I wish this was my hat.
I wish I had made this for myself because OH MAN is it ever cozy. But lucky for you it is super simple and super quick to make. Actually, while I was making this hat, I had visions of making another for myself but modifying the pattern slightly. That never happens! It is very rare, basically unheard of for me to reuse patterns. But with this one, I might just have to.
Thom Hat Pattern
-5mm/ US 8 - 16 inch circular needles,
-2 balls of worsted weight yarn held together.
Cast on 72 +1 and join first stitch to the last.
Continue in a 2x2 rib for 5 cm ( 2 inches). This is the brim of your hat.
Knit 2 rounds. (These rounds will not be seen in when finished, but allow for the brim of the hat to be rolled up and sit evenly consistently)
Continue in Moss stitch for about 20 cm (8 inches) or until hat reaches desired length. (This means that in total the hat would be at about 25 cm before continuing to next step)
Knit 2 together around.
pull yarn through remaining stitches and pull tightly to finish off.
Weave in all ends.
And there you have it, the Thom Hat. It is named for my favourite place to sit and knit in Winnipeg, Thom Bargen Coffee &Tea. If you are ever in the area, stop by for some great coffee and tea.
