Rainbow Eyelet Slouch - Knit Pattern

I'm so very excited to bring you my 1st pattern of the year and this is also my very first knitting pattern! I'm in love with it. A lot of love and time went into this design! I find that writing knit patterns is simple but making up the items do take more time and attention than crochet. However the results are wonderful! I hope you love this as much as I do! 


While I've crocheted for a very long time, knitting didn't come as easy for me! Something finally clicked in the past two years and this past year I've come to love it! I have so much to learn but I'm really enjoying knitting doll clothes for my daughters dolls. I'll hopefully share a post on that soon as I made her some fun pieces over Christmas. The idea for this design came from all those doll clothes. I wanted to make a matching hat set for my Daughter and her doll.

She is absolutely in love with this hat! The colors are so fun, The small eyelet detail is dainty and the slouchy hat is so comfy and soft! The design it's self is so whimsical. Just perfect for my Calleigh!

Working from the bottom of the Hat up you’ll be working in rounds. Be sure to use a stitch marker at the end of each round to mark your place.

*Cast on 56 stitches - I used the long tail cast on and the magic loop method

If you do not know the magic loop method you could also use 4.5 DPNS

R 1: *(k,p) around until your ribbing is about 1.5 inches tall 
(approx. 10 rounds, 56 sts)

R 2: *(kfb, k7), Rep from * around to last 8 sts, kfb, k6, kfb (64 sts)

R 3: k all sts
R 4: *(k2tog, yo, k2) Rep from * around
R 5-7: k all sts
R 8: k2, *(k2tog, yo, k2), Rep from * around to last two sts, k2tog, yo
R 9-10: k all sts

Rep R 3-10 until the hat measures 5 inches in length



Begin decreasing for crown 
R 1: (k11, k2tog) - (60)
R 2: k all sts

Fasten off, run the tail through the remaining loops and sew top closed.  Weave in all ends. 

Make a pompom and attach it to the top of the hat. I simply used a pom pom maker but you can use your preferred method.
