the Sisters Hat

I don't really think of myself as a designer, but I do like to invent simple patterns from time to time. It's a fun exercise to write them up and share them here. At the very least, I'll know where they are if I should ever misplace my scribbled notebook.  This pattern for the Sisters Hat has been test-knitted and proofread for clarity and typos by my cousin, Mitzi Miles-Kubota, who is a fine knitter, a self described "word nerd," and a mega-talented fine artist and crafter. She does it all, and she gave this the thumbs up. I wish you happy hat-making. Sisters Hat Knit from the bottom up, in the round, this is a fast and easy hat that works up in just a few hours. I designed it on a fun weekend spent with my two sisters, planning baby sis’s wedding. The hat fits my approximately 22 inch head on a very curly day. Check your gauge, measure your head, make adjustments as needed. Stitches used: K = Knit P = Purl K2tog = Knit 2 toge
