PATTERN DETAILS

This slouchy hat uses your lovely skein of sock yarn that you don't want to turn into socks. The world wouldn't be able to see the gorgeous colors if they were hidden under pants or in boots! The Midas Hat is provisionally cast on and knit in the round in stockinette, which, I think, really showcases beautifully dyed yarn. It features a folded brim to maintain the clean, all stockinette stitch without a rolled edge. Plus the brim is wide enough to cover your ears and keep them warm. It uses an Elizabeth Zimmerman technique that helps keep the brim from flaring out, which can happen with folded hems. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knit in the round, folded hem GAUGE 26 stitches and 40 rows = 4 inches in St st in the round SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS One size - average adult PREFERRED BRAND/YARN The Woolen Rabbit Pearl COLORWAY Midas Touch

I live in a small town in Maine with my husband and four boys. I was taught to knit by my mother in law after my first child was born. I was very slow for the first few years, but once I discovered Ravelry a whole new world opened up for me. Knitting became my passion. I have moved on to designing and just love the creative outlet it provides.
