Product description

“My mother’s side of the family hails from Sweden, and I love Swedish names that honor my roots. Öljett is Swedish for “eyelet” or “grommet”, and this hat gets its name from the beautiful eyelets created by the uncomplicated crown shaping pattern. The clean, simple design of the hat allows the marled yarn to take focus and shine; as a bonus, working with Loft doubled creates a very cozy fabric.” – Jenny Gordy

  • Pattern Updates

    25 July 2012: Version 2.0

    The written instructions for Crown Shaping have been edited for clarity. The 3-row shaping sequence was re-written as a 6-row shaping sequence. The updated shaping instructions read as follows:

    Round 1 (Decrease Round 1; Marker Placement): *Knit 2 together (hereafter referred to as k2tog), yarn over, k2tog, knit 8, Slip Slip Knit (hereafter referred to as SSK), yarn over, SSK, place marker; repeat from * to the end of round (omitting final marker placement, as beginning-of-round marker is already on needle).  Upon completion of this round, you will have placed 6 markers and decreased 12 stitches total; 84 stitches remain after first instance of this round is worked.

    Rounds 2 & 3: Knit all stitches in round.

    Round 4 (Decrease Round): *K2tog, yarn over, k2tog, knit until 4 stitches remain before next marker, SSK, yarn over, SSK, slip marker; repeat from * to the end of round. 12 stitches decreased.

    Rounds 5 & 6: Knit all stitches in round.

    Repeat Rounds 4-6 three more times, slipping the markers when you encounter them and changing to DPNs when necessary.

    Upon completion of this section, you will have decreased a total of 60 stitches (12 stitches per every Decrease Round); 36 stitches remain on your needle.
