The Shine On – Knitted Hat – FREE KNITTING PATTERN INSIDE

So I am really kind of nervous to put my first knitting pattern out there.

If you want to support my work, you can find a ready to print PDF Version with a bigger chart version on HERE on Ravelry.

If you use my patterns and post pictures in social medias it would be nice to link or refer to my blog: martinupnorth.com and use #martinupnorth. Feedback is more than welcome.

But now I am not going to waste any more words.

Chart Notes

  • the chart is knitted in the fair isle technique with two yarn colors at the same time in every round.
  • The decreases start in row 30

left leaning decrease: transfer one stitch to the right needle as if you knit, knit one stitch, lift the transferred stitch over the knitted stitch and from the needle. (decrease 1 stitch)

right leaning decrease: knit one stitch, transfer back to left needle as if you purl, lift next stitch over the transferred stitch and from the needle, Transfer knitted stitch to right needle again as if you knit. (decrease one stitch)

Row 2 to row 30 k1, p1 to stitch marker. (96 stitches)

Change to needles size B, with yarn A and yarn B:

Follow the chart from chart row 1 to row 40.

Use magic loop method or switch to double pints needle as soon as you have to stretch stitches to knit the rounds.

If you have a hard time with your decreases this might help:

At the end of chart row 40 you have 8 stitches left.

Knit one row with yarn B.

Use the kitchener stitch method to sew 8 stitches together.

Cut yarns.

Sew in ends.

  2. Thank you, Martin Up North! Your Shine On hat pattern is beautiful! I just bought your pattern on Ravelry. This pattern caught my attention because I just used a similar motif for a double knit hot mat for my son and his family for Christmas. The hats would be wonderful gifts to include if I can get them knitted quickly! Thank you again for your beautiful hat pattern. Linda Williams New Braunfels, Texas
