Flowerpot Hat Free Pattern



Here is the free pattern as promised. I strung you along for over a week. That was fun!

FLOWERPOT HAT
Notions needed:
Size 10 or 11 circular needles 16" length
Size 8-10 double point needles
One stitch marker
Worsted to chunky weight yarn 150 yds
Your goal is 5 sts to the inch, chunkier the yarn, bigger the needles.

Directions:

Cast on 48 sts and knit in the round 6 rows. (I usually knit to the end of the row and place a marker and then join being careful not to twist the row when I join.)
Purl 6 rows slipping your marker at the beginning of each round.
