 k2tog across There should be 12 stitches left on your needle.
Additional Sizes for Infants and Large Heads I normally adjust the size of this had simply by changing needle size or yarn weight—smaller needles and yarn for children or infant hats, bigger for people with large heads—and it works very well. K1P1 Means "Knit 1, Purl 1". Questions must be on-topic, written with proper grammar usage, and understandable to a wide audience.
But how do I add a decrease row when I get to that part? Love this pattern, get it done in a night. Looks great in seed stitch. I made this exactly and it will fit a 7 year old at best haha.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for the easiest and quickest hat EVER! Very nice and easy to understand. Two weeks ago Lisa asked how many stitches do you cast on a cap for a 5 year old?? I never saw a response to her question. Hide the excess yarn. Grab the loose end and pull it down through the top of the hat with your crochet hook. Cut it down to about a few inches. Weave in the end using a darning needle down the length of your hat. This will remain secure and tight and hide the seam.
You can also hide the starting tail end by weaving it through the hat as well. You can't really know since it depends on the yarn. The best way is to knit a swatch and then measure it. This will give you the most accurate answer.
Not Helpful 2 Helpful Keep knitting until the hat is almost big enough to fit on your head before you begin to decrease. If it comes out a little large, you can roll up the bottom edge of the hat a bit more. Not Helpful 3 Helpful You remove the stitch markers from the hat. You can do this by either getting stitch markers that open up like safety pins or by slipping them off your needle as you pass them while knitting and no longer require them.

If you've cast on an odd number of stitches, you will need to knit or purl two stitches at one and only one!
Not Helpful 11 Helpful How do I know when I'm on the same row to begin decreasing? Or does this matter? When you first begin circular knitting, you need to place a stitch marker at the very last stitch in the row.
If you don't have any stitch markers, a paper clip will do just fine. That way, you'll know every time when you've reached the end of your row and begun a new one. This is extra important in circular knitting so that it comes out right and everything looks even. Not Helpful 4 Helpful 9. Use 5 double-pointed needles. You place 30 stitches on the first needle, 30 on the second, 30 on the third and 30 on the fourth. Then you use the fifth needle to knit. Your fifth needle will constantly replace the needle that held the quarter that you just knitted.
After you have knitted the first stitches, you join the beginning and the end to create a square. By this method, you also need to make sure that you untwist the stitches that you have already done. Now you can start knitting in the round or square while still on the needles, it will look like a square.
Follow the rest of the steps as explained above. Not Helpful 3 Helpful 6. Whenever I try to knit a hat, I end up with a long line of stitches instead of a hat shape that is connected together.
