Balls to the Walls Knits: Little Flicker Hat

Little Flicker Hat
Little Flicker Hat
size Adult Small/Medium

The story behind this hat is simple: I’ve been hanging onto this yarn for what feels like FOREVER now and I finally pulled it out of the drawer the other day and the light just flicked on – I knew exactly what it wanted to be. And this fun-to-knit hat is not just quick to work up, either, but also unisex so you can make it for whomever you’d like!

Sizes: Adult Small/Medium (Adult Medium/Large)

Yarn:┬áMalabrigo Arroyo┬á(100% Superwash Merino Wool; 335 yards [305 meters]/100 grams);┬á#866 Arco Iris – one skein

A look at the finish.

Needles: One 16″ circular needle in size US 5, one 16″ circular needle in size US 6, and one set of double pointed needles (dpns), also in size US 6

Notions: Tapestry needle

Gauge: 20 stitches = 4 inches in stockinette

So let’s make a hat! First off, then, using your size US 5 needles, cast on 108 (117) stitches loosely, place marker, and join in round. Then we’ll work a ribbing, as follows:

Ribbing Row: * p1, k2; rep from *

Knit this ribbing row until piece measures roughly 2″, transfer work to your size US 6 circular needle, and then we’ll work some transition rows, as follows. Notice that you’ll need the following notation to continue; you can also find videos for these techniques below.

rt (right twist): knit two together,
leaving stitches on left-hand needle; next, insert right-hand needle
from the front between the two stitches just knitted together, and knit
the first stitch again.  Finally, slip both stitches from left-hand
needle together

lt (left
twist): with right-hand needle behind left-hand needle, skip one stitch
and knit the second stitch in back loop; then insert right-hand needle
into the backs of both stitches and k2tog-b (knit two together through
back loops, inserting right needle from the right)

So, once you’ve got those techniques down, proceed like so:

Transition Row 1: * p1, lt, p1, k2, p1, rt; rep from *

Transition Row 2: * p1, k1 through back loop (k1-tbl), k1, p1, k2, p1, k1, k1-tlb *

Transition Row 3: * p1, k1-tbl, lt, k2, rt, k1-tbl *

Transition Row 4: * p1, k1-tbl, k6, k1-tbl *

Transition Row 5: * p1, k1-tbl, k1, lt, rt, k1, k1-tbl *

Transition Row 6: * p1, k1-tbl, k6, k1-tbl *

Transition Row 7: * k1, lt, k1, rt, k1, rt *

Transition Row 8: knit

Transition Row 9: * k2, lt, k2, rt, k1 *

Transition Row 10: knit

Transition Row 11: * k3, lt, rt, k2 *

Transition Row 12: knit

Transition Row 13: * k4, lt, k3 *

Complete transition rows 1 – 13 (both sizes). Then, knit in stockinette until piece measures roughly 7 – 7.5″ (8 – 8.5″) and you’ve just finished a round (in my finished piece, which I made in the smaller size, I worked until it measured 7.5″ but you can see that it doesn’t fit snugly so you could make it a bit shorter). Then we’ll work the following transition rows:

Transition Row 1: * k4, lt, k3 *

Transition Row 2: knit

Transition Row 3: * k3, rt, lt, k2 *

Transition Row 4: knit

Transition Row 5: * k2, rt, k2, lt, k1 *

Transition Row 6: knit

Transition Row 7: * k1, rt, k4, lt *

Transition Row 8: knit

Knit these eight transition rows (both sizes), and then we’ll work the decrease, as follows:

Decrease Row 1: * p1, ssk, k4, k2tog * (84 stitches [91 stitches])

Decrease Row 2: * p1, k6 *

You’ll probably want to transfer your work to your dpns now…

Decrease Row 3: * p1, ssk, k2, k2tog * (60 stitches [65 stitches])

Decrease Row 4: * p1, k4 *

Decrease Row 5: * p1, ssk, k2tog * (36 stitches [39 stitches])

Decrease Row 6: * p1, k2 *

Decrease Row 7: * p1, k2tog * (24 stitches [26 stitches])

Decrease Row 8: * k2tog * (12 stitches [13 stitches])

Complete decrease rows 1 – 8, clip yarn tail, and use tapestry needle to thread through remaining 12 (13) stitches. Pull tight, thread to inside of hat, and knot. Tuck in ends and block, if desired.┬á
