Targa Hat knitting pattern
This listing is for a digital PDF download of the knitting pattern and does not include the materials to make the item.
The Sirita hat is all about combining scrap yarns for rich texture. Mix and match different fibres, varying yarn weights and make it your own! The hat features a cosy double brim and surprisingly simple colourwork, and is worked from the bottom up in the round.
Sizes: 1 (2, 3)
Finished circumference: 46 (50, 54) cm / 18 (19.5, 21.25)”
Height: 18.5 (20, 21.5) cm / 7.5 (8, 8.5)”
As this pattern is designed to use up scraps, yarn requirements are very approximate.
You will need roughly DK-weight yarn in at least two colours. You can use multiple colours to make up Yarns A and B; these designators are simply used to make instructions clear when more than one yarn is used per round. The bluey grey sample shown used a total of six different yarns.
As the aim is for a textural effect, you can include sport- and worsted-weight yarns as well, or hold together two strands of lighter-weight yarn. You can get away with a bit less of Yarn A if you omit the double brim.
Yarn A: At least 30 (35, 40) g
Yarn B: At least 20 (20, 35) g
