“Leaves” Hat Pattern

This pattern was worked to go with the “Leaves” fingerless gloves and the “Leaves” scarf.

Materials:
1 skein aran or worsted weight yarn.
Needles:
size US6 (4.00 mm) set of six double pointed needles (for the decrease) and 16-inch or 24-inch circular needle and size US5 (3.75 mm) set of double pointed needles or 16-inch or 24-inch circular needle (for the hat band).
1 row marker (and 4 stitch markers if desired).

Note: The pattern makes five “leaves” around the circumference of the hat. You may wish to place markers between each “leaf” to help you keep track.

Ribbed Hat Band:
On size US 5 (3.75 nn) needles, cast on 92 stitches
Work in k1, p1 ribbing for 2-1/2 inches.
Change to size US 6 (4.00 mm) needles

Nine-Bladed Pinwheel Shawl

2013_02_28-1Nine-Bladed Pinwheel Shawl

2012_01_10-2Materials:

  • A set of 4 double pointed needles (DPN) the same size as the circular needles.
  • Circular needles, all the same needle size, in 16, 29, 36 and 48-inch lengths.
  • Stitch Markers:  1 marker of one color and 8 markers of another color.
  • Yarn of choice.

Gauge: This pattern doesn’t have a gauge as it doesn’t matter what size needles you use or what size yarn you use. You just keep working the pattern until the piece is as big as you want it.  Fingering yarn on large needles will make it thin and lacy.  Bulky yarn on smaller gauge needles will make it dense, thick and bulky.  Be creative. It will take about 6-8 skeins of knitting worsted weight yarn.

Pattern:
Cast on 6 stitches onto 3 double pointed needles (DPNs), 2 stitches per needle.
Working in round:
Row 1: Knit 6 and place row marker. (Once you’ve knit the first row, shift the stitches around on your needles so your row marker is in between two stitches on a needle and won’t fall off.)
Row 2: Knit 2, yo, knit 2, yo, knit 2, yo. (9 stitches) (Note:  For counting purposes, a yo counts as 1 stitch now and throughout.)
Row 3: Knit.
Row 4: *Knit 1, yo; repeat from  * 9 times. (18 stitches)
Row 5: Knit.
Row 6: *Knit 2, yo; repeat from * 9 times. (27 stitches)
Row 7: Knit.
Row 8: *Knit 3, yo; repeat from * 9 times.  (36 stitches)
Row 9: Knit.
Row 10: *Knit 4, yo, place stitch marker; repeat from * 8 times;  K4, yo, place the row marker.here. (54 stitches)
Row 11:  *K to marker, yo, slip marker to left needle;  repeat from*  9 times.
Repeat Row 11 until the shawl is as big as you want it to be.

Note: When DPNs start to get crowded with stitches, change to 16-inch circular needle, and keep changing to longer circular needles as necessary.

Edging Suggestions:

Simple Garter Stitch Edging:
1.  Purl
2.  Knit
Repeat rows 1 and 2 nine times, bind off.

Scalloped Edging:
Row 1: Knit, removing your markers as you come to them, leaving only the row marker.
Row 2: *ssk, k5, k2tog, yo; repeat from * around, omitting final yo.
Row 3: purl, working (p1, k1) in each yo.
Row 4: *ssk, k3, k2tog, (yo, k1) twice, yo; repeat from * around.
Row 5: purl.
Row 6: *ssk, k1, k2tog, (yo, k1) 5 times, yo; repeat from * around.
Row 7: *p3, k 11; repeat from * around.
