So, I did it! I ventured into the knitting world of items with shape. If you remember from the Knit Throw Pattern, I have been knitting for a few years, self-taught, but have only knit flat items as I was otherwise intimidated by the rest. Well, I’ve become such an advanced crocheter, I needed something more challenging, so I decided to try knitting hats and have been quite successful. And they say practice makes perfect, so I have been knitting up a storm of hats of all kinds of knit texture variations. I have even knitted cables! As I have been searching around for inspiration on my next project, I have seen these hats around that looked almost like beehives. After closer inspection I realized they were quite simple to make as it was just a few rows of knit stitch, then a few rows of purl stitches, repeated until you had the length of your hat. I decided to write out this pattern and share it with the rest of you. I hope you enjoy it! And happy knitting!
