Keep Slipping Hat

In Hats, One skein projects, Patterns, Worsted weight yarn by Shannon


This hat & mitts combo is the perfect answer to the question: what to knit? It’s a soothing pattern and makes a comfy finished object. 

  • Finished Measurements: Small/medium (large/extra-large): 19.5 (21.5)”/49.5 (54.5) cm circumference unstretched; 8 (9)”/20.5 (23) cm from brim to tippy top.
  • Yarn: approximately 140 (160) yards/129 (147) m worsted-weight yarn. I used Knitted Wit Targhee Worsted in Coral Cove (pink/brown set), Purple Dragon (yellow/purple set), and Juniper (green set).
  • Needles: US7/4.5mm needle for smallish- circumference knitting, or size needed to get gauge. I recommend either using a 16″/ 40 cm circular plus a set of dpns for the crown shaping, or a 32″/60 cm or 40″/80 cm circular for magic loop.
  • Notions: Tapestry needle, stitch marker.
  • Gauge: 14 sts & 21 Rs = 4″/10 cm in garter stitch, worked flat, measured after blocking.
