Getting two for one is always a great deal! On one side this hat is as simple as it gets - it's my Basic Hat. Turn it inside out, and you have a dainty lace hat on a solid background. The bonus? Two layers of wool make it amazingly warm!

Materials:

  • 2 balls Elann.com Peruvian Highland Bulky in shade 0500 Black, or about 110 yards of bulky yarn of your choice
  • 16 inch size 10 US (6 mm) circular needle
  • 1 set size 10 US (6 mm) double-pointed needles, or long circular for magic loop
  • 1 ball Elann.com Peruvian Baby Cashmere in shade 0100 Parchment, or about 80 yards of fingering weight yarn of your choice
  • stitch marker
  • 16 inch size 3 US (3.25 mm) circular needle
  • 1 set size 3 US (3.25 mm) double-pointed needles, or long circular for magic loop
  • Scissors, tape measure, yarn needle

Gauge:

Basic Hat: 3.5 stitches to 1 inch in Stockinette Stitch in the round.

Lace Hat: About 6 stitches to 1 inch in Spider Lace pattern - gauge is not crucial, as lace will stretch to fit the shape of the Basic Hat.

Size:

Finished hat circumference is 20 inches, which will fit most adults

Sample knit by Eileen Casey

Knit the Hat:

  1. First, make the Basic Hat in bulky yarn.
  2. Turn hat inside out, and on wrong side, using the lace weight yarn and size 3 circular needle, pick up stitches in the purl "bumps" along first round after ribbing. Pick up 3 stitches in every 2 of the bulky, that is, pick up 1 in first stitch (lower bump), pick up 2 in next stitch (lower and adjacent upper bump), pick up 1 in next stitch (lower bump), etc. You will have 108 stitches.
