Valko’s hat with Paw stitch

Last week I finished a new hat for my son. I used the Paw stitch again and I love how it turned out. This will not be released as a pdf for sale, as I did not take extensive notes while knitting it, I am especially worried if I noted the hat crown correctly, but anyway, you can knit it with stockinette stitch :)). I just wanted to see what texture will Paw stitch make without any knitting stitches in between.

The hat is for age 5-6 and here is how I made it :

 

3.75 MM needles,
Worsted weight yarn
Cast on 80 stitches. Make a magic loop.
10 rows of 1×1 knit purl rib

16 row: knit entire row and do increases with 4 (92 st)
17 row: knit entire row
18 row: knit entire row and do increases with 4 (96 st)

  1. I love the look of this stitch, the texture looks like it would make for a great stashbusting hat project if you have a lot of yarn to get through! That way to bind off a hat is one I’ve never seen before either, it makes for a really appealing look.
