Honey Seed Hat

  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    This aran weight hat features bold slip stitches to create the fun graphic effect. Begin with the ribbed brim and add a contrast color for the large honeycombs with a slipped seed stitch pattern filling the honeycomb shapes. I used De Rerum Natura’s aran weight wool called Cyrano. It’s very plush, soft, and woolly and it knits up super fast!

    Aran weight

    The samples were knit with De Rerum Natura Cyrano, which is a woolly and plush aran weight merino. It feels thicker than a standard worsted weight yarn. Select a yarn that has approximately 164yds / 150m per 100g skein.

    You could also try holding 1 strand of DK weight yarn together with 1 strand of fingering weight yarn to get an aran weight gauge.

    MC - 110yds / 101m
    CC - 55yds / 50m total

    US 9 / 5.5mm circular in 40” / 100cm length or one size smaller than larger needle
    US 10 / 6mm circular in 40” / 100cm or size needed to obtain gauge

    Magic loop method is used for knitting in the rnd.

    1 stitch marker, tapestry needle

    16 sts & 34 rnds = 4” / 10cm in Honeycomb pattern using larger needles
