Hat 3: Knit for Peace


Hat 3: Peace Hat

Hat 3: Peace Hat

Today I helped change the world! At least, I assume so. That’s what the hippies tell me. I went to a rally in Swansea to stand up for freedom, etc etc – the Welsh Defence League (kind of like the Welsh BNP) were planning to gather there, so I was part of a very strong group of people who set up before they got there. There was much chanting and waving of banners, and it was considered a success by all involved. Hurrah! Photos below for those of you who’re interested. 🙂

Okay, I admit it, I am a hippie. And here is the proof. As you can see, Rosa is supporting the peace mission too by glaring and suchlike.

Peace Pattern

Cast on 29 stitches.

Rows 1-4: Knit in base colour.

Row 5: Purl 10, start knitting chart, purl 10.

Row 6-16: Knit 10 (even rows) or purl 10 (odd rows), knit the chart, and then finish the row.

Row 17-19: Stockinette in base colour only.

Row 20: K2tog all the way along, and ignore the last stitch. (15 stitches.)

Row 21: P2tog all the way along, and ignore the last stitch. (8 stitches.)

Thread the tail through the remaining stitches as usual and pull tight. Sew down the back of the hat. Add bobble to taste.
