STROOPWAFEL


by Jared Flood

“The delicate textures of this all over garter rib remind me of the gentle gridded surfaces of my favorite coffee-hour sweet, the Dutch stroopwafel. This squishy, seamless hat is comfortable and stylish. With sizes provided for newborn through adult, you can knit one for every member of the family.” 

– Jared Flood

Product description

The double-layered hat is worked seamlessly from start to finish in a single piece. Starting from 12 stitches, the hat begins with the Increase Crown (this will be the crown of the inner layer when the hat is worn). Next, a knit-even section is worked to the required length for your chosen size. Finally, the Decrease Crown is worked to mirror the shaping of the Increase Crown.

The completed hat resembles an elongated egg. Folding the hat at the halfway point, the Increase Crown is inverted into the Decrease Crown to complete your double-layered cap. The watchcap can be styled with or without a folded brim, as wearer prefers.
