Free Zaggity Hat Pattern

    

      I decided I wanted to make a less girly hat to balance the eyeleted Ava Lynne hat, so here it is... Zaggity! I worked this up with sock weight yarn (2 strands held together) and worsted weight. I was able to get the same gauge with both yarn weights and size 5 dpns. The zaggity stitch pattern is basically a purl zig-zag with slip stitch borders.   

Enjoy!  




Zaggity

Gauge: 5st/inch & 7rows/inch in Zaggity Stitch
Needles: Size 5 double pointed needles, or size needed to obtain gauge.
                                You may also be able to use a circular needle for larger sizes.
Yarn: Debbie Norville, Serenity Garden (2 strands yeld together) or Red Heart Eco Ways
                                Any yarn/needle combo to obtain gauge will work. J

Stitches:

M1: pick up the bar between stitches and knit into the back of it.
