doube hat




Ever felt that the hat you have knitted is draftee? Here is one solution, you make two hats in one piece and then fold one into the other thus it looks as it is only one hat.
Be sure that you have fasten of every loose thread before you finish of since you can´t reach the inside.



My gauge is 19 stitches per 10 cm. And I have used 4mm needles.  

To make sure your hat fits just your head make a test piece so you see how many stitches there is per 10 cm and then measure your head and calculate the amount of stitches you need. But remember that the structure patterns is divided by four. 

You start with the inner hat.

1: cast on 6 stitches
2: knit to in every stitch (12)
3: knit one, knit to in one (18)
4: knit two, knit to in one (24)
5: knit three, knit to in one (30)
6: knit four, knit to in one (36)
7: knit five, knit to in one (42)
8: knit six, knit to in one (48)
9: knit seven, knit to in one (54)
10: knit eight, knit to in one (60)

Now you will increase in the same way every other round until you gain 96 stitches. 

Knit until you have reached 12 cm

Now you will knit two and pull 2, in 3 cm.

Now you pull 2 and knit 2 thus pulling over the knitted stiches and knit over the pulled stitches. This makes it easier to fold the hat into one.

Then knit over knitted stitches and pull over pulled stitches in 3 cm.

The structure pattern I have used is divided by four. V stands for knitted stitches and X for pulled stitches.

When you have reached 14 cm (measure only the structure part) you will start to decrease stitches. As you have noticed the second hat is two centimetres longer than the first one this is because it has to be bigger so that the first one will fit inside. 

You decrease every other round

Knit 14, knit two together
Knit
Knit 13, knit two together

Continue until you have 60 stitches then you decrease every round.
