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!

    The hat comfortably stretches to fit up to a 23” / 58cm head circumference. For a larger hat, try going up a needle size.

    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.
