With St. Patrick’s Day coming up it seemed fitting to knit Indigo a themed hat! I wanted something he could wear all spring so I decided to create this Irish Moss Hat Knitting Pattern. The Irish Moss stitch is really easy to make- it’s just alternating rows of knit and purl. As long as you keep track of what row you’re working on, it’s very easy!
Needles: Size 8 circular, 16 inch
Irish Moss Hat Knitting Pattern

Cast on 58 (64) sts. Join yarn together and place a marker.
Row 1: K1, P1 across round
Row 2: K1, P1 across round
Row 3: P1, K1 across round

Repeat the 4 rows of pattern until the hat measures 7 (7 1/2) inches from the cast on edge.
Decrease- (start with a row that begins with K1)

K1, K2 together across round until you are left with a handful of stitches. Break yarn and thread through remaining stitches. Pull to tighten and weave in ends.
