View Full Version : Kid Nation Hat

I don't watch this show regularly, but this week there were two kids wearing black & grey knit hats. Anybody else catch that or have an idea where to find a pattern?

I can't help with the pattern, but I did see them. There've been a few knit hats on that series that I figure someone will want to re-create.

Watch the 'Council announces Talent Show' and 'Gold Star' videos to see glimpses of the hats:

There's a pretty good still photo of the hat here (http://www.cbs.com/primetime/kid_nation/photos.php?mode=kids&kid=13&photo=kn_102_1057_640). I've found the stitch pattern in the Vogue Stitchionary (Vol. 2: Cables) ...it looks a lot like entrelac but it's a cable pattern.

I have to say I'm stunned that no one has replicated the hat yet :roflhard: ...if a pattern doesn't surface soon maybe I'll take a stab at it. :)

I too am looking for this pattern, I love these hats!
Elsewhere on the web I've seen that some people felt the stitch pattern was this Woven Cable Stitch: http://www.kidsknits.com/woven_headband.htm

Yup -- that's the stitch! I did start to swatch it, and can I just say, colorwork and cables are NOT for me. If I'm hating the swatch this much, I can't imagine that I'd enjoy knitting a whole hat. ;)
