Bow hat [knitting pattern]

August 18, 2014

While browsing around online I came across this cute hat. I think the bow on top is a great alternative to a pom pom! I decided to switch up the design a bit by adding the wide ribbing. I hope you like it!

Row 1 (Wrong Side):
*Purl 3, knit 3; repeat from * to last 3 stitches, purl 3.
Row 2 (Right Side):

Repeat Rows 1 and 2 until piece measures 9 1/2 inches from beginning, ending with a wrong side row

    I love this hat! And I much prefer your knit version to the one that served as your inspiration. 🙂
    Question: Would it be possible for you to share a video tutorial, drawing, or some sort of visual aid for we folk who aren't too experienced in knitting?

    For your bow hat – you state – "to the last two stitches" – are we supposed to knit those stitches in each row? Thanks.

      I can see how that wording is confusing- my apologies! I update the pattern.
