Save this pattern to your Ravelry cue
It’s October! Which means a whole year has passed since I started this blog! How crazy fast time goes by! And I’m mostly proud of the fact that I kept with it, it’s grown and I’ve learned a lot through it.
To celebrate, I have been thinking up and knitting up a few different pattern ideas, until I landed on this simple but fun chevron hat, great for the beginning of the fall, a quick knit made will bulky yarn. A perfect gift too if you want to start stocking up on Knitmas gifts. It was originally thought for black and white but you have the option of trying any combination of colors, and it’s guaranteed to always look good.
This hat is knit in the yarn, using a color work chart. Because of its simplicity and because you will be using bulky yarn, I recommend this pattern for your first color work if you’ve never tried it before.
I recommend using a technique for carrying the floats in the wrong side, there are a few that can work. This will not only keep the back of your hat looking nice and organized, but help you keep an even tension throughout the hat. One way is to carry the floats by wrapping the floats to each other every inch or so (this video explains it much better) This is one of the most standard ways of doing it.
It comes in 4 sizes: Baby, Child, Adult Small (for women) and Adult Large (for men), everyone can get one!
You can use any kind of Bulky (6) weight yarn, I recommend using my always go to, Lion Brand Yarn Wool-Ease Thick and Quick. It’s always in my stash, which makes it even easier to just grab a couple of skeins and start a new chevron hat. You will only need one skein of each color for this pattern.
Final hat size, allow for up to 2 inches of stretching
