Constructed from the top down, Helix requires only one skein (about 65g) of worsted-weight yarn. Perfect for that single skein of luxury yarn you’ve been hoarding!
SIZE: The pattern is written for a size to fit most adult heads. If you’d like to knit it for a larger head, instructions are included in the pattern to make the hat at a slightly bigger gauge, as below:
FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: Medium (20 in/51 cm circumference). Large (22 in/56 cm circumference). Shown in size Medium.
YARN: Dream in Color Classy (100% merino; 250yds/ 229m per 113g skein); color Bermuda Teal; 1 skein.
NEEDLES: Medium: Set of four or five US #7 [4.5 mm] double-pointed needles, or size required to achieve correct gauge; US #7 [4.5 mm] circular needle, 16 or 20 inches long. Large: Set of four or five US #8 [5.0 mm] double-pointed needles, or size required to achieve correct gauge; US #8 [5.0 mm] circular needle, 16 or 20 inches long.
NOTIONS: Stitch marker, cable needle (if not using cabling-without-a-cable-needle technique), yarn needle. A row counter is helpful for keeping track of where you are in the pattern.
GAUGE: Medium: 18 sts/28 rows = 4 inches/10cm in stockinette stitch on US #7 [4.5 mm] needles. Large: 17 sts/26 rows = 4 inches/10cm in stockinette stitch on US #8 [5.0 mm] needles.
