Zig and zag your way through this fun project. This hat is a little bit slouchy and a lot bit fun to knit. The added bonus is that it’s completely reversible – the reverse- stockinette look is the one you are actually knitting. It only uses about 200 yards of a heavy sport to DK-weight yarn, and looks great with a highly variegated skein.
Yarn: Approx. 200 yards DK weight yarn. Samples shown in one skein of madelinetosh tosh dk, (100% Superwash Merino Wool, 225 yds/100g), colorway Filigree (green) and Malabrigo Arroyo (100% Superwash Merino Wool, 335 yds/100g), colorway Arco Iris. We also recommend Malabrigo Silky Merino and Hazel Knits DK Lively.
Gauge: 22 sts & 28 rows = 4 inches/10 cm in stockinette st.
Needles: US #5/3.75mm needles (or size YOU need to get gauge), for your preferred method of circular knitting, and a needle one size smaller.
Notions: Stitch markers, tapestry needle.
Skill level: Intermediate.
Size/Finished measurements: One size fits most. It’s meant to be a bit slouchy.
