- Sizing from child to large adult
- Both hat and mitts included
- Tips on adjusting for a beanie fit
Materials you need at home:
- Worsted weight yarn: 100g (200 yards) each of two contrasting colours
- Needles for knitting in the round: US sizes 4, 6 & 7 (3.5mm, 4mm and 4.5mm)
- Stitch markers
Mütze is German for hat, but in some Swiss German dialects, a Mutzi is a kiss. Rows of kisses embellish this design, which blends two colours of yarn in deceptively simple slipped-stitch patterning.
Two skeins of worsted yarn will give you a generously slouchy hat with enough left over for matching mitts – make them for yourself or for whoever you like to kiss! Instructions include a full range of sizes, plus tips on adjusting for a beanie fit (as shown in the child’s sample).
Thanks to Kate Atherley for tech editing, and to my very helpful testers.
I've been designing my own knitted creations since high school, and more recently put my publishing skills (from a career in newspaper and magazine production) to work in pattern writing. I love to create fresh, beautiful designs with thoughtful details and skill-boosting techniques that help knitters to expand their horizons.
