Check it out, I have found a new favourite hat pattern! It is the spiral. Here it is for your knitting pleasure. The observant among you will notice that I have 8 days to knit 21 hats. My shoulder is still very painful. I may cry.
Note: yo = yarnover. k2tog = knit two stitches together. ssk = slip one, knit one, pass slipped stitch over and off needle. (It’s like a decrease slanting to the left.)
Cast on 28 stitches. K 3 rows.
Row 4: K3, yo, ssk. Repeat until the end of the round.
Row 5: P.
Row 6: K1, [yo, ssk, k3] 6 times, k3.
Row 7: P.
Keep doing this. You should have 28 stitches on every row throughout. Each knit row, knit the stitch above the hole/yarnover, then do a yarnover, then ssk.
When you’ve done 14 rows of lace, k2tog on each knit row until you’ve got 7 stitches, and then thread the tail through the remaining stitches and use it to sew up the side of the hat. Done!
