To adjust the width of the hat you can increase or decrease your total number of stitches by increments of seven. To adjust the length of the hat simply add more rows or decrease the number of rows in the main body of the hat. The decrease is 2” long. So simply knit until the hat is 2” from the overall desired length and then begin your decrease.
4-1/4 stitches = 1” in stockinette stitch
6 rows = 1” in stockinette stitch
1 stitch marker
Tapestry needle for weaving in ends.
Odie Hat is knitted in the round on circular needles. You will use double pointed needles for the decreases at the top of the hat. The brim of the hat is a secure folded brim. You will join the cast on row with your working stitches to make the folded brim. If you do not want to use the technique I have included in this pattern you can simply join the cast on edge to the inside of your hat after you have completed knitting the entire hat. The brim is super soft and cozy and should feel nice and snug over your ears.
