Knit a Color Dipped Hat with Purl Soho

I know how these Color Dipped Hats were made, but even still, I like to imagine something wildly different. I think of them as capturing the tiny window in time when a soft white fabric is quickly dipped into a vat of pigment, and the color seeps through the outside but hasn’t yet coated the inside.

GAUGE
24 stitches and 36 rows = 4 inches in Fisherman’s Rib

To make a Fisherman’s Rib swatch flat (not in the round), cast on an odd number of stitches and work the following…

Set-Up Row: *K1, p1, repeat from * to last stitch, k1.

Row 1: K1, *k1b (see Notes below), p1, rep from * to last two stitches, k1b, k1.

Row 2: K1, *p1, k1b, rep from * to last two stitches, p1, k1.

Repeat Rows 1 and 2.

SIZES
Baby (Toddler/Kid, Teen/Adult Small, Adult Large)

Finished Circumference: 14 1/2 (17 1/4, 20, 22 1/2) inches
Finished Height: 8 (9, 11, 12) inches
SAMPLES: The Samples pictured here are size Baby in Pink Grapefruit, Teen/Adult Small in Super Pink, and Adult Large in Sea Salt.

NOTES
WORKING INTO THE STITCH BELOW

k1b [knit one below]: Insert the tip of the right needle into the stitch below the next stitch from front to back, knit normally (wrapping the yarn around the needle and pulling it back through the stitch below) and let the stitch above fall from the left needle.

p1b [purl one below]: Insert the tip of the right needle into the stitch below the next stitch from back to front, purl normally (wrapping the yarn around the needle and pulling it back through the stitch below) and let the stitch above fall from the left needle.

Instructions

  • Step 1

    PATTERN
    BEGIN AT BOTTOM EDGE

    With CC, cast 88 (104, 120, 136) stitches onto the circular needle. I used a Long Tail Tubular Cast On, because it’s nice and stretchy, but a basic Long Tail Cast On would also do! If you use the Long Tail Tubular Cast On, don’t forget to work the two Foundation Rows before joining in the round.

    IF YOU DID A LONG TAIL TUBULAR CAST ON…

    Foundation Row 1: *Knit 1 through the back loop, slip one with yarn in front, repeat from * to end of row.

    Foundation Row 2: *Knit 1, slip 1 with yarn in front, repeat from * to end of row.

    IF YOU DID A LONG TAIL CAST ON OR SIMILAR…

    Foundation Row: *K1, p1, repeat from * to end of row.

  • Step 2

    WORK BODY OF HAT

    Place unique marker and join for working in the round, being careful to not twist the stitches.

    Round 1: With CC, *k1b, p1, repeat from * to end of round.

    Round 2: With MC, *k1, p1b, repeat from * to end of round.

    Repeat Rounds 1 and 2 until piece measures 2 (2 1/4, 2 3/4, 3) inches from the cast-on edge, ending with Round 2.

    Cut CC.

    With MC…

    Round 1: *K1b, p1, repeat from * to end of round.

    Round 2: *K1, p1b, repeat from * to end of round.

    Repeat Rounds 1 and 2 until piece measures 6 ¾ (7, 9 ¼, 9 ½) inches from cast-on edge.

  • Step 3

    SHAPE CROWN

    NOTE: Switch to double pointed needles when necessary.

    Set-Up Round: [(K1b, p1) eleven (13, 15, 17) times, place marker] three times, continue in established pattern to end of round.

    Round 1 (decrease): [K1, p1b, Lsl dec, *p1b, k1, repeat from * to five stitches before next marker, p1b, Rsl dec, p1b] four times. [16 stitches decreased]

    Round 2: [K1b, p1, k1, *p1, k1b, repeat from * to three stitches before next marker, p1, k1, p1] four times.

    Round 3: *K1, p1b, repeat from * to end of round.

    Round 4 (decrease): [K1b, p1, Lsl dec, *p1, k1b, repeat from * to five stitches before next marker, p1, Rsl dec, p1] four times. [16 stitches decreased]

    Round 5: *K1, p1b, repeat from * to end of round.

    Round 6: *K1b, p1, repeat from * to end of round.

    Repeat Rounds 1-6 one (1, 2, 2) more time(s). [24 (40, 24, 40) stitches]

  • Step 4

    FOR SIZES TODDLER/KID AND ADULT LARGE ONLY

    Repeat Round 1 one more time. [24 stitches, both sizes]

    Next Round: *K1b, p1, repeat from * to last two stitches, removing stitch markers as you get to them, then slip two stitches onto right needle, remove end-of-round marker, replace two slipped stitches onto left needle.

    Final Decrease Round: [Slip 3 stitches together knitwise, k2tog, pass 3 slipped stitches over and off needle, p1b] four times. [8 stitches, both sizes]

  • Step 5

    FOR SIZES BABY AND TEEN/ADULT SMALL ONLY

    Next Round: *K1, p1b, repeat from * to last two stitches, removing stitch markers as you get to them, then slip two stitches onto right needle, remove end-of-round marker, replace two slipped stitches onto left needle.

    Final Decrease Round: [Slip 3 stitches together knitwise, k2tog, pass 3 slipped stitches over and off needle, p1] four times. [8 stitches, both sizes]
