The Advanced Pussyhat

Sorry, no photos.

If you are knitting a Pussyhat for this Saturday and are a fairly advanced knitter (who hates to seam) this is for YOU.

Use two sets of double ended needles size 8. It’s easier. Unless you have some with really long cords, like a Denise set. I’m using two sets of Crystalite #8 lavender.

Cast on 50 stitches on the bottom and 50 stitches on the top using Judy’s Magic Cast On.

Knit until the “pocket” (from the cast on to the needle) is 7.5 inches. Remember, you’re working in the round here so as you go, your hat will form a pocket.

Start your stockinette and knit 2 purl 2 for 4.25 inches.

Use Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off.

Sew in the two tails and you’re done.

I hate seaming so working in the round like I do for toe up socks makes a great hat. Goes really fast too.
