Yoli Hat cover | The Knitting Vortex

Diagonal mesh and fun sideways construction make the Yoli Hat interesting to knit, with just the right amount of modern style. Worked sideways in one piece from a provisional cast on and grafted, the garter brim fits comfortably while the short rows create slouch and naturally shape the crown. Finished carefully, Yoli is reversible and can be worn right off the needles.

Techniques & Skills Used: provisional CO, knit, short rows, easy lace, grafting; this pattern includes links to my short rows and grafting tutorials.
Size: S/M (M/L); 18.5 (20)” brim circumference and 9 (10)” crown, unstretched.
Yarn: Malabrigo Yarn Merino Worsted (100% merino wool, 210 yards/100g); 1 skein, size S/M shown in Verde Azul. The sample as written used 140 yards.
Other Materials: US 8 (5mm) needle, or size to match gauge; Stitch markers (2); Scrap yarn for provisional CO; Yarn needle.
Gauge: 18 st and 28 rows/4” in garter stitch, 16 st and 32 rows in diagonal mesh pattern.

  1. You kinda broke my brain with the idea of knitting a hat sideways. But then I thought about it really hard (you could probably smell the smoke) and I think I have and idea how it might work.

    As usual, you are doing crazy & amazing things!
