Arise Hat

Inspired by a picture of painted ladders resting along a weathered fence, the Arise Hat is a two-color hat with a fun slip stitch texture section. Using DK weight yarn, it is knit in the round, from the brim up with two colors and a combination of knit, purl, and slip stitches. Designed to complement the Arise Cowl, the hat is a lovely accessory on its own. The Arise Hat pattern has six sizes, making it possible to knit one for the entire family.

Designer Notes and Tips

    Color A is the color that is at the brim of the hat. Color B is the color at the crown. This pattern is great for using up scraps of yarn. Just make sure to check gauge and to weigh yarn so that you can knit the size that you need. 

     If you want to knit the hat longer or shorter, you can easily do that by adding or subtracting rounds from the Stockinette Stitch Section that is after the Slip Stitch Stripe Section and before the Crown Decrease Section.
