Pattern: Tea-Stained Sheep Hat

So I found some neat yarn on sale with no idea what I would do with it, but a need to buy it when I saw it. Sounds familiar eh?

I needed a new, warmer winter hat and I thought Pooch would make a wonderfully warm hatband. I had enough Softee Chunky left over from the Anthro sweater and they were a perfect match.

So viola! After a bit of swatching and experimenting the Tea-Stained Sheep Hat was born.

Materials:
Yarn: Hatband, Patons Pooch, Wooly. Hat Crown, Bernat Softee Chunky, Natural
Needles: Hat Band #10.5, Hat Crown #10
Extras: Tapestry Needle for seaming and weaving in ends

Gauge: Bernat Softee Chunky: 4.5 rows per inch: 3 stitches per inch

Flat Knit Instructions:

Knitting the Hatband
CO 60 stitches

With Patons Pooch and #10.5 needles, knit in Garter Stitch for 3”.

Knit last row of hatband with #10 needles to prep for hat crown and new yarn.

Cut yarn leaving a 4-5” tail for seaming later.

Just so beginners don''t get confused, you definitely need to leave an end of much more than 4-5 inches to be able to sew the seam. You should leave an 8-10" tail after ending each color for seaming. Better yet, knit the cap on DPNs to eliminate seaming. Just remember to achieve garter stitch in the round it''s K 1 round, P 1 round, and for stockinette it''s knit every round.
