So for (most of) the month of November, I decided I was going to knit a hat every day. The hats I am knitting are all my own designs, which has so far been super fun! This was my first “Hat-a-Day” effort, I hope you enjoy it!
1 ball Diamond Select Stonewash (60% Acrylic, 25% Cotton, 15% Wool, 100g/165m), 5.5mm 40cm circular needle, 6.5mm 40cm circular needle, 6.5mm DPNs (These needle sizes make a larger hat. If you have a smaller head, go down a size)
14 st = 10cm in stockinette on larger needles.
On 5.5 mm needles, cast on 66 stitches. Place marker and join to work in the round.
Work in 1×1 rib for 8 rounds. Switch to 6.5 mm needle.
Set up round: *K11, m1*, repeat from *to * to end of round.
