Making Tracks Hat Knitting Pattern

On Sale
Added to cart

This colourwork beanie hat with its simple but bold design is surprisingly simple to knit! The design as written uses only 2 colours, making this project particularly suitable for someone trying out colourwork for the first time or even more experienced knitters looking for a simple colourwork design that is quick to knit up. This hat is knitted in the round so no seaming is required.

Suggested yarn: 5ply/sport weight yarn or heavy fingering weight yarn. I used Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino.

Quantities: No more than 125m in each shade

Suggested needles: Size 3mm(US2-3), 3.25mm (US3) circular needle or DPNs. If you find your tension tightens for the fairisle you can go up to a 3.50mm (US4) needle.

Large blunt sewing needle

Pom pom maker (optional)

Stitch marker

Gauge: 25sts and 32 rows over 10cm (4”) in stocking stitch using 3.25mm (US3) needles

Sizes: Child, Teen/Adult (S), Adult (M), Adult (L)

Actual finished circumference: 43/46/48.5/53cm (17/18/19/21 inches) – height 18/21/23/25.5cm (7/8¼/9/10 inches). These sizes are the “unstretched” sizes – the hat will stretch to fit average size heads in the age range.
