This slouchy bobble hat is just what your little one needs for the upcoming winter. Knit in the round with stranded colorwork, this warm ad make this a cozy and warm hat for any child. The hat is worked in the round from the bottom up in garter stitch with short row shapping on the ear flaps before graduating into two colour fair isle and finally, central double decreases in stranded work to shape the crown. The fox’s features are added afterwards in duplicate stitch. Make a pompom to finish the hat. The hat is knit with Studio Donegal Donegal Aran Tweed (4-ply) (100% Wool; 88 yards [80 meters]/50 grams): using one ball of Báinín (MC), 1 ball of Fire (CC1), and a small amount of black for the features which are worked in duplicate stitch.
To make a larger fitting hat, just bump up your knitting needle size.
The hat is published in October’s edition of I Like Knitting.
