Aurora Knit Hat Pattern

The time has come to put your knowledge to test and knit a beautiful bulky hat using Aurora stitch. Knitting Aurora hat is easy, you just have to know the basics – knit, purl and get a refresher on selvage stitch, making it an excellent choice for beginners and those who loves to knit hats (like me). I highly recommend using bulky or super bulky yarn for this project to get it done faster and spend more time wearing your new hat outside. Enjoy last bits of Autumn Sun and keep physical distance. Stay safe and healthy!

Knitting materials and knitting tools:

<> Circular (40 cm) or double pointed knitting needles, size 9 (US 13/UK 0)

<> Lion Brand Wool, Ease Thick & Quick – 20% wool, 80% acrylic. Color of your choice. In total 140 grams.

Aurora hat size:

Adult: 54-58 cm

Gauge: 9-10 stitches in = 4 inches in stockinette

Common abbreviations of knitting stitches:

k – knit

p – purl

st(s) – stitch(es)

p2tog – purl two together

Body of Aurora knit hat pattern:

Using long tail method cast on 44 stitches or any other number divisible by 4. Place marker and join to knit in the round. Rib k1, p1 for 8 rows or until piece measures 6 cm

Round 1: [k3, slip next st with yarn in back] – repeat till the end of round.

Round 2: repeat Round 1.

Round3: [p1, k1, p1, k1] – repeat till the end of round.

Round 4: knit all stitches around.

Round 5: [ k1, slip the next st with yarn in back, k2] – repeat till the end of round.

Round 6: repeat Round 5.

Round 7: [p1, k1, p1, k1] – repeat till the end of round.

Round 8: knit all stitches around.

Repeat Rounds 1- 8 until hat measures 19 cm from the edge. In my case I repeat Rounds 1-8 two more times and then repeat again Rounds 1-4.

Shaping the crown of Aurora knit hat:

Round 1: [k2tog] – repeat till the end of round.

Round 2: [p1, k1, p1, k1] – repeat till the end of round.

Round 3: [k2tog] – repeat till the end of round.

Round 4: knit all stitches around

Break yarn and leave 10 cm tail. Thread end through remaining stitches and fasten securely. Weave in all ends securely.

Add yarn, faux or real fur pom pom.
