Free Entrelac Hat Pattern

christmas-0091

 I originally made this to fit my big head.  If you are more normal, make the band with 70 stitches, then increase to 80 stitches on the last row before starting the base triangles.

 Yarn used: 2 skeins Noro Kureyon color 102

Needles: 16” circular size 7               16” or 24” size 9               2 double points size 6

 

With size 7 needle, cast on 80 stitches and Join, being careful not to twist.  Knit 1, purl 1 (or knit 2, purl 2) for 1 ½ “.

Change to size 9 needle.

 

Base triangles

Knit 2, turn.  Purl 2, turn.  K3, turn.  P3, turn.  K4, turn. P4, turn.  K5, turn.  P5, turn.  K6, turn.  P6, turn.  K7, turn.  P7, turn.  K8.  One triangle completed.  Repeat these rows until you have completed 10 triangles.  Turn.  Purl 8 on the last triangle to get in position for the next row.

 

Right sloping squares

Pick up and purl 8 stitches along side of first base triangle, turn.  (K8, turn, P7, P2tog, turn) 8 times.  Each time you P2tog, you decrease 1 stitch on the base triangle until all 8 stitches are used.  Repeat from the beginning until there are 10 squares sloping right.  K8 on the last square to get in position for the next row.

 

Left sloping squares

Pick up and knit 8 stitches along side of right sloping square, turn.  (P8, turn.  P7, slip1, K1 from right sloping square, pass over the slipped stitch, turn) 8 times.  Repeat from the beginning until there are 10 squares sloping left.  P8 on the last square to get in position for the next row.

 

Repeat right sloping squares section.

Pick up and knit 8 stitches along the side of the right sloping square, turn.  (P8, turn.  K7, slip1, K1 from right sloping square, pass over slipped stitch, turn) 8 times.  This completes the first square. 

The rest of the squares are completed as follows: *Pick up and knit 8 stitches along side of right sloping, turn.  P7, P2tog, turn.  K7, slip 1, K1 from right sloping square, pass over slipped stitch, turn.  Repeat these two rows decreasing one stitch at the end of each row until all 8 stitches on each side have been used.  Repeat from * 9 times.  Bind off last 8 stitches loosely.  Sew bound off edge to side of first square.

 

I-Cord

With double pointed needles, pick up and knit one into top point of each square (10 stitches).  Do not turn.  Slide stitches to right side of needle.  K2tog 3 times, K3tog  (4 stitches).  K4 stitches, then slip and repeat until you reach desired length.  Knit 2tog twice, then knit 2tog once.

The gloves shown in the top picture were made using Ann Budd’s book.  I used a little over one skein of the Noro on size 4 needles.  They did not wear well and I am planning to make another pair using Noro Kureyon Sock Yarn.
