Christmas Knit-A-Long: Pattern part five
Our festive Knit-A-Long has reached its end with one final pattern to knit the gorgeous matching hat. Read on to download the pattern and find out more.
When knitting this hat, you’ll need to follow a chart again for the stranded knitting snowflakes. You’ve already mastered the art of stranding on the jumper in previous posts so I’m sure you’ll find it a doddle! But we’ve included our top tips for the stranding technique below in case you need a refresher. We’ve also included a step-by-step picture guide for making a pom pom on a fork! Click on the button below to download the pattern and get started.
This part of the pattern will take on the snowflakes, which are knitted using the stranding method. Inside your pattern download you will find a knitting chart to follow. If this is your first time following a chart or trying stranded knitting, read our handy guide on how to read a chart. Click here to read the guide.
When you work the snowflake chart, you’ll need to join in colour B (white), if you haven’t done this before, don’t worry! It truly is simple. Read this guide for joining on a new ball of yarn.
To finish the pattern up, you’ll need to make two little pom poms. If you’ve never made one before, here is a quick and simple picture tutorial teaching you how to make it using a fork!
Monica’s top tips
This pattern is made by knitwear designer and teacher Monica Russel of The KnitKnacks.
- “Alternatively pom pom makers are a useful accessory for knitters as they ensure that the pom poms are of an equal size. If you prefer you can make tassels to go on the top corners of the hat.”
