PostSubject: Simple Knitting Hat Instructions   Mon May 26, 2014 12:33 am

With these simple knitting hat instructions, you will be whipping out hats for you and your friends in no time at all.
Simple Knitting Hat Instructions No. 1
This is a hat that will fit anyone, and it has an 18 inch finished circumference. Of course, you can add or subtract length as you see fit.
In order to knit this hat, you will need a Category 4 medium worsted-weight yarn. You will also need size 9 needles and a large-eye blunt needle.
Cast on 64 stitches. Make sure that you leave a long yarn tail. You will be using this tail later to sew the hat together. Garter stitch until you have a knitted piece about nine inches long. Then, cast off, leaving a second long tail.
Thread the first yarn tail through your needle and sew the hat together to form a cylinder. Then, using the second tail, sew through the last row like the sewing yarn is a drawstring. Actually, this piece of yarn is a draw string as you will be pulling it tight to form the top of the hat. After you have knotted off the top, weave the remainder of the tails into the hat.
Simple Knitting Hat Instructions No. 2
This is another one size fits all project. You will end up with a hat that can fit up to 19 inches in circumference head.
For this hat, you will need two colors of Category 4 medium worsted weight yarn, color A and color B. You should also have size 6 knitting needles and a large-eye blunt needle. Gauge is 20 stitches = 4 inches.
Using color A, cast on 50 stitches.
For row 1, knit using color A
For row 2, knit using color A
For row 3, knit using color B
For row 4, knit using color B
Instead of cutting the yarn every time that you switch colors, run the yarn color that you are not using on top of the hat-to-be.
Repeat two rows of color A and two rows of color B until you have about 17.5 inches, then bind off, leaving a long tail. Using the tail, sew the cast on and cast off rows together. Then, sew one of the sides together to create the top of the hat. Weave in any loose yarn.
