Sarah and Duck Hat Knitting Pattern

About this activity

If you have always envied Sarah's hat from the programme 'Sarah and Duck' then here is your chance to make your very own or maybe for your little one. This pattern is straight forward and quite achievable for people who are still new to knitting.

We hope you like this just for grown-ups make and we really look forward to seeing your results either on the CBeebies Grown-ups Facebook Page and via @CBeebiesHQ on Twitter.

Materials
75g of green aran-weight yarn
set of 4 x 5mm dpns, or one long 5mm circular

Size
This is for an adult size head with a hat circumference of approximately 55cm. To make this for a child the number of stitches would need to be reduced.

Gauge
20 st x 32 rows = 10 cm (adjust needle size to get gauge)

Instructions
Brim
Cast on 84 sts using a stretchy cast on (eg. long tail). Place marker and join to work in the round.
Purl 15 rounds.
Knit until hat measures about 15 cm from cast on edge. (You may need to adjust this to match the distance from just above your eyebrows to the top of your crown.)
