Chinchilla Chemo Hat

by Dawn Adcock

 

Supplies

One skein Chinchilla yarn (by Berroco, color shown is #5870 Fantasia Mix)
Size 9 needles: circular 16, plus double pointed set         

Gauge: about 3 sts = 1

 

Instructions

Brim: On circular needles: Cast on 60 sts, leaving tail long enough to sew up cuff seam later.

 Knit (back and forth, not in the round yet) 6 rows, for 3 garter ridges

Body: Switch to knitting in the round by joining the work, and work stockinette stitch (knit every round when knitting in the round) until piece measures 7 total from the cast on edge.  (approx 20 rounds after the garter edge).

Shape top: (switch to double point needles when work becomes too small for circular needle)

*K4, K2tog*, rep around (decreasing 10 sts, 50 total remain)

            Knit one round plain

            *K3, K2tog*, rep around (40 sts remain)

            Knit one round plain

            *K2, K2tog*, rep around (30 sts remain)

            Knit one round plain

            *K1, K2tog*, rep around (20 sts remain)

            Knit one round plain

            *K2tog*, rep around (10 sts remain)

            *K2tog*, rep around (5 sts remain)

Cut yarn, leaving tail long enough to go through final 5 sts, and secure sts, and weave in tail.  Use cast on tail to sew up the short seam of the garter edge cuff, then turn cuff up for bottom edge.
