I made the Jayne Cobb hat
, but wanted something I could wear everyday, so I made this brooch.
I borrowed this idea from someone else who made a hat pin and posted it to the Jayne Cobb Hat Flickr group
. This mini-hat is knit back and forth on 2 needles, then seamed up the back.Jayne Cobb Hat PinMaterials
3.25 mm needles
Orange, yellow and red yarn
With orange, cast on 20 sts.
Work 2 rows g-st (1 ridge).
Work 4 rows st-st. Break off orange and attach yellow.
Work 4 rows st-st.
K2tog across (10 sts).
Purl next row.
K2tog across (5 sts). Cut yarn and run through all the live stitches. Pull tightly and knot.
Sew up the back seam.
With orange yarn, make a tassel. Attach to the top of the hat.
For each side, with red, pick up 4 sts on the first st-st row on the inside of the hat.
St-st 6 rows.
Slip 2, k2tog, pass 2 slipped sts over (1 st).
Cut yarn and pull through last stitch. Cut a piece of red yarn and thread it through this stitch, so that there are 3 strands. Knot the 3 strands together and trim.
With a glue gun, attach the brooch back to the back seam, or, sew the brooch back firmly to the hat.
