It would seem that quite a bit more yarn, but the earson the cap, which are obtained from this very yarn, can save you or your child from colds in cold weather. Here is an example of knitting a winter hat with ears for a child, but on the same principle, you can tie a hat to an adult. Just change the color scheme and take measurements. In total for such a cap you will need:
- Threads that you choose on your own (you can wool or wool);
- Spokes are hanging or circular;
- Crochet hook (to process the edges of the cap).
Our winter hat with "ears" for women will bedouble, so we will knit the outer and inner parts. In such cases, knitting always begins with the inside: the inner is sewn according to the measurements taken, and the outer one is sewn on the inside. Do not forget how many loops and where you knit. In the future it will help you in knitting an outer cap.
We type 7 loops on knitting needles, we sew several rows, adding loops (in each face row there are 2 loops each);
Making the "ear", you also need to count the number of loops, starting with the 7th. "Ears" caps, bound for a one-year-old child, have 7 loops from the bottom and 19 from the top;
We make the second "ear" on the same principle;
You type 10 loops on the spoke with the second eye and continue to knit, tying them together;
We knit the back of the cap with the wrong loops, turning the knitting (add a loop at each end of the cap);
We send a few more rows. To determine when to begin knitting the overhead part, try on the resulting cap on the head of the "dummy". As a "dummy" should be a man who knits a hat with ears with knitting needles
We perform the reception of "nakid" on the spoke (16 loops), we sew (from this moment it is possible to switch to circular knitting needles at will);
We knit the top of the cap, evenly reducing the loops.
When there are 4 loops left on the knitting needles, tighten them with a thread;
We knit the outer cap by the same principle, but increasing the number of all loops by two;
We turn out the inner cap, we put one into the other, we process the edges of the cap with a crochet to prevent seams (as in the picture).
Then only fantasy works. You can decorate your hat with ears pompon, pigtails. To complement the complete set with a scarf, gloves or even socks. All these and many other schemes with a description of knitting you can find on our website.
