Knitting materials and knitting tools:

<> Straight needles and circular needles, size 9 mm (US 13/UK 0)

<> Lion Brand Wool, Ease Thick & Quick – 20% wool, 80% acrylic. Color of your choice. In total 130 grams with yarn pom pom.

Knit hat size:

Adult/Teen: 53-56 (57-58) cm

Gauge: 10 stitches in = 4 inches in stockinette

Common abbreviations of knitting stitches:

k – knit

p – purl

k2tog – knit two together

skpo – Slip, Knit, Pass Over: Slip one stitch to the right needle knitwise, knit in the next stitch and drop this stitch off the left needle, insert the left needle into the slipped stitch, pass it over the knit stitch and it’s done

sel s – selvage stitch: always slip the first stitch purlwise, work to the last stitch, purl the last stitch

Body of the red riding hood hat:

Using long tail method cast on 40 (44) stitches or any other number divisible by 4.

Row 1: sel s, [k1, p1] – repeat till the end of row, sel s, turn.

Row 2-12: repeat Row 1.

Now we are going to join to knit in the round. Place marker and star knitting in the round.

Round 1: knit all stitches around. There will be no selvage stitches anymore.

Round 2-18: repeat Round 1 or until piece measures 18-19 cm from the edge.

Shaping crown of the red hood riding hat:

Round 1: [skpo, k6, k2tog] – repeat 4 times.

Round 2: knit all stitches around.

Round 3: [skpo, k4, k2tog] – repeat 4 times.

Round 4: knit all stitches around.

Round 5: [skpo, k2, k2tog] – repeat 4 times.

Round 6: knit all stitches around.

Round 5: [skpo, k2tog] – repeat 4 times.

Round 6: knit all stitches around.

Cut the yarn leaving 10 cm and thread onto tapestry needle. Draw the tail through remaining stitches and pull taut to close the hat. Weave in ends. Attach your favourite fur or yarn pom pom.

Braided Ties:

Cut 6 strands of yarn each with a length of 85-90 cm. Fold in half (you should have now 12 strands to braid with). Using hook pass through first or last stitch. Make knot and braid leaving last 7-8 cm. Knot and trim ends. Repeat for the second tie.

So cute. Made as written except a yarn substitute to LB Hometown USA in Sioux City Tweed and used a ready made Pom. That skein was 64 yards and I only had 6 inches of waste yarn…used the entire skein entirely. Beanies always seem to want to slip off my head but not this one. This would be perfect for little kids. Thank you for sharing.

Loved this pattern from first sight! Made one, turned out perfectly. I too suffer from beanies slipping off my head, but not the red riding hood hat. I used a bulky yarn from hobby lobby called Ultraluxe in charcoal. C.O. 40 & very happy w results! Thank you!
