Open Work Hat Bonus Pattern 2015

Open Work Hat © 2014 by N Banks
to match open work scarf

Note: If you have never worked a lace type project before, it would be easier for you if you used a very light colored yarn, (not a variegated one) and stitch markers between each group of stitches, (between the k 1, p1, k1, & the five open work stitches). Picture shown is the med one.

½ skein Patton's Pink Worsted Weight Yarn
1 row marker
25 stitch markers
Size 5 & 7 circular knitting needles
1 set Size 7 double pointed knitting needles

With size 5 circular needles, cast on
104 for ex-large, 96 for large, 88 for med, 80 for small, join being careful not to twist stitches.

Rd 1: knit
Rd 2: k 1, p 1 around.
Repeat rows 1 and 2 four times, for a total of 8 rounds.
Change to size 7 circular needles
Rd 9: p 1, k 1, around
Rd 10: k 1, p1 around,
Rd 11: Repeat round 9.

Now start round 1 of pattern

Row 1:  * k1, p1, k1, (place marker), k5, (place marker) *, repeat from
              * to * around.  Slip markers as you come to them.

Row 2 & 4 *p 1, k1, p1,  * k5, repeat from * to * around.

Row 3:   * K 1, p1, k1, (slip next stitch to right hand needle,) 2x, insert left hand needle into the back loops of the two slipped stitches and move to the left needle, then k 2 tog, yo, k 1, yo, sl 1, k 1, psso*, repeat from * to * around.

Repeat rows 1 to 4 for five  pattern repeats, and then do row 1 again,

Rd 1: p 1, k 1, around
Rd 2: k 1, p1 around,
Rd 3: Repeat round 1.

Rd 1: knit, placing markers after every 8th stitch.
Rd 2: Knit to 2 stitches before marker, k2 tog.

Repeat rounds 1 and 2 until you have 1 stitch between markers.
Run yarn needle through remaining stitches, draw up tight, through again. Weave in ends.
