The wind will not die down here, so I continue to make hats (also since I keep giving away hats, I keep making them..) and this time I wanted a simple, slouchy hat. I wanted it to look knit too, so I used a double slip stitch again (like on my Nuance Hat). But since it’s worked flat, you need to slip into your first stitch, then do a double slip stitch in the first stitch as wellin order to not decrease accidentally.
I know the double slip stitch (dsl st) can give some people a problem-but you just need to make sure you are putting 2 sl sts into each st! You start off each sl st row with 1 sl st in the first, then do a dsl st by inserting your hook into the first st again, pulling up a loop, then inserting hook into second st, pulling up a loop, then pulling that loop thru the 2 loops on the hook. Then you’d just work dsl sts across.
I’ll try and get a photo tutorial done so you can have a visual of this stitch too.
WW wool yarn-I used Patons Classic
Hat is worked flat, then sewn/crocheted up the side and top to close!
Ch 52, hdc in back hump of 3rd ch from hook and each hump across-50 sts
Row 1: Ch 1, turn. Sl st in first st, Dsl st in first st and dsl st across.
Row 2: Ch 2, hdc in back loop only across.
Repeat rows 2 & 3 until hat just fits around head, and make sure your last row is a row 2. Break yarn, then fold rectangle in half and sl st up sides. Put tail onto a needle and sew top closed.
Wah-la! Cute knit-look rib hat!
