Miss Emma

Introducing the Emma hat.
I fell into love with this yarn when I saw it (it's Red Heart Collage in Tundra).  I've started things, frogged them, ripped them out, and started again more times than I could explain.  This wool called for something great.
Finally, I gave up.  I picked it yesterday and just started knitting.  Whatever came of it, came of it, and I promised I could not frog another project with this yarn.  And, well, this is what happened!
I'm kind of in love with this hat.  It actually might be more than love.  I'm even knitting another as we speak because my mom loved it so much she wants one!  You gotta love successful knitting projects!
This pattern features a twisted rib, with a double moss stitch stripe alternating with a stockinette stitch stripe.
So, here is the Emma hat.  I knit this in one afternoon, so it's perfect it add to your Christmas knitting list for a quick, last minute gift!  And then maybe make one for yourself... :)

The Emma Hat




100 grams of any medium weight yarn.  I used Red Heart Collage.
5mm 8US 16" circlar needle (one)
5mm 8US double point needle (four)
Wool needle to darn in edges
Stitch marker
Cast on 74 sts.  Place marker, careful not to twist.
Knit 10 rows:   *K1 twisted (knit into the back of the stitch), P1* repeat to end of row.
Set up row: *K1, KFB (knit into front and back - this increases by one stitch)* to last two stitches, K2.
This will bring your total stitches to 110
Body Pattern
Row 1-2: *K1, P1* repeat to end of row.
Row 3-4: *P1, K1* repeat to end of row.
Row 5-6: *K1, P1* repeat to end of row.
Row 7-12: Knit all stitches
Knit body pattern twice.
Knit rows 1-9.
Row 1: *K2tog* repeat to end of row
Row 2: *K2tog* repeat to last stitch, K1.
Row 3: *K2tog* repeat to end of row
Row 4: *K2tog* repeat to end of row
Row 5: *K2tog* repeat to last stitch, K1.
Thread yarn those last four stitches.  Pull tight, and darn ends it.
And that's it!
You have your lovely Emma hat :)  Enjoy!
