Two Hats (and Cowls) Are Better Than One
Use one Scheepjes Whirl to make two lovely hat and cowl sets. One set has simple raised (post) stitches and the other has raised (post) stitches and lace.
The shade in the sample is Night Time Bubbles.
The Plain Hat is a simple beanie shape. The Fancy Hat has a slightly slouchy shape, with decreases before the brim for a neat fit.
Suitable for adventurous beginners up, worked in rounds with no seaming. The same size hat fits my 9 year old, my teen and me, with the fit being slouchier on the younger child.
Measurements: Plain Hat: brim 24.5cm/9.5”, height 19cm/7.5” Plain Cowl: width 28cm/11”, height 26cm/10.25” Fancy Hat: brim 23cm/9”, height 19cm/7.5” Fancy Cowl: width 28cm/11”, height 22cm/8.5”
Gauge after working the first 6 rounds of each hat is 4cm/1.5” measured from centre to edge. The gauge is less important for the cowl - check that it slips over the head after working the initial ch.
Suitable for any 4ply yarn, The weight of yarn used for each piece is: Plain Hat 36g Plain Cowl 70g Fancy Hat 48g Fancy Cowl 64g
Either set would be beautiful made from a skein of hand dyed sock weight yarn - just make the hat first and use the remainder of the yarn for the cowl.
