Charity Pattern: No Hair Day Cap

This is a new pattern that I love. Actually, it's really just the yarn that makes the hat. It's called FIZZ and makes the hat look like real hair.

Charity Pattern: No Hair Day Cap

What you need

2 oz (50g) FIZZ yarn, 1 (2, 2) skeins
Size 9 (5.5mm) circular knitting needle
Size 9 double pointed knitting Needles or size needed to obtain gauge




Instructions

The FIZZ I used was made by S. R. Kertzer, but other companies make the same yarn and it can be used. This pattern is basically just straight knitting with decreasing rows at the to. The hat is worn purl side out. However, the yarn is such that probably any snug-fitting hat design would do.

The other thing I like about this hat is that it can be made in real hair colors or in fun bright colors like red and purple.

Size: Women’s small (21 inches), medium (22 inches), and large (23 inches)

Directions
Cast on 60 (66, 72) stitches. Join, being careful not to twist. Knit around until hat measures 6″ (6.5″, 7″) from beginning.
Decrease rounds:

Round 1: *Knit 8 (9, 10), k2tog;* repeat from * to end of round.
Rounds 2, 4, 6, and 8: Knit.
Round 3: *Knit 7 (8, 9), k2tog;* repeat from * to end of round.
Round 5: *Knit 6 (7, 8), k2tog;* repeat from * to end of round.
Round 7: *Knit 5 (6, 7), k2tog;* repeat from * to end of round.
Round 9: *Knit 4 (5, 6), k2tog;* repeat from * to end of round.
Round 10: *Knit 3 (4, 5), k2tog;* repeat from * to end of round.
Round 11: *Knit 2 (3, 4), k2tog;* repeat from * to end of round.
Round 12: *Knit 1 (2, 3), k2tog;* repeat from * to end of round.
Round 13:

For small hat: k2tog around.
For medium sized hat: knit 1, k2tog around.
For large hat: knit 2, k2tog around.
(For medium and large sized hats, continue decreasing until knitting 2tog around.)

Cut the yarn leaving a 10″ tail. Thread yarn through the remaining stitches. Fasten off on the knit side of the hat. Turn hat so that the purl side is on the outside.
