Remember that scene from Prisoner of Azkaban where the guys are eating those animal crackers? Ron is wearing this hat, which I made for a swap. I tried my hardest to make it look authentic, but there is never really a good shot of it in the movie. I used this site as a starting point: http://www.woolgathering.net/archives/cat_rons_animal_crackers_hat.html but made the rest up myself.


Colors: I used Brown Sheep Co. Nature Spun in Olive, Black and White, Lambs Pride in Spice for the red, and Lion Brand wool for the lighter green. Any worsted weight yarn will work.
Gauge: 18 sts = 4 inches
CO 96 sts in olive on size 7 needles
Work K2P2 rib for 6 rows
Switch to size 8 needles and work from color chart
Work 6 more rows in olive
Decrease rows:
Row 1: *K6, K2tog* around
Row 2 and all even number rows: Knit
Row 3: *K5, K2tog* around
Row 5: *K4, K2tog* around
Row 7: *K3, K2tog* around
Row 9: *K2, K2tog* around
Row 11: *K1, K2tog* around
Row 13: *K2tog* around
Cut 6 inch tail and run through all live sts.
Pick up 16 sts on both sides of hat
Starting with a purl row, work the first and last 2 sts in garter stitch and the rest in stockinette. Work 15 rows.
Decrease rows:
Row 1: K2, SKP, K to last 4 sts, K2tog, K2
Row 2: K2, P to last 2 sts, K2
Repeat these two rows 4 times.
Knit 2 rows and leave the 8 live sts on a holder.
Braids: Cut a total of 9 24-inch lengths of yarn from each color. Seperate into nine groups with one length of each color. Fold each group in half. Fold one group in the first 3 sts and another group in the last 3 sts of the earflap, and a third group in the middle 2 sts. Braid loosely and knot at the end. Trim edges. For the braid on the head, cut another length of olive yarn and fold each of the 3 remaining groups over it. Braid and knot. Take the length of yarn and put it through the small hole on the very top of the head and weave in ends. Block, wear, and eat magical animal crackers.

Wow, that's a really cool hat! Love the colours.

It looks really nice. It's really hard to tell what the hat looks like in the movie... but you made it look like something Ron would wear, and the parts you can see look perfect. Nice job.
