I made two camoflage hats. (sorry bout crappy photo quality) One for my dad:



and one for my brother:




The one for my dad was a pattern I made up:

 CO 144 stitches on a double pointed needle. *Work for three rounds in stockinette. Knit 8 stitches. Make an 8 stictch Cable. Knit 16. Do an 8 stitch cable. Knit 16. Make an 8 stictch Cable. Knit 16. Do an 8 stitch cable. Knit 16 Make an 8 stictch Cable. Knit 8. Work another round in stockinette.* Repeat the rounds between stars for four inches. Work a decreasing row by knitting 2 together all the way around. Remaining stitches:72 [Work for three rounds in stockinette. Knit 4 stitches. Make an 4 stictch Cable. Knit 8. Do an 4 stitch cable. Knit 8. Make an 4 stictch Cable. Knit 8. Do an 4 stitch cable. Knit 8 Make an 8 stictch Cable. Knit 4. Work another round in stockinette.] Repeat rounds between brackets for another 4 inches. Put stitches on a set of double pionted needles. Work another round of decreasing by knitting 2 together the whole round. Remaining stitches:36. Work 2 rounds in stockinette. Decrease one row by knitting two tocether for the whole round. Remanining stitches:18. Work 2 more round in stockinette. Decrease for one row by knitting two together for one round. Remaining stiches:9. Work one more round in stocinette. Take stitches off of needles. Thread yarn through. Tie yarn and weave in loose ends.

Rememer: The cap is supposed to curl at the bottom.

This pattern makes an adult sized hat. To make a child sized hat, CO 72 stitches and start at the first bracket( [ ) in the pattern. IMPORTANT: When Making a child sized hat, instead of doing the instructions between brackets for four inches, do them for 8.




The pattern for my brother's hat was from a knitting book I got at the library called Kid's Knitting
by Melanie Falick. Here it is:

CO 34 stitches in MC. Garter Stitch 9 in. BO. Set aside.
Repeat in color 2.
Sew two halves together w/overcast st. Sew side edges then front.
Make tassel in each color and attatch to opposite top side of hat.

That's about it. For both hats I used Bernat Camoflage (cheap acrylic yarn).

I changed the pics. Turns out freewebs doesn't allow hotlinking. They should work now!
