It's called the Kuebel hat, and I love it!


I originally made this hat for my husband, who is the prime example of people who cannot wear a woolen hat longer than 10 minutes before it starts to itch them. He also gets cold easily, so if I were to make him a hat, it would need to be warm.


So I had this idea of a two-layer hat, where the inside would be soft and non-itchy and the outside really warm and covering the ears. I'm really bad at double knitting, so I decided to knit two hats separately. But I also hate seaming, so I knit the hats one at a time, but using the same cast-on edge.


Behold the Kuebel hat was born! Now this hat knitting pattern is available for you to purchase, as well.


The pattern features seven different fair isle -type colourwork charts to choose from.


What you’ll need for the hat:


Needles: 5mm 40 cm circular, and possibly a set of 5mm dpns for the hat crown


Yarn: Ca. 60 grams / 80 meters of worsted weight yarn with a high wool contect in Main Colour Ca. 20 grams / 30 meters of the same yarn in Contrasting Colour and Ca. 50 grams / 105 meters slightly smaller gauge worsted weight microfiber yarn. Some scrap yarn for provisional cast on.

Onpa hyvä isea. Pitää jossain välissä lukea ohje huolellisesti läpi. Jos vaikka saisi tehtyä omalla miehelle sellaisen pipon, jota hän voisi käyttää. Nolottaa, kun toinen joutuu kaupasta ostamaan itselleen uusia pipoja kadonneiden tilalle.
