The Perfect Knit Souch

By: Carrissa Knox



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




Cast on 80 sts.

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



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.
