Needle : US 10.5 [6.5mm], or needle to obtain gauge.
Gauge : 15 sts and 20 rows = 4 inches in st st.
Notions : Tapestry needle, cable needle.

Pattern Notes : This hat is knitted flat, back and forth from the rim to the crown, then seamed and gathered to create a hat – undo the gathering at the crown and you have a tight fitting cowl.

Recycled Stitchmarkers

You can now find a selection of beaded stitchmarkers on my etsy page.

I re-purposed old necklaces into these handy little knitting accessories after needing some stitch makers myself due to losing my usual supply in the move!

They come in two sizes, so make sure you find the right set for your needle size.

And they have their own little linen bag, so you [and I] can’t lose them!

Do you have some old, long forgotten necklaces yourself? Send them to me and receive 10% off your next by Annie Claire order! Email me for the mailing address.
