Yarny Goodness!

Another super exciting fun knitblog

  • November Knit Goals

    I'm prone to being a scatterbrain, so I try to make a short list of things to accomplish each month (lest I have 27 different non matching socks).

    Same as last month: Sleep more. Study more. Knit more. Sleep more.

Herringbone Hat


US 7, 16″ circular, set of double pointed needles


Color 1: Sublime Cashmere Silk Aran, Color 13 (Ebony) – 1 ball

Color 2: Lorna’s Laces Shepard Worsted, Iris Garden – 1/2 ball


20 stitches x 25 rows = 4 x 4 inches


21 inches, stretches to fit my 23″ noggin, quite snuggly

9 Stitch markers


Using Color 2, cast on 108 stitches. Place marker and join in round, being careful not to twist. Work in corrugated K2, P2 ribbing for one inch (knit with Color 1, purl with Color 2). Switch to stockinette and work rounds 1-4 of chart until hat is approximately 7 inches from cast on edge, or desired length. Then, work rounds 1-3 once more, placing a marker every 12 stitches, and begin decreases as indicted on chart.

When 18 stitches remain, break yarn, and thread through remaining stitches, cinch tightly and weave in ends. Block and enjoy (and drop me a line)!
