Classic Elite Yarns



Issue 419 – Sideways Garter Hat

Now that November is here, there's a definite chill in the air and a wool hat comes in handy to keep warm when outdoors. This week's pattern, a quick-to-knit garter stitch hat worked side to side in Big Liberty Wool, is sure to keep your ears warm. Short rows are worked to shape the crown. If you've never worked short rows before, this hat is a good introduction. It is not necessary to wrap and turn when working short rows in Garter stitch since the turning points will be hidden in the valleys between the ridges.
