Ugly Christmas Beer Hat
I designed this hat for my husband. I did not have time to make an Ugly Christmas sweater so here's my quick free pattern to make an Ugly Christmas Beer Hat!
Yarn: Daily DK by Willow Yarns, DK / 8 ply, 100% Superwash Wool, 284 yards / 100 grams, 1 skein Clover (green), Canna Lilly (Red), Ice (white).
Needles: Circular US 3 (3.25 mm), US 5 (3.75mm) and US 6 (4 mm) circular needle length 20 in, DPNs or magic loop for decreasing rows.
Gauge: 17 stitches and 23 rounds = 4 inches in Stockinette stitch on larger needles.
The hat is knit in the round starting from the bottom.
I used the stranded color technique and twisted the working colors every 2 to 3 stitches to avoid long loops.
The pattern includes directions how to knit the hat and for the graphics only charts. But they are simple to follow.
