This is a pattern I found through Ravelry.com, I then modified it to be knit flat, rather than in the round.
Here is the original pattern: Boyfriend Hat
Here is how I do it:
I have been using Caron Simply Soft in various colors, because it’s simple, and soft.
Needles: 2 straight size US8
Both because it’s good pattern and because it illustrates how un-intimidating circular needles are. Also, if someone doesn’t want to or can’t use circular needles, here’s the secret!
Edit: I TOTALLY mis-wrote the beginning instructions for this hat. I remember someone messaging me asking about it (I am not sure who) And at the time I kept thinking “wha?!” Well, now that My brain is back and I could sit down and look at this I realized the error!
This is what the bulk of the hat should be worked as…
Row 1: *K3, P2*
Row 2: *K2, P3*
@knitsophrenic Also sent me a message about the error and again my mind went “huh?” (also tumblr wouldn’t let me respond at the time)
Anyways… Here is the fix! I am sure most of you figured this out, if you didn’t and you were confused I apologize! And so does my 5 month old son.
