Sugar Plum Hat

Finally! A finished object! 
I decided to take a break from my sweater that I've been pouring blood sweat and tears into, and make something small with some yarn that I've been dying to use. 

It only took me a day to make (probably because I have way too much time on my hands lateely...) but the first version was a little too short. So I frogged part of it this morning, made it longer, and added a pom pom. 



US 6 dpns

MC: Red Heart Classic in Eggshell

CC: Red Heart SuperSaver in Plum Pudding


CO - Cast On 

K - knit

st - stitch / sts - stitches

MC - main color

CC - contrasting color

CO 80 using MC (divide stitches evenly on 4 dpns)

Knit in Rib stitch for 1 1/2" (*K1, P1) repeat from *

Row 1: Knit in stockinette increasing 1 st at the beginning and end of every needle

Row 2: K

Row 3: same as Row 1

Row 4: Repeat Rows 1 & 2 in CC

Row 6: K in MC

Row 7: (eyelets) *YO, K2tog, K1. Repeat from *

Rows 9 & 10: K in CC

Row 11: K in MC 

Rows 12 - 22 : Knit Fair Isle Pattern

Row 23: K in MC

Rows 24-25: K in CC

Rows 26-28: (eyelets)Repeat Rows 6-8

Rows 29-30: K in CC

Row 31: Knit in MC for 1"

Begin Decreases: In MC dec 3 sts, every other row, at the beginning and end of each needle. (To decrease S1, K2tog, Psso) 4 times. 

Thread yarn through remaining stitches and pull through the top of hat. 

Make a pom pom with CC.

  1. what is the gauge of this hat? ive calculated and it cant possibly be 3 stitches to the inch.

    what is the multiple for the fair isle part?
    it is impossible to read the pattern off your side with the color being yellow, is there any chance that you can change the color?
