…………………………………………………………………………………

Inspired by my nephew’s love of dinosaurs, I set out to create a pattern for a colorful hat for children to proclaim their love for prehistoric creatures.

Dino Topper features stranded knitting in the round starting with a corrugated rib brim. Duplicate stitch is suggested to avoid the longest floats and to use just two colors per row. Alternately, the hat can be knit with just the background then duplicate stitch the dinosaur and other details.

…………………………………………………………………………………

Size: This pattern is written for a child’s 19-21” (48-53cm) head circumference. I’ve included modifications for a slightly larger size to accommodate a slightly larger head size, as the written size was just a bit too snug on my son’s melon 21.5” (54.6cm).

Important: This is atypical stranded knitting where floats are long but the finished hat is worth it!

Skill Level: Adventurous beginner or comfortable intermediate in stranded knitting.

Techniques: knitting in the round, two-color stranded, color-coded chart (decreases written and charted), duplicate stitch OR three-color stranded, corrugated rib (optional).

Gauge: 20 stitches and 21 rows = 4 inches in stranded stockinette stitch in the round

MATERIALS NEEDED

Yarn: Worsted weight
Important: Wool is strongly recommended for this hat so that blocking will work its magic, making your hat a smidge bigger if necessary and smoothing out duplicate stitch.
