Knitting Pattern: Artichoke Hat

Last Fall, I went a little hat crazy and made several patterns that I shared on Ravelry. Here is one of my favorites that came out of the design frenzy:

It made me think of artichokes for some reason…

Materials

1 skein Patons North America Classic Wool Worsted or ~200 yards worsted weight yarn

US 6 16” circular needle

US 8 16” circular needle

US 8 double-pointed needles

Gauge

28 stitches = 4 inches using US 6 needles in k1, p1 rib

One lace pattern repeat is ~1 1⁄2 inches across at the widest point using US 8 needles

*This hat has lots of stretch so gauge isn’t *that* important. As long as you can match the smaller needle gauge for the rib, just use a needle that is two sizes larger for the rest of the hat!

Abbreviations/Stitches

k = knit

k2tog = knit two stitches together, decrease

p = purl

sl = slip stitch

psso = pass slipped stitch over, decrease

yo = yarn over, increase

Lace pattern: 12 stitch repeat for 8 rows

1) yo, k3, [sl, k2tog, psso,] k3, yo, p3. * Repeat from * around.

2) k9, p3. * Repeat from * around.

3) k1, yo, k2, [sl, k2tog, psso,] k2, yo, k1, p3. * Repeat from * around.

4) k9, p3. * Repeat from * around.

5) k2, yo, k1, [sl, k2tog, psso,] k1, yo, k2, p3. * Repeat from * around.

6) k9, p3. * Repeat from * around.

7) k3, yo, [sl, k2tog, psso,] yo, k3, p3. * Repeat from * around.

8) k9, p3. * Repeat from * around.

Directions

Cast on 120 stitches using US 6 needles and join in the round. Work in knit one, purl one rib for 1 1⁄4 inches. On next round, switch to US 8 needles and work in lace pattern for a total of 7 inches from cast on edge.

Begin decrease rounds:
– Be sure to keep purl stitches intact (this makes the swirl at the top of that hat!) and only decrease within the knit stitches until there are no more knit stitches.

1) K2tog, k7, p3. * Repeat from * around.

2) K2tog, k6, p3. * Repeat from * around.

3) K2tog, k5, p3. * Repeat from * around.

4) K2tog, k4, p3. * Repeat from * around.

5) K2tog, k3, p3. * Repeat from * around.

6) K2tog, k2, p3. * Repeat from * around.

7) K2tog, k1, p3. * Repeat from * around.

8) K2tog, p3. * Repeat from * around.

9) K2tog, p2. * Repeat from * around.

10) K2tog, p1. * Repeat from * around.

11) K2tog. * Repeat from * around.

Finish off by pulling yarn through remaining stitches.
