Cheltenham Hat – A Glamourous and Cozy Hat
Designed by the talented team over at Lion Brand Yarns, this hat is knitted in the round using double-pointed needles. This is an easy pattern that is ideal for confident beginners to tackle.
The hat is available in a single size; however, it is quite stretchy and will be able to fit a range of sizes. A completed hat will have a circumference of about 19 inches and a height of roughly 9 inches. In metric measurements that is about 48.5 cm in circumference and 23 cm in height.
To make the hat, you will need Lion Brand’s Go for Faux yarn. It is a soft and furry super bulky yarn made of 100% polyester. This yarn is simply perfect for making fabulous accessories and cozy blankets. Best of all, it is machine washable.
You will also need to a size US 10.5 double pointed knitting needle. That’s a 6.5 mm needle if you are using the metric system.
Moreover, you will be using the k2tog knitting decrease when you start doing this project. The k2tog or knitting two stitches together is a basic right slanting decrease that is often paired with yarnover on lace patterns.
If you want to learn how to do the k2tog, we have an illustrated tutorial for it that you’ll find helpful. Find this tutorial here: Basic Right-Slanting Decrease (K2tog).
