The Staffhat!

I saw a hat looking like this one in a shop in Trondheim in Norway and wanted to make it! The one in the store contained only acrylic fibres, something I’m not too happy about! So then I had to make it myself. Here’s the pattern!

This is what you need:

100 grams of yarn. The gauge is not critical in this project since you knit the cable lengthwise and can try it around your head as you work. Even so, I would use yarn in aran thickness.

5,5 mm dpns or circular needles. Use what you prefer!

5 mm crochet hook for the top part of the hat.

This is what you do:

Cast on 20 sts and knit like this:

First row: K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, K10, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1

Second row: K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P10, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1

Repeat these two rows two times more.

Cable row: K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, slip 5 sts on a cableneedle in the front, K5, K sts from the cableneedle, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1.

Knit row 2, then row one and two 7 times, then cablerow again. Continue like this until the work is the right size for you. Bind off and sew it together. Fasten off all ends.

Now it’s time to do some crocheting!

Start every round with chain 3, this is the first doublecrochet stitch. Make about 65 dc’s in one round.

Work in the round until the hat is almost the sixe you want. The decreases is worked over 6 rounds, so take this into consideration of when you need to start.


Dc into the next 3 sts, dec one dc. Repeat through round.

Dc in each sts. No decreases.

Dc into the next 2 sts, dec one dc. Repeat through round.

Dc into the next 1 sts, dec one dc. Repeat through round.

Dec one dc. Repeat through round.

Dec one dc. Repeat through round.

Now you sew tight the hole and fasten off.

This should be it!

If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

I would love to see the finished result!
