Honeycomb (aka Newfie) knitted hat

I've made a few pair of Honeycomb (aka Newfie) mittens lately and was wondering what a hat (I've never knitted a hat) using the same pattern and colour would look like.  So I convert a mitten pattern into a hat and here it is ...


I used black Red Heart Super Saver 4 ply yarn as my main colour (A), Red Heart Super Saver (Berry) 4 ply yarn as my second colour (B) and 5mm circular and then double pointed needles.

Since the pattern in multiples of six, I cast on 108 stitches with A.  I knit 1, purl 1 for 12 rows.

Pattern
  1.  *Knit 4 with B, slip 2 purlwise with A*, repeat to the end of row
  2. Repeat this row 4 more times (5 in total)
  3. Purl 2 rows with A
  4. Knit 1 with B, * slip 2 purlwise with A, knit 4 with B*, repeat to the last three stitches, knit 3 with B
  5. Repeat this row 4 more times (5 in total)
  6. Purl 2 rows with A
I did this four times (so eight rows of colour).

To shape the top ...
  • Knit one round
  • *Knit 4, knit 2 together*; repeat to end of round
  • Knit one round
  • *Knit 3, knit 2 together*; repeat to end of round
  • Knit one round
  • *Knit 2, Knit 2 together*; repeat to end of round
  • Knit one round
  • *Knit 1, knit 2 together*; repeat to end of round
  • Knit one round
  • *Knit 1, knit 2 together*; repeat to end of round
  • Knit one round. 
  • *Knit 2 together*; repeat to end of round
  • *Knit 2 together*; repeat to end of round
  • Cut yarn leaving a 6 inch tail
  • Thread the yarn through the remaining six stitches and pull tight
  • Weave in all ends
