It first began when I needed some good study knitting…  A provisional cast-on and then almost two feet of stockinette.  For some that may be boring, but for me it keeps the hands busy so my mind is able to concentrate.  It’s a low-key form of multitasking.

This is the result.



Follow the link to Torsion on Ravelry for all the details – my first pattern and it’s free too!


design notes:

reverse stockinette fabric is knit at a loose gauge and doubled for warmth.

gauge/size relationship is essential for proper fit: best worn with 0″ to 1″ negative ease.

optional notes and directions appear throughout the pattern.

this pattern is easibly adaptable to other stitch patterns or yarn weights.

sizes: 20″ [22″] circumference unstretched

gauge: 7stitches/1inch stockinette

yarn: 600[650] yards light fingering yarn

grey hat: Swans Island . Certified Organic Merino Fingering . charcoal

blue hat: Ella Rae . Lace Merino . 106 & Lorna’s Laces . Shepherd Sock . natural

needles: two 16″ circular needles size 3mm, or size to achieve gauge

tools: stitch marker, tapestry needle

note: the grey version, is slightly smaller than the pattern calls for.  i only used one skein of yarn, but you would actually require two to knit to the correct size.
