Samoa Hat

A beautifully simple hat with a clean, I-cord cast on.

Just when I thought it couldn’t get any better in the Hat Department, it did. At last, the knitting universe is on my side. For the time being. Fingers crossed.

I am so pleased to share another new hat pattern with you today. It’s called Samoa.

Samoa is a clean, stylish hat featuring an I-cord cast on for a finished, tidy brim. Step by step instructions are provided if you are new to I-cord cast-ons.  They are more work up front, but it’s entirely worth it. I-cord cast-ons aren’t as scary as they sound. You can totally do this!

I loath stockinette brims that roll, and sometimes I just get sick of ribbing. It’s nice to change things up now and again. Keep it fresh.

The textured band, a simple combination of knit and slipped stitches, is divided from the brim and clean upper stockinette section with rounds of knitted chain stitch. Step by step written instructions are also included.

I used Madelinetosh Tosh DK in Great Grey Owl (I have been so into greys lately!) on size 6 (4 mm) needles, but the pattern is flexible and can be knitted with similar needles and yarn types.

This hat is sized to fit an adult woman but can easily be adjusted for a smaller or larger circumference by casting on fewer or more stitches in multiples of ten.

All instructions are provided in both English and metric units in a professional, sleek pattern.

Pretty pattern = pretty hat.

Samoa is just challenging enough not to bore you to tears with a few fancy but completely achievable details to keep things spicy in the knitting department.

Looking for holiday knitting gift ideas but you want something a little different from the ordinary hum drum? This hat is for you! Impress your friends and family or knit one up for yourself. Less than two months of holiday knitting time remain!

{Pause while I recover from brief panic attack…}

Samoa is available on Ravelry for $3.00 USD. Enjoy and happy knitting!

Joining Ginny’s lovely Yarn Along and reading How to Knit a Love Song. Completely cheesy and predictable, but I truly can’t put it down. Sigh.
