Opposites Attract hat
An easy to make hat with an eye-catching slip stitch pattern in two contrasting colours. Knit in the round, from the bottom up.
Thanks to a variety of sizes, this hat can be worn by everyone from child to adult.
The pattern for the matching cowl is available separately in my store
S (M, L), 16.5“ (18“, 20.5“), 42 cm (46 cm, 52 cm)
Measurements are unstretched, the size M hat fits my 21“ / 53 cm head, as shown in the pictures.
DK weight yarn in two colours
110 yds / 120 m of main colour (red in the sample)
60 yds / 65 m of contrast colour (black in the sample)
3.5 mm / size 4 dpns or circular knitting needle, whatever your preferred method for knitting in the round is.
25 sts and 34 rows = 4“ x 4“ / 10 cm x 10 cm in stockinette stitch
The pattern might look difficult at first glance, but it isn’t really. Once you have set up the pattern, you will most likely be able to work on this without referring to the pattern all the time, because the colours align in a very obvious way which will make knitting rather intuitive.
