Starting the New Year right with a free pattern “Sweet & Simple”

It’s been so unseasonably warm here I haven’t worked on many cold weather knits for the family.  Yesterday it started snowing and we realized Miss Evie needed a hat. With 3 little ones, Erika prefers something easy care as in, throw it in the washer and dryer.  So we chose Premier Yarns Serenity Chunky Weight in what else but “Candy Pink”

Sweet & Simple- Evie’s Hat

Jan Wips 007

Materials Needed:

Needles size 6 for the brim

10 for the body

1 stitch marker

95-100 yds. of chunky yarn

With smaller needles CO 62, place marker and join in the round
Knit 4 rounds of 1X1 ribbing
Switch to larger needles & knit till (at least 6.5 inches from brim ) about 3 yards remain & kitchner the top closed

Grab a deck of cards and wrap about 20 times, make a tassel & attach to hat.

Be creative, grab your scraps and stripe it, add pom-pom’s or braids
