Divine Hat / Very Warm Hat Mashup

I did not design either the Divine Hat or the Very Warm Hat.  But I do believe I may have been the first to decide to put the both of them together, in an amazing combination of knitting and crochet skills.

I call my mashup the POLAR VORTEX HAT, because I’m from Chicago, and this hat is double warm and way cuter than EZ’s hat.  Way, way cuter.

These aren’t pro pictures or glamour shots, but I hope you get the idea anyway.

Without any further fanfare, here’s the (short version, cliff notes guide to the) pattern I used:

DIVINE HAT:

With J hook

MAGIC CIRCLE

15 DC

FPDC

3,4. FPDC, DC

5,6. FPDC, 2DC

7,8,9. FPDC, 3DC

10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16. FPDC, 4DC

SC

DC

VERY WARM HAT

NEEDLE: size 9 circular (16”) and size 7 DPNs. This is what I had on hand, so this is what I used.

Pick up 77 stitches from slip stitches above on circular needles / DPNs. Stitches should be divisible by 7.

Knit for 5 inches. Add a fair isle pattern if you want.

Decrease in seven pointed star pattern:

Decrease 7 st evenly spaced around.
Knit one round even.
Alternate decrease, knit round.

Keep going until 49 st remain.
Decrease 7 st every round.

Bind off stitches.
