Zombie Lunchbox Hat

Materials:

Worsted weight yarn

Youth: Size 3 and size 5 needles

Adult: size 6, 7 or 8 needles. Most people use size 5 for ribbing and 7 for body of hat. I’ve only made the youth size.

Tapestry needle for weaving in ends.

NOTES:

I’ve given you the number of stitches to be knit on each row BEFORE the lettering starts. The beginning of each round is actually the back center of the hat. So knit the number of stitches listed, then do the lettering on the chart from right to left, then knit to the end of the round.

PATTERN BEGINNING:

Cast on 84 sts in MC (main color) on #3 needles. If you’re using DPN’s, divide evenly (28 st’s on each needle)

Rows 1-10: work 2×2 rib [(k2, p2) repeat to end, every row]

Switch to #5 needles

Rows 11-13: knit all

CHART:

Rounds 14-25: work the chart (read every row from the right to the left starting at the bottom)

R14: K23, work lettering, knit to end

R15: K24, work lettering, knit to end

R16: K25, work lettering, knit to end

R17: K24, work lettering, knit to end

R18: K23, work lettering, knit to end

R19 & 20: knit even

R21: K30, work lettering, knit to end

R22: K32, work lettering, knit to end

R23: K31, work lettering, knit to end

R24: K32, work lettering, knit to end

R25: K30, work lettering, knit to end

You can now cut the yarn you are using for the lettering. Leave a long enough tail for weaving.

Rows 26-41: knit all in MC (16 rounds)

Row 42: (k10, k2tog) repeat to end [77 sts]

Row 43: knit all

Row 44: (k9, k2tog) repeat to end [70 sts]

Row 45: knit all

Row 46: (k8, k2tog) repeat to end [63 sts]

Row 47: knit all

Row 48: (k7, k2tog) repeat to end [56 sts]

Row 49: knit all

**Switch to double pointed needles (if you were using circulars) when it becomes too difficult on circulars

Row 50: (k2tog) repeat to end [28 sts]

Row 51: (k2tog) repeat to end [14 sts]

Row 52: (k2tog) repeat to end [7 sts]

Cut long tail, thread through remaining sts, pull to close, tie off.

 

FINISHING:

Weave in ends and enjoy!
