Alli-san Hat

I owe my friend Allison a favor for her doing the message at Worship Team instead of me.  I was originally going to make her cookies, but I think knitting is much more fun.  I did mess up on one row, but I was watching Black Butler!  I think that's a good reason.  Please tell me you didn't even notice it until I pointed it out and, in fact, it helped add visual interest to the hat.  Anyway, this is what I came up with.




Materials:
-US size 7 circular or double-pointed needles
-1 skein Caron Simply Soft Yarn in Blue Mint
-Tapestry needle

Gauge:
10 sts x 10 rows = 3 in x 1.5 in

Abbreviations:
CO- cast on
BO- bind off
st(s)- stitch(es)
k- knit
p- purl
sl- slip
wrn- yarn around the needle
psso- pass slipped stitch over
k2tog- knit 2 together

Making the hat:
Cast on 60 sts.
Join in the round.
Work in k1, p1 rib for 5 rows.
Row 6:  * k3, sl 1 purlwise, k1, wrn, psso the k1 and the m1 * repeat from * to end
Row 7:  k all sts
Repeat rows 6 and 7 until work measures 7.5 in.
Next 2 rows:  k2tog all sts.
BO all sts.

Finishing:
Sew up the top of the hat.
Weave in your ends like a good little knitter!
All done!

    1. I means 'make one' or in another way to say it you add a stitch in.

  4. M1 means to pick up and knit the bar in between the two sts. And as for the 100 sts, you should just k2tog until you have 20 sts left.

  10. I find that the instructions are a bit confusing. I have not seen the "wrn" - yarn around the needle before . Is it a yarn over knit wise or purl wise? I have been doing knit wise yarn over (YO). I have taken the meaning of the ml as for the "WRN" as the extra stitch.
