Knitting Pattern for Leftover Yarn Knitted Hats
Scrap Yarn Hats
Ugly Hat Syndrome
I can't help but want to knit hats this year. My teenage kids have each claimed several hats for themselves, with my son selecting the ugliest ones to wear. The rest of the hats are being picked out by their friends. It's almost become an ugly hat trend at their school. These hats are being knitted with leftover medium worsted weight yarn and the stripes barely match, but the results are cool looking hats. I'm told that the uglier they are the better.
Knit Hat Pattern
Size 9 knitting needles.
Yarn: different colors in medium weight 4 yarn.
Cast on 70, leaving a long tail, about 12 inches.
For the hat brim: *knit, purl* across for 6 rows.
For the pattern, knit 2 rows one color, knit 2 rows a different color. Carry yarn not in use up the back.
Continue the 2 row pattern until the hat length is 9 inches. Bind off and leave a long tail, about 12 inches.
Fold hat in half, wrong side facing out, and sew up side, using the tail from the hat brim.
With bind off tail, weave it through the bind off stitches. Pull tight, like a drawstring bag, and knot top hole closed.
Weave in any extra pieces of yarn, turn right side and and wear with pride.
