Rosebud Dragon

This warm hat is a quick knit and a perfect gift for your loved ones or a treat for yourself. Knit in your favourite flashy colors on a neutral background, it makes your beloved gradient or variegated yarns take center stage. The relaxed fit of this hat makes it a good choice for everyday wear. The stitch pattern features long floats that are caught a few rows later and give an impression of flower petals or dragon scales.

The finished hat will be about 48cm (19’’) in circumference at the brim, unstretched, and 22cm (9’’) tall (blocked measurements).

One size fits all! The size given here fits adult women and men alike. The hat has a rather loose fit on the top, yet a stretchy ribbing to keep it in place. If you would like to make the hat smaller or larger or accomodate a different gauge, be sure to cast on a multiple of 6 stitches, then nothing can go wrong. The only place you need to change the numbers will be the crown decreases.

This pattern has been test knit.
