you'll need
  • any weight yarn, 80-300 yards / 70-275 meters
  • a set of double points and a 16" circular needle, sized to work with your yarn
  • 2 buttons if you choose to make a buttoning brim

This swirly hat can be made with any weight yarn, slouchy or not, custom sized to your head, with buttons or without, fitted or beret style, with a pointed top or not. With all these options, you can make it over and over, use up hat-quantity yarn leftovers, or random single skeins, making a totally different hat each time.

It’s constructed from the top down, twisted stitches swirling outwards with yarn over increases, until the hat body is the appropriate width and height for a custom fit. The gauge is measured directly on the hat once enough fabric has been knit, and measurements/stitch counts are then calculated using that gauge.

The brim is knit on sideways around the hat bottom, with decreases attaching it to the hat and essentially binding off the hat body stitches at the same time.

The brim section is charted and written.
