SOCK YARN CIRCULAR HAT for Passap Duomatic Knitting Machine or any knitting machine that knits circular. Sock Yarn, 100 gm. Suggested: Berroco Sox, Online Supersocke 100, Fortissima Socka, or yarns that are approx 420 metre/100gm. Cast-on using CX/CX. (setting for circular knitting on the Passap) For use on other knitting machines, follow your machine manual for settings. Setup needles for 1x1, 50 needles EON,(25-0-25) on BOTH beds. Knit:CX/CX at a fairly tight tension(#2) Knit 2 rows. Increase the tension as for stockinette. Mine was 5.5 Put every needle into work and knit “circular”(CX/CX) (50 needles on each bed) When the 100 gm is almost all used up, MOVE every other stitch to its neighbour, Tighten up the stitch size. KNIT a row or 2. Close up the top by running yarn through the stitches to gather and finish.(use a bodkin/single eye needle) The result is a rolled brim and a gathered top. Feel free to knit and share with my design credit.
