  1. Materials and Resources

Below is a list of everything you will need to make this hat

  • Paintbox Simply Aran – 100g balls in any colours you choose – I used the following colours;

    • Pure Black (301) (1 ball)
  • 6mm tunisian hook
  • Tapestry needle
  • Scissors
  • Pompom, either homemade or bought, I made a fur one using James C Brett Chinchilla yarn

 

  1. Stitch List

Below is a list of all the stitches (and their abbreviations) featured in this series of patterns.  All terms used are American.

  • Ch – chain
  • TW – Tunisian weave stitch – this is made up of a row of Tunisian full stitch and a row of Tunisian knit stitch alternating
  • TK – Tunisian knit stitch
  • TP – Tunisian purl stitch
  • TSS – Tunisian Simple Stitch
  • Dec – decrease (for Tunisian full stitch, don’t pull up a loop on the skipped stitch, for Tunisian knit stitch, insert hook through next 2 loops and then pull up a loop)
  • MC – main colour
  • CC – contrast colour

 

  1. Notes

Here are a few handy tips to help you with the pattern.

  • The gauge for this pattern is 13 stitches and 18 rows of the TW stitch in a 10cm square
  • This hat comes in 4 sizes, toddler (48cm round, 21cm tall), child 51cm round, 24cm tall), small adult/teen 54cm round, 27cm tall) and large adult (57cm round, 30cm tall). There is a bit of stretch in the hats
  • Return pass for each row is not written in the patterns, you still need to do this at the end of each row.
  • When you are in the Tunisian weave section, you will need to alternate the yarn colour every other row.
