I chose pink and grey because I had just bought some soft Kartopu yarn in those colours and thought it would be perfect for the hats.

You can knit in all one colour or try out using different colours, going for neutrals, brights or a combination of both.

Made in a traditional mariner’s style, these hats have an added pom pom, which can be added or not depending on your personal preference.

I made the hat using Kartopu Melange Wool in grey and pink and knit on size 6 mm (US 10) 16″ circular needles.

This yarn can be substituted with any medium yarn, including worsted or aran.

You will need approx 2 skeins (100g each) to make the hats.

Needles

  • Set of 6mm (US 10) 16′′ circular knitting needles

Please note – you may have to change your needles for the decreases of the hat if working on the circulars becomes too tight.

If you do not have those, you could use a 60cm/24″ cable and use the magic loop technique.
