The Elk and Vine Hat

The Elk and Vine Hat

The knit Elk and Vine hat and cowl are inspired by velvet Elk antlers and the changing ombre colors of Fall. Elk like to nibble on Vine Maple year-round, so some elongated knit stitches were added to represent twigs and the changing of the seasons.

Needle Size for Hat: US 9/5.5mm 16” circular needles for the brim.

US 10/6mm 16” circular knitting needles for the body.

Yarn: Do you have just ONE skien of Lion Brand Scarfie Yarn? That's all you need. If not, use a light bulky or heavy worsted weight yarn. You will need 124 yards/113m (60g/2.1oz). The color I used for this hat is "Ice/Gold"

Gauge: 17 pattern stitches in a 4 inch (10cm) wide swatch | 2 horns can be measured from bottom of first to the top of the second in a 4 in (10cm) tall swatch

Final measurements and notes on fit: Hat should stand approximately 10 inches (25cm) tall and will fit children through average (22 inch/56cm) adult sized heads, with varying amount of slouch depending on the head size. Even my toddler has worn this hat!
