The boyfriend is a super nerd, and dragged me out to go see Watchmen 3 times this weekend.
Three- and I've read the graphic novel.

So, on the third showing I brought along some knitting, just to occupy my hands.
Before it was finished I'd pumped out this:


I've been working on making an openwork hat for the summer, since my current one is hot as hell.
Just thought I'd include the pattern for anyone else who is looking for a nice openwork hat.

It's really, really simple, so more advanced knitters, please don't scoff. I know my "mad skillz" are a little sup-par on this one.


One Quick Note:
I like my hats to have a little "give" or slouch. I'm not really into hats that squash mah hair, so this hat has a little room built in. If you prefer more slouch just make the "body" of the hat longer before you start making the decreases, but keep in mind that the decreases add some length too.

You don't want to end up with some ginormous Dr. Seuss creation.

What You Need:
-Size 7 DPN's. (I always use 3 instead of 4)
- Chunky Weight Yarn-One ball, or as many colors as you like.

Gauge:
(3-3.75 sts/inch)


What to do:
1.Cast on 18 stitches between each DPN.
2-5.Make 4 rows of 4x2 ribbing.
6. * YO, K2tg
7. * Knit each stitch

Really- when I said simple I meant it. That is all you do until you decrease.
I made mine 5 inches before I decreased it.

Decreases:
1. *Knit 5, K2tg
2. *Knit row
3. * Knit 4, K2tg
4. *knit row
5. * Knit 3, K2tg
6. * Knit row
7. * Knit 2, K2tg
8. * Knit row
9. * Knit 1, K2tg
10. * Knit k2tg
11. Bind off.




happy knits

A girl in my Environmental Studies class was wearing a hat just like this. Thanks for the pattern!
