Flirty Hat

This hat was so much fun to make! The pattern is super simple, but it's the yarn I used that made it special.


I used this yarn called Flirt, made by Plymouth Yarn, in a bright red color, on size 8 straight needles. Here's how you make the hat:



Cast on 84 stitches

Knit in stockinette stitch (knit 1 row, purl 1 row) for about 8 inches, end on a purl row

Shaping the Top:
Row 1: *K5, k2tog, rep from * to end. You should have 72 stitches.
Row 2: Purl
Row 3: *K4, k2tog, rep from * to end. You should have 60 stitches.
Row 4: Purl
Row 5: *K3, k2tog, rep from * to end. You should have 48 stitches.
Row 6: Purl
Row 7: *K2, k2tog, rep from * to end. You should have 36 stitches.
Row 8: Purl
Row 9: *K1, k2tog, rep from * to end. You should have 24 stitches.
Row 10: Purl
Row 11: k2tog all the way across. You should have 12 stitches.

Cut off a tail of about 2-3 feet, thread it onto your yarn needle, and transfer the stitches from your knitting needle onto your yarn needle. Pull tight, then sew up the side of the hat. 

Have fun with this one!
Binding Off,
Angela
