My son requested one of these--about a year ago. Imagine that; I finally got around to it but it will be a Christmas gift, so don't tell!
Yarn: Cascade 220, in black, orange and red. (worsted weight)
Pattern: One for All Cap by Tuulia Salmela.
Needles: #7 (4.5mm) dpns. I knit the chart using a circular needle.
Comments: The pattern shows it knit in a DK weight with #3 (3.25mm) needles, but I used a worsted weight and larger needles, which I calculated casually and did some hoping that it would fit. I also did only 3 sequences of the pattern, rather than 4. I cast on 87 stitches on a circular needle and added a stitch when I started the solid black row so that I would have an even number of stitches for the decreasing on double points--88 stitches divided by 4 needles (22 stitches on each needle). When I began the decreases, I switched to double point needles and decreased down to a total of 8 stitches, then closed the hat.
I think it's a lovely, interesting pattern. Two things to note:
- You have to either carry the unused color a long way or (a better way) catch it in halfway through a maximum of 9 stitches.
- The narrow garter stitch edge wants to curl, and if I made it again I might use a rib stitch there, although with a short band there's no guarantee that even that would not roll somewhat.
