Hurdle Stitch Hat Knitting Pattern- a pretty, textured hat in an easy to knit stitch!
This past week, the mornings have been chilly and I love it! It isn't quite knitted hat weather, but you can tell it's coming!
This hat is knit in the round. If you've never tried the Hurdle Stitch before, it's easy! It created using alternate knit and purl stitches. I used Rowan Big Wool Silk for this hat. This was an older skein that I had and it doesn't seem readily available anymore (except for a few skeins on Amazon). Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick is a great substitute that's sold at most yarn stores.
This Hurdle Stitch Hat is a fast project thanks to the super bulky yarn and large needles. I finished this hat in an evening!
