Warm Winter Wool Roving Hat with flower.

My friend graciously model the hat.

Knit a band, any width, any stitch. When it is long enough to fit around the head, cast off.

 

Pick up stitches from the long side to knit the body of the hat. I used 60 stitches + 2 stitches for seaming. A total of 62.

Knit the body in any chosen pattern that is a multiple of 60. The seaming stitches should be stockinette for a nice almost invisible look.

The body depth is your choice. Some like a slouch, others a snug fit.

 

 

The Crown Shaping can be knit in many different ways, to any chosen depth. Most techniques books will provide choices.

 

 

 

The flower motif is from a very old knitting pattern. Sew the side seam and attach the flower.
