Shawn’s Hat KnitKit

$35.00$55.50


Back by popular demand, here’s our second collaboration with Knit a Bit of Whimsy!

Shawn’s Hat is simple enough for those who like ‘plain’ but easily jazzed up with a variegated color combination.  And it’s a great project on which to learn the double-knitting technique, where you knit two layers of fabric at once for a potentially reversible design.

Size:  Adult (20″ circumference), child (17″), and infant (15″)

Yarn:  2 skeins of Morehouse Merino 3-strand

Needles:  US #7 DPNs (you might also like to use a 16″ circular until stitch decreases warrant the DPNs, or a long circular needle for Magic Loop)

Our version is knit in dark grey with geranium.
