Title: Eskimo-ish bonnet cap. (Now with pattern)
Post by: natalia__m on August 11, 2006 04:33:52 PM
Haha. I couldn't think of what it would really be called. It's a combination.
I had some extra yarn so I made it up as I went along. I really like the colors. (blue &brown &white)
But I don't know if I like the ear flaps. Anyways, it's really cozy. I sleep with it on sometimes.




Any suggestions for making it better?

---------------

PATTERN (finally):

Sorry it took so long guys. Anyways, knit this quite a while back and I'm just going to guess at the number of stitches and the such. Sorry if yours turns out crappy. =[
And also this is my first try at a pattern so if you need help on any of it just ask me.

Gauge:
4 sts = 1" (bulky fabric)

Main part of hat:
CO 110 sts. My yarn was bulky so you might want to do double strands throughout the pattern if you plan on using stringy yarn.
Knit 1 row.
Next row: Purl 1, Knit 22, Purl 1, Knit 26, Purl 1, Knit 22, Purl 1
Continue for 25 rows
Next row: Knit all
Continue for 10 rows and BO.

Ear Flaps: (optional)
CO 18 sts. Knit all.
Knit 9 rows. BO.

Finishing:
handsew the ear flaps on the hat and sew the back of the hat. If it doesn't fit and is too tight you might have to knit a little triangle and add that in but it doesn't stand out or anything. Finally, make a pom pom thingy (not sure what they're called.) and attach it to the back. There should be a little hole and you place it on the hole and sew it.

Alright, I believe that's it. If you have any problems with the pattern just let me know.

I dunno if you could make it better, it's really cute already. Once winter rolls around, you're going to love those earflaps! Nicely done.

I think its wonderful- and the ear flaps are my favorite part! I have short hair so my ears always get cold in the winter, so ear flaps would definitely work for me...if only I could knit! :) Great job!

are you planning on writing a pattern for this? i just made an earflap hat and it turns out that the normal ones make my head look deformed. maybe you could just give me a general idea of how you did it?

It's not that hard. The first thing I did was make a miniature as a model &then I converted it to my size.

Well. I could take a look at it &write down the info &post the pattern on this post. It might not be completely correct but you'll get the idea.
Check back tomorrow sometime. I'll have it by then. =]

Lovely, lovely hat!
But uh, not to be a jerk, but were you aware that the term eskimo is considered to be racist and derogatory? Yup. It is... Didn't know that until I moved to canada, but yah.

I wouldn't make you pay for it, it won't be completely accurate.

No, the yarn was already like that. The colors are really pretty together.

i don't want to hijack this thread because i love this hat! BUT- i just want to say that although canadian iniut peoples may find the exonym offensive, many other circumpolar aboriginals (including alaskan Yupik) continue to identify with the term.

oh yeah natalia...i would totally make this hat if you posted the pattern!

I bet this pattern could be tweaked and look like her cap. Maybe just narrow the ear flaps, perhaps increase the number of stiches on the circulars and skip the crochet edging (which I do anyway). I've made 3 of these and it's pretty easy. I've only been knitting since late July (self taught, TY) and I can do it. The wedsite has tut. pictures. I'll post the ones I've made soon.

http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/na_knitting/article/0,2025,DIY_14141_4860628,00.html (http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/na_knitting/article/0,2025,DIY_14141_4860628,00.html)

Sizes: large child/small adult (large adult)

Materials:

Camo Earflap Hat 
 
1 skein Lorna's Laces Shepherd Bulky
140 yds. 100% superwash wool
small amount of contrasting yarn for trim and pompons
needles: double-point needles, U.S. size 10, 16" circular, U.S. size 10 (or sizes needed to obtain gauge)

Gauge: 3 stitches = 1"

Abbreviations:
co cast on
inc knit into the front and back of the stitch
k knit
k2 tog knit 2 stitches together as one
p purl
rep repeat the directions between the *
st stitch

Begin with the first earflap:
Co 7.
Row 1: p.
Row 2: inc in the 1st and last st (9 sts).
Row 3 and every odd row: p.
Row 4: inc in the 1st and last st (11 sts).
Row 6: inc in the 1st and last sts (13 sts).

Work these 13 sts as follows: k even rows and p odd rows until earflap measures 3", ending after a k row. Cut yarn and place on a stitch holder.

Set this aside, and make another one in the same manner.

Leave 2nd flap on the circular needle and co 20 (24). The easiest way to do this is by turning the work to the back and using the cable co.
Pick up the 1st flap from the stitch holders (be sure that the right side of the flap is facing in the correct direction).
Co the remaining 14 (16).
You should have a total of 60 (66).
Place a marker at the end and join, being careful not to twist.
Knit in the round until hat measures 6"-7" from the bottom (not including the earflaps).   
 
Begin decreases (switch to double-points when stitches become too tight on circular needles):
Row 1: * k4, k2 tog*.
Row 2 and every other even row *k*.
Row 3: * k3, k2 tog*.
Row 5: * k2 ,k2 tog*.
Row 7: * k1,k2 tog*.
Row 9: * k2 tog *.

Finishing:

Cut yarn, leaving a 6" tail, and thread through a yarn needle. Thread through the remaining sts and pull together. Fasten tightly and tie off, leaving the tail if you want to add a pompon or tassel. Weave in ends.

Single-crochet around the edge in contrasting yarn for a finished edge. If you wish, also add lengths of braided yarn to the earflaps.

I believe they were size 8.
But you can use any size needles just convert the gauge according to how many sts you get per inch.

i'm so disappointed! i saw this hat and i thought "oooh that's exactly what i've been looking for!" and then i tried knitting it.. and realized that the numbers don't add up.

so we CO 110 sts... but later on, we're supposed to

P1, K22, P1, K26, P1, K22, P1... but this doesn't add to 110!

oh my head! it is hatless and confused!

but i understand that you kind of made up the pattern a while after you made the hat so it makes sense that you can't really remember what you did. *sigh* any hope for a revision?

I attempted to knit this and had the same problem! I'm a good pattern follower, but not a good pattern fixer.  I hope it corrects, this really is a cute hat!

i did the math, and p1, k34, p1, k38, p1, k34, p1 should work for 110 sts.
i havent actually started to knit the hat, but the math works!
