Big Button Hat

I've had a re-wound skein of Rowan big wool in my stash for a while. I wasn't sure if I had a whole skein of this yarn, but then I used my Food Scale and I do have 100 g! I love having a scale in my kitchen, it makes it easy to make pasta dough, and it comes in handy for my knitting projects.



I fell in love with the big button hat knitting pattern as soon as I saw it. (To find the pattern, you will have to scroll down on the page.)

Even though I had a full skein of yarn, I was concerned that I would not have enough to finish the hat. I therefore kept careful track of the pattern and how many rows I had left:

  • K 7 garter rounds. Turn, bind off 6 sts (48 sts remaining) K till end of row. (this is the WS and part of the button flap)
  • Turn, knit across then join to knit in the round.
  • I knit 22 rows before I began the decreases *Originally I had only knit 18, but the hat was going to be too short. I ripped out some rows and added more before I began the decreases again.
  • I started the decreases with *K6, k2tog* across. I also added a K across row after the *K4, K2tog* and the *K3, K2tog* rows. Otherwise I followed the decreases as written.


This was a super fast and easy project, and was completed in one cozy afternoon. I hope that the woman who received this last Christmas enjoyed it!

After all of my concerns, I still had 20 g of wool remaining at the end. I haven't decided how I'm going to use this yet, but I have some ideas...

  1. Den åndbare åndedragsdragt fra Eatlyx af SMS-polypropylenstoffer

    meget åndbar, modstår også skadeligt støv og stænk,

    ifølge type 5 og 6. Det er derfor blødt og derfor meget velegnet til en lang række anvendelser, hvor brugeren af tøjet skal beskyttes, og miljøet ikke må forurenes af fibrene fra tøjet.

    Eatlyx har flade sømme overtrukket med en varmeforseglet strimmel i overensstemmelse med dekret af 7. marts 2013 om valg af personligt beskyttelsesudstyr, der anvendes til operationer, der involverer en risiko for eksponering for asbest Asbestovertræk Cat 3 Type 5/6
