Josh's Link Hat
As promised, I am adding my original pattern for the Link Hat and Triforce Scarf here. This is my first time designing/writing a pattern, so it may not be the best instructions. I wanted to make sure that things were easy enough for a beginner, because no one should be without their Nintendo inspired gear. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me.

There are only 2 things I ask in return:

Please share pictures of your finished hats and scarves with me. I would love to see how they turn out!
Please do not make and sell the hats and scarves you make from my patterns.
Well with all that being said, here are the patterns you have been waiting for (hope it was worth the wait):

  • Step 1

    Cast on 78 stitches using circular needles.
    Knit every round until it measures 7".

  • Step 2

    Start using the following for working decrease of hat:
    Row 1: Knit all stitches
    Row 2: k2tog, knit the rest of the stitches on the row.

    *Note: Work decrease until the hat is the hat is about .5" less than desired length (for my hat I worked 66 rows of each - total of 132 rows of decrease pattern).

    Step 3

    For the last 2 rows repeat row two.

    Leave about 10" of yarn and thread through remaining stitches.
    Pull tightly and then weave ends through.

I was wondering if anyone knows (and would be willing to share) how to convert a in-the round / DPN pattern into a knitted flat (I don't mind seams!) pattern?!?!

I think If you just cast on two more stitches (instead of 78, 80, for the seam), and k2tog the center two stitches it will work the same way but you might want to test it on a small scale first. I might be totally wrong.

Thanks!

I designed it for my bf's b-day last year. He's a huge Zelda fan and always said he wanted a hat like Link.
