KNIT-CROCHET STITCHES USED†
Stockinette stitch: knit 1, purl 1

We decided to use the stockinette stitch, just like we did for the blanket. Our Miss Noodle is so nice as it is, itís not necessary to use tricky stitches. Less is more!

METHOD
Cast on 18 stitches and work the stockinette stitch for 11 rows. Then decrease the crown as follows, keeping in mind that the decrease is done on the right side of the work.

row 12: knit 1, knit 2 together and repeat for the whole row
row 13: purl
row 14: repeat the row 12
row 15: repeat the row 13
Bind off by inserting the stitches above the thread.

Sew up the hat.

And thatís it! Iíd say thereís still time leftover for our oversized cardigan. Letís go on then!

Itís simple but itís got that spark about it, sufficiently oversized (if not what kind of giant knitting would it be?) comfy and not to mention how warm and soft it is. All thanks to the Alpaca which our Miss Noodle is made with.

Shall we change colour and make another one?
