The Perfect Knit Souch

By: Carrissa Knox

 

Materials:

No.11-8.00mm circular knitting needle (16 in)

Bulky weight yarn-144 yd/132 m

(Pictured: Lion Brand Yarn/Tweed Stripes, Woodlands)

Yarn needle

Elastic

 

Pattern:

Cast on 80 sts.

*k1, p1 all the way around. *Repeat until the hat reaches 12 inches in length.

 

Finish:

Cut the yarn end, leaving enough for sewing. Using the yarn needle, draw the yarn through the loops on the knitting needle and pull tight to synch the end closed. Tie off and tuck in the end.

Using the elastic and yarn needle, weave the elastic through the stitches around the opening of the hat. Pull as tightly as you'd like before tying off.

About how much yarn does this pattern use? What size elastic do you recommend?

Judeline said...

Will this pattern work only with bulky weight yarn? Can I use a lighter weight? Thanks.

Can you make this pattern using straight knitting needles ? If yes , what size and how many cast on stitches !

I have made 2 of these with straight needles. You just sew it together using the mattress stich.

I'm about to start making this hat now, but I'm nervous that the needles are too small! I did size 11, 16 inches, and the needles don't even fit around my head! Is that the point of the elastic?

Hello! This is a great pattern but I am unsure what you mean by elastic and how are we suppose to use it after we finish weaving in the loose end? Thank you!

I do not see this question answered anywhere. How many skeins of yarn per hat? I see others have asked, but I do not see a response. I'm looking at making these for a few people and need to know how many skeins to purchase per hat.

Hello! Does anyone know how much yardage is needed for this pattern? Please and thank you. Love this hat!

The pattern indicates 144 yds of bulky weight yarn. The number of yards will be on the label of the skein.

Hi! I'm just learning to knit again. When I saw your pattern, it looks easy for me to follow. I was wondering if I need to cast off when I get to the first stitch? Thanks!
