Leafy hat pattern

I made this pattern right after I figured out how to make leafy lace. I thought that maybe the tips of the leaves could make a nice top for a hat. It is a very fast pattern to make, and it is simple enough for those who are first learning to make lacy projects.

Worked in Lion brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick on 5 double pointed size 13 needles.

Cast on 56 stitches and distribute equally.

K1 P1 for 8 rounds.

Place marker at beginning if the row. yo = yarn over

R1: yo, K1, yo, P1 K4 (the ♥ means slip 2 as if to knit together, K1 pass slipped 2 over) K4 P1

R2: K3, P1, K9, P1 repeat to end

R3: K1, yo, K1, yo, K1, P1, K3,, K3, P1 repeat to end

R4: K5, P1, K7, P1 repeat to end

R5: K2, yo, K1, yo, K2, P1, K2,, K2, P1 repeat to end

R6: K7, P1, K5, P1 repeat to end

R7: K3, yo, K1, yo, K3, P1, K1,, K1, P1 repeat to end

R8: K9, P1, K3, P1 repeat to end

R 9: K4, yo, K1, yo, K4, P1,, P1 repeat to end

R10: K4,, K4, P2 together P1 repeat to end

R11: K9, P2 repeat to end

R12: K3,, K3, P2 repeat to end

R 13: K7, P2 repeat to end

R14: K2,, K2, P2 repeat to end

R15: K5, P2 repeat to end

R16: K1,, K1, P2 repeat to end

R17: K3, P2 repeat to end

R18: , P2 repeat to end

R19: K1, P2 repeat to end

Sew through stitches and pull in the top of the hat. Sew in ends.


  1. This is fantastic!! Nice Pattern :)

  2. I totally dig this big leaf pattern. Very hip.

  3. I love your leaf hat. I just started making my own from Malabrigo Rasta.

    Just one question though- what do the hearts mean? Like, what stitch is that?

  4. the hart is an abbreviation for the instruction in parentheses.

  5. Love this pattern!

    How big is this hat? I need about 23" in circumference, so I'm thinking about adding another 14 stitches (isn't that needed for one leaf?) just in case. My yarn and needles are smaller, too.

    If the hat ends up to e too big, I can always felt it a bit... ;)
