Skill Level:
Advanced Beginner
Faina Goberstein
Accessories, Design, Knitting
Class Details:

Choose your yarn and gauge to make a hat that you will love following Faina’s simple approach—which you can also use as a blueprint for designing more complex hats. You will learn to use provided tables where you reflect your thought process in designing a hat step by step.

You will be able to add other sizes from baby to adult, if you need it. Standard measurements will be provided. Your hat size will be determined in class.

During this class you will:
1.Design a beanie in Stockinette
2.Design a simple cable beanie based on the first hat
3.Calculate hat brim and body stitch counts
4.Work through the crown
5.Have an idea of some modifications of the pattern

Disclosure: This class intended to be an example of how to design a hat. Every hat is different and there is no one recipe for all. You will leave the class with general understanding of how to do it on your own with tools learned in class.


Make a 6 x 6 in swatch in Stockinette. Measure a blocked gauge and bring this information to class.

Supplies for Class:

Calculator, about 50g of worsted weight yarn and suitable double-pointed needles, round markers, cable needle, and tapestry needle.
