Unbearable Hat

Techniques used in the pattern

Centered double decrease

Step 1: Slip two stitches from the left needle to the right, as if to knit them together.
Step 2: Knit one stitch.
Step 3: Pass the slipped stitches over the knitted stitch, as if to cast off.

 

Duplicate stitch

Step 1: Cut a length of yarn and thread it onto a tapestry needle.
Step 2: Bring your needle from the back of the work to the front through the middle of a stitch, or between the “V”, leaving a tail in the back so you can weave it in at the end.
Step 3: Cross the needle under the stitch over the one you are duplicating.
Step 4: To finish that stitch, insert the needle back into the middle of the “V” (the same place where you began).
Step 5: Repeat steps 1 to 4 until you have made the required number of duplicate stitches.

 

German twisted cast-on

The German twisted cast-on, also called the Old Norwegian cast-on, is a stretchy cast-on. To estimate how much yarn to use, wrap the tail around your head 4 times. 

 

Whip stitch

Step 1: Cut a length of yarn and thread it onto a tapestry needle.
Step 2: Align your pieces, right sides together.
Step 3: Going through both pieces of fabric (front and back), bring your needle from once side to other, and pull through, leaving a tail.
Step 4: Repeat the same motion until you are finished your seam.
