Item details

This listing is a KNITTING PATTERN ONLY, not the actual hood, so that you can make the item yourself with your own choice of yarn and color.

NOTE: Patterns are a final sale, due to their digital nature they cannot be returned or refunded.

This pattern is available in English and French (you will get 2 PDF files when buying the pattern).

This cute and fun one-piece rabbit hood is designed to keep out cold and blustery winds. It is an easy, quick knit perfect for a weekend project and for gift giving. A combination of seed stitch and stockinette creates a textural fabric with beautiful stitch definition on super bulky yarn.

Zaïka means “little rabbit” in Russian

The brim is knit sideways and then stitches are picked up along one side and knit up to create the body of the hood, shaping back panel as you go. Collar is worked first in the round then back and forth by picking up stitches onto the neck edge. Life stitches at the top are returned to the
needle to work ears after the rest of the hood is complete.

Hood Width = 9¼-9¾-9¾-10-10½ ” (23.5-24.5-24.5-25.5-26.5 cm) folded at widest point

Translate to English
inserire immagini e possibilità di acquistare lo schema dei lavori tutto in lingua italiana e poi trovarsi solo schema spiegazione dei lavori in lingua inglese e francese è proprio deludente.
