Kyukker unisex Hat Knitting Pattern
Kyukker hat is suitable for all ages, male and female. The ear pieces are optional. The short section of rib helps give a snug fit.
Instructions are given for 4 sizes - to fit between 18 inch/ 46 cm and 26 inch/ 66cm diameter. Instructions are written and charted.
4 sizes: to fit head circumference 18-20 / 20-22 / 22-24 / 23-26 inches
Shetland jumper weight yarn:
either Spindrift from Jamieson's of Shetland or 2 ply jumper weight.from Jamieson & Smith.
Three background and three contrast colours. The smallest hat needs approximately 20g for background and approximately 18g for contrast colours. The largest size needs approximately 35g for background and approximately 21g for contrast.
3.25mm circular or double pointed needles are needed. As stitch numbers decrease at the crown a circular needle might be difficult so short double pointed needles will be easier to use.
In addition to yarn and needles mentioned above, you need a blunt needle for finishing off, scissors and something to block the hat over (a plastic cylindrical food storage container of the appropriate diameter is ideal).
