The Big Easy Hat Pattern

Quick and easy weekend or one day project.

Needles: 6mm
Yarn: Aran, or any yarn that suits 6mm needles (look on the label or ask at the yarn shop).

I used 'reclaimed' yarn on this, so the texture was uneven.


Using 6mm needles, CO 88 st.
Work 2x2 rib until work measures 10cms.
Knit until work measures 20cms.
Place a marker.

Work the crown.
K9, K2tog. Repeat to marker.
Knit the next and every second round.
K8, K2tog, repeat to marker.
Knit.
K7, K2tog, repeat to marker.
Knit.
K6, K2tog, repeat to marker.
Knit.
K5, K2tog, repeat to marker.
Knit.
K4, K2tog, repeat to marker.
Knit.
K3, K2tog, repeat to marker.
Knit.
K2, K2tog, repeat to marker.
Knit.
K1, K2tog, repeat to marker.
Knit.
K2tog, repeat to marker.

There should be 8 stitches remaining, cut the working yarn, leaving a 20cm tail.
Thread the working yarn onto a tapestry/darning needle and thread the stitches onto it.
Pull tight and weave in all the ends.
