caron® x pantone™ knit chevron hat

This colorful chevron hat is a cinch to make! You’ll knit it up from Caron® x Pantone™ yarn, an incredibly soft merino wool blend that’s been expertly color-matched to create stunning palettes (like the one in this beauty). Just pick your favorite color combination, check out the pattern and get to knitting!
Step 1

SIZE: One size, to fit adult

GAUGE: 15 sts and 20 rows = 4"[10 cm] with larger U.S. 10 (6 mm) needles in stocking stitch. Take time to check your gauge.

SPECIAL STITCH(ES):

  • Center Dec (Center Decrease): Worked over 3 sts, slip next 2 stitches as if to K2tog. K1, then pass slipped sts over knit stitch.  Center of 3 stitches should be on top of decrease, 2 stitches have been decreased.


INSTRUCTIONS:

Notes: Before working with Caron® x Pantone™ multi-shade yarn braid, separate each color link and wind into 5 separate balls.

  • Each color link will be referenced by its Pantone™ number (see label).
  • Designate each different shade of the 5 separate yarn balls as Contrast A, B, C, D and E, as noted in Materials section (or as desired).
  •   Due to finite amount of yarn in each shade, pattern gauge must be matched to ensure successful results.
  •  When working from charts, carry yarn not in use loosely across WS of work, but never over more than 5 sts. When it must pass over more than 5 sts, weave it over and under color not in use. The colors are never twisted around one another.
Step 2

With A and set of smaller double-pointed needles, cast on 72 sts. Divide sts evenly over 3 needles (24-24-24). Join in rnd, placing marker on first st.

Rnds 1 to 10: *K2. P2. Rep from * around. Break A.

Change to B and larger set of needles.

Knit 8 rnds even.

Knit rnds 1 to 16 of Chart, reading rnds from right to left, noting 8-st rep will be worked 9 times.

Break A, B, C and D.

With E, knit 1 rnd.

With E, shape top as follows:

Rnd 1: *K8. Center Dec. K7. Rep from * around. 64 sts.

Rnd 2 and Alt Rnds: Knit.

Rnd 3: *K7. Center Dec. K6. Rep from * around. 56 sts.

Rnd 5: *K6. Center Dec. K5. Rep from * around. 48 sts.

Rnd 7: *K5Center Dec. K4. Rep from * around. 40 sts.

Rnd 9: *K4. Center Dec. K3. Rep from * around. 32 sts.

Rnd 11: *K3. Center Dec. K2. Rep from * around. 24 sts.

Rnd 12: *K2tog. Rep from * around. 12 sts.

Break yarn, leaving a long end. Thread end through rem sts and draw up tightly. Fasten securely.


Pom-Pom: Wind rem yarn of all shades around 4 fingers approx 20 times. Remove from fingers and tie tightly in center. Cut through each side of loops. Trim to a smooth round shape. Sew to top of hat.
