Snow, snow, snow… It’s an indispensable part of my everyday life and thus became my source of inspiration when I decided to knit a cute little hat for my one and only niece who lives in Greece!! 🙂 The knitting technique I used is honestly a piece of cake BUT… what might be a bit tricky and a quite long process is the snowflake pattern. Therefore, I used a highlight marker in order to facilitate my knitting row by row.
WHAT YOU NEED:
100g of light-green soft yarn (I used wool with a bit of acrylic)
50g of white soft yarn
6mm –sized circular knitting needles
A pair of scissors
A tapestry needle
Measure the head’s circumference, divide by 20 and multiple with 16. What you get is the number of stitches you need to cast on. Here is the formula Number of stitches= (Circumference/20) x 16. Work a 2×2 rib stitch for 8 rows.
Knit the rest of your rows according to the pattern by switching to the white yarn where needed.
When you get the desired size, start decreasing by knitting two stitches together every 8 stitches. When you end up with maximum 12 stitches bind off and finish off your project with a cute fluffy pom pom on top. Done! 😉
Have a wonderful weekend!
