The Sentido hat is knit in the round in 1x1 rib, to be worn with a folded brim. There is a colorwork section worked in mosaic knitting.
I suggest knitting the inside of the folded brim in the contrasting color in order to spare a few meters of the main color. This section will not be visible while wearing the hat.
Deadline for finishing the hat is February 15th (flexible). If you’re interested in participating, send me an e-mail.
The pattern is written for 3 sizes child[adult M, adult L].
- Unstretched circunference: 37[42, 47]cm / 14½[16½, 22½]''
- Maximum stretch circunference: 50[57, 63]cm / 19¾[22½, 25]''
- Height with folded brim: 24[26.5, 28]cm / 9½ [10½, 11]''
My samples are sizes adult M.
The size “child” is recommended for children; the size “adult M” is recommended for teenagers and adults with a head circumference smaller than 57cm/22½''; the size “adult L” is indicated for head circumferences larger than 57cm/22½''.
Fingering weight yarn in two contrasting colors:
- MM: 40[50, 60]g / 180[225, 270]m / 197[246, 295]yd
- CC: 20[25, 30]g / 90[112, 135]m / 99[123, 148]yd
On the blue/yellow sample, size M, I used 45g of the blue color yarn and 18g of the yellow one (knitted swatch included).
