The other day I was traveling to meet some of his family. It only took me the day to make it, which is good for me. It's a double ribbed beanie that I called "double up on the rib, extra slouch on top. Please"

I've got directions on how to make it on my blog. Cheesy I'm pretty stoked on this since it is my first pattern I ever put online. Thought I'd share it with y'all. Here it is:






Double up the rib, extra slouch on top. Please.

Needle: US8 / 5.0mm

Yarn: Bulky 12ply Spud & Chloe Outer in Soapstone

Gauge: 12st x 18rw = 4″ st st

 

I use some kind of typical long tail cast on. I am one of those knitters who just uses 1 general cast on for most things. Probably not the most strategic, but aye, what can I say?

Cast on 60 sts.

Row 1: *K2, P2 -repeat from staras in do an awesome 22 rib.

Row 2:  *P2, K2 Repeat from star, I know, totally surprising.

Repeat these 2 rows for about 4.5″.

Once you get to a stopping point (the end of the brim) its time for the fun Stockinette stitch.

Row3: Knit all.

Row4: Purl all.

I do recommend to slip the first stitch of each row to make for a smoother side for hemming.

Repeat for about 2.5″ Time to decrease.

Row 5: *K8, K2tog Repeat all the way through

Row 6: Purl.

(for all even/wrong side rows you will purl)

Row 7: K7, K2tog

Row 9: K6, K2tog

Row 11: K5, K2tog

Row 13: K4, K2tog

.Im sure you are seeing a pattern now.

Row 15: K3, K2tog  - Row 17: K2, K2tog Row 19: K1, K2tog

ALMOST THERE!

Row 21: K2tog all stitches, leaving 6 on needle.

Cut a long tail for weaving about 3 times the length of the hat. Run the end through the remaining stitches. Now use the rest of the end to hem the hat together. I do this with the wrong side facing me. Now I am going to admit I am not to good at this, I always seem to jack it up somehow and one side is higher. I hope, you have more patience than me. Haha.

Now since I used a Cotton blend, the hat is a bit stiff. I would recommend using a larger needle 1-2 sizes larger after the brim to give it more of a relaxed slouch. I would love to see your finished hats! This pattern is now available on Ravelry if you would like to cast on there.

As a warning, this pattern has not been test knit. So please, please, please feel free to tell me if theres any information is wrong. Hope you enjoy this pattern well!

Thanks!

When I saw the thumbnail I thought, "Hey, it's a liberty cap!" I guess it's not quite the same, but kinda. It's generous of you to share the pattern.
