Pattern by Lee Meredith

I love designing hats because there’s so much room for fun with construction and shape, as long as it fits on a head! With this design, I wanted to keep to traditional hat shapes, but play with direction, and make it fun and easy to knit, perhaps looking more complex than it actually is.

When making this hat, in either the fitted cloche stockinette style, or the oversized slouchy garter stitch style, you’ll never break your yarn, you’ll never pick up stitches, and when you’re done, you’re done, no sewing or any other finishing steps! It’s a bit like knitting magic (but really, it’s just simple short rows, increases, and decreases).

Another thing that makes this hat lots of fun to knit is that the first section is most of the piece, and it’s a simple 2-row repeat pattern (once you get it down, it’s easy TV knitting) — when that section is over, the second and third sections fly by so darn quickly, and you’re done!

One final thing I love about this design is that it starts sideways around the head, so if you want to modify it to any yarn weight and size it custom fit to your head, you just try it on as you knit, to get a perfect fit — full detailed modification notes are included at the end!


Needles: For cloche/stockinette style: Size 7 (4.5 mm): any length cir and dpn; Size 5 (3.75 mm): any length cir.
For slouchy/garter stitch style: Size 10 (6 mm): any length cir and dpn; Size 8 (5 mm): any length cir.
