Spiral HatsSome time ago I saw a TV program with a charming knitter showing how she made hand knit spiral hats. I thought I bet this could be done on a knitting machine. So I got out my trusty LK 150 mid-gauge and played around with it.
Because there was a lot of turning of the fabric I chose my garter bar to make things easier. That said, one could easily do the same with a circular needle or waste yarn.
Below are a couple of hats I made when practicing the pattern
Here is one by a fellow machine knitter (Roz Porter) made along with a matching scarf - So pretty.
I can't remember who made this one but isn't it pretty - Love the top
If you would like to give this little hat a try here is the pattern I came up with Spiral Hat Pattern
