Vertical Stripe Hat

Grey & Black Vertical Stripe Hat
4mm needles
stripe pattern is 8 black and 20 grey (I held the grey behind the black stitches so the black bits are less stretchy and stand out nicely)
decrease is 20 evenly across row on only the grey stripes until only black left
this can be done either flat or in the round
  • cast on 140
  • 2" 2x3 rib in black
  • stocking stitch in pattern for 3"
  • begin decrease, this is row 1
  • continue decrease on rows 6, 11, 16, 21
  • K2tog or P2tog every stitch for next 3 rows
  • run yarn through and pull
This basic hat pattern works well for any coloring or pattern, although if you don't use fair isle technique it is much stretchier so cast on 120 for a ladies size and 140 for the mens.  Bobble is optional.
