Braided hat pattern
I'm a new knitter (began in October), and very new to writing down my directions. I'm pretty sure these are accurate. Please let me know if you find an error.



Knit in the round on size 8 16-inch circular needles and DPNs for decreasing.

SKPO=slip, knit, pass slipped stitch over

Cast on a multiple of 11 stitches which is also an even number. (i believe the hat shown used 110, but beware that I knit *very* tightly. Normal knitters could easily get away with 88 stitches cast on. )

Work the band in 2x2 rib knit for about 1 inch. (You'll notice my rib knit is 3x3. This was a mistake. Don't do that. This hat also has a row of purled stitches. You can either do that or not. )


1st row: *P1,K9, P1, repeat from * to end
2nd row: same as for 1
3rd row: *P1, hold three stitches forward, K3, knit 3 from cable, K3, P1, repeat from, * to end
4th 5th 6th: same as row 1
7th row: *P1, K3, hold 3 stitches to back, K3, k3 from cable, P1, repeat from, * to end
8th row: same as row 1
Rows 1-8 form pattern. Repeat for desired length. (until hat covers ears and reaches the crown of your head.)

Decrease rows:
Work two rounds of: (p1,k9, p1) around.
Next round, decrease within each cable: P1, hold three stitches forward, K1 k2tog, from held stitches k1 k2tog, K1 skpo, P1, repeat from, *
Knit 2 rnds of: (p1, k6, p1) around.
Decrease round: (p1, k2tog, hold 2 stitches to back, k2tog, on held stitches, skpo, p1) around
Work one round of (p1, skpo, k1, p1)
Work one rnd: (p1, k2, p1) around.
Decrease rnd: (skpo, p2tog) around.
Last rnd: (k1, p1) around, cut yarn and pull through the remaining stitches
Sew a pompom on the top.

That is a beautiful hat and I'd love to try it out! What kind of yarn would you recommend? How many skeins would it take?

wow thanks you guys

I used a Merino superwash--I like Mission Falls. Those skeins are something like 85 yards/skein and I used just less than 2 skeins I think.
