Knock it Out Hat




Knock it Out Hat

I used a size 6 needle and Caron Simply Soft yarn.  This hat has a lot of give to it, I made the same size and it fit my head just nicely and also down to my 10 year olds head.

With size 6 needles:

Cast on 96 stitches placing stitch marker to show beginning of round being careful not to twist.

Knit 1, Purl 2 around.  Repeat this round for a total of 4 inches.

BRIM: Keeping with a knit 1, purl 2 ribbing:  On next round, fold brim under so your cast on edge meets up with your live stitches, pick up a stitch from cast on round and knitting it together with live stitch, making sure to keep a knit stitch lined up with a knit stitch and purl stitches with a purl stitch. You will be picking up 96 stitches and have a total of 96 stitches at the end of this round. 

Now working in sections

Section 1
Next 6 rounds: Knit 1, Purl 1 around.

Section 2
Purl every stitch around for 6 more rounds.

Repeat sections 1 and 2 two more times, then work section 1 one more time.

Knit 2 rounds even

Decrease Rounds:  (NOTE:  the last few rounds won't come out evenly, if you have a stitch or two left over, knit them)

Knit 2, Knit 2 together, repeat around.
Knit 2 rounds even
Knit 2, Knit 2 together, repeat around.
Knit 2 rounds even
Knit 2, Knit 2 together, repeat around.
Knit 1, Knit 2 together, repeat around.
Knit 2 together around.
Knit 2 together around. 
Fasten off, pull through loops and weave in ends.
