 Noro Hat by Saartje de Bruijn (this pattern is free)
Yarn: Rozetti Panco, worsted 10 ply, 100% soft acrylic (very similar to Vanna’s choice) 100gr / 224 yard (205 meters)
Color: Dark Purple, 1/2 ball , Lavender 1/2 ball
Needles: don’t know exactly probably 6mm or 7mm, gauge : 13 stitches to 4″ (10cm)

I had this hat on my “ravelry favorites” for a while. I wasn’t planning to knit it anytime soon though, at least until next fall…
When we arrived at Eskisehir a few days ago… It would be nice to say we froze our rears off… the wind and the cold kicked our butts… of course, since we had spring in full swing back in Memphis and since I had no intentions to pack all winter, spring and summer clothes, we had no beanies for the kids… My MIL found a hat for my son, who has a huge head and would be fine with an adult size hat… my daughter on the other hand, refuses to wear hats and can only wear extra soft, loose hats, that she likes the colors of… again, she is only 2, but she is a she like many people who read this blog and I am sure most could very well relate…

I knit this hat on 2 needles instead of the circular ones that the pattern calls for because I didn’t have my needles with me. We are visiting my in laws and I didn’t bring all my needles. I felt like a chef without my own knives…

I had to knit it quickly, so I held 2 strands together of this worsted weight yarn and knitted with the largest needles in my MIL needle stash. The needles were really old and I wasn’t able to read the size. They were made in UK and in mint shape… it is bad for my blog, but good for the project. I got 13 stitches to 4” (10cm). I actually didn’t gauge my work first -I know, I know put me in knitting jail this time-, and I made a hat for my daughter’s baby doll instead (see below picture)… I wonder if I learned my lesson about gauging yet, please remind me next time when I screw up a day’s worth of work…
baby_hat2My daughter’s head circumference is 50cm and I cast on 65 for her hat.
For the doll’s hat, I cast on 40 which is perfect size for a newborn (this doll is huge and I am pretty sure it will fit a newborn). Again, don’t forget, I held 2 strands together and got 13 stitches to 4”.

I knit 4 rows, purled 4 rows with the same color ( 8 rows per color) per original directions. This pattern is so simple, yet very clever and looks amazing.

My daughter is one of those toddlers who refuses to wear hats, so far she loved this hat, because it’s a bit loose on her head without falling on her eyes…

The yarn that I used was purchased by my husband’s aunt here at the local yarn store and is almost identical to Vanna’s Choice. It might very well be from the factory who makes Vanna’s choice, since that’s also made in Turkey.

The last modification I made was I made decreases early on and more agressively. I started after 32 rows. First I decreased twice on alternating rows, then on every row. Again, I used 2 needles and knew that the “beehive” effect wasn’t going to happen… All I needed to knit was 40 rows on 2 needles…

I am pretty happy with how this pattern turned out. And will make more with using DK weight and circular needles…

 Noro Hat  Saartje de Bruijn (this model Sarrtjenin sitesinde ucretsiz)
Yun: Rozetti Panco, 100% akrilik 100gr / 205 metre
Renk: Koyu mor, 1/2 yumak , Lavanta 1/2 yumak
Sis: Kendim sisim olmadigindan emin degilim ancak 6mm veya 7mm
Ornek model: 13 ilmek duz orguyle 10 cm’e denk geliyor.

Bu sapka uyesi oldugum ravelry sitesinde uzun zamandir, favori modellerimin arasindaydi. Acikcasi, onumuzdeki sonbahara kadar ormeyi planlamiyordum.

3-4 gun once Eskisehir’e geldik. Yani, “soguktan popomuz dondu” desem kibarlik olur… Soguk ve ruzgar anamizi aglatti. Tabii ki Amerika’dan zaten cocuklarin tum baharlik ve yazliklarini getirdigimden, bir de kisliklarini koymadim, onumuz bahar diye… Sogukta oglum icin kayinvalidem bir sapka buldu. Zaten koca kafa oldugu icin buyuk sapkalari ona hemen hemen oluyor. Kizimiza gelince, zaten sapka giyme kavramina cok karsi. Bir de nadir durumlarda giyerse, illa super yumusak olacak, kafasini sikmayacak kadar bol olacak ama gozune dusmeyecek, bir de modelini begenecek. “Yahu bu cocuk daha 2 yasinda” demeyin. Bu sitenin cogu okuyucusu gibi o da sonucta bir disi varlik… eminim siz de kendinizi onun yerine koyabilirsiniz…

Bu sapkayi modelin onerdigi gibi, misinali sisle ormedim, cunku yanimda sislerim yoktu. Acikcasi kendimi bicaklarimi unutmus sef gibi hissettim…

Cabucak ormem gerektigimden, yumaklari ikiye ayirdim ve iki ipi beraber tutarak ordum. Sis numarasini tam veremedigim icin ozur dilerim… ancak Amerikan sis numarasi sistemine alistigimdan Turkiye’deki sisin uzerinde yazan 6 mi, 9 mu? Bunun yaninda milim midir, numara midir bilemedim… sanirim 6-7 mm gibi bilir sis olacaktir. Ornek modelde , duz orguyle 13 ilmek 10 cm olacak… Itiraf ediyorum, her zamanki inatciligimla ilk basta ornek yapmadim ve de ilk yaptigim sapka kizimin dogumgununde aldigi cirkin bebegin kafasina oldu… Bu sene ucuncu defa “ornek” yapmadigimdan iki gunluk isim bosa gidiyor. Bu da bana ders olmadiysa daha ne diyim…

baby_hat1

Kizimin kafasinin capi 50cm -olcme islemi de biraz zor oldu, yaklasik olarak 50 cm diyelim)… 65 ilmek basladim.
Kucuk bebegin sapkasi icin, 40 ilmek basladim. Acikcasi, yeni dogan ya da 3 aylik bebege tam olacak boyutta bir sapka. Unutmayin, yunu cift ip tutacaksiniz, ve 13 ilmek 10 cm olacak… Benim gibi ornek yapmamaya inat edip, kucucuk bebelerin kafasina dar sapkalari gecirmeye calismayin lutfen..

Modelde tarif edildigi gibi ayni renkle 4 sira duz, 4 sira ters ordum. (her renk 8 sira)… bunun disinda modelin hicbir zahmeti yok… cok basit, ancak duz orgulerin iceri kivrilip, modele derinlik kazandirmasindan dolayi akillica bir model…

Modelde son yaptigim degisiklik, kesmelerime daha erken baslamam ve daha sikca yapmam. Kesmelere 32. siradan sonra basladim. Once 2 sirada 1, sonra her sirada kesmeleri yaptim. Cift sisle ordugumde orjinal modeldeki “ari kovani” etkisi pek olmadi… ustu daha duz ve kalpak gibi oldu. hat_4

Sapka-antipatisi-olan kizim bile begendi bu sapkayi… Acikcasi bu kadar kisa zamanda bitmis bir proje olarak ben de memnun kaldim. Daha ince iple ve sislerle, baska renkler yapmayi planliyorum insallah… Mesela sari-kirmizi renklerde guzel bir bere ortaya cikacagini dusunuyorum 🙂

One response to “Beehive hat… (ari kovani sapka)

  1. Thank you so much for your post on My Halal Kitchen. I really appreciate you taking the time as well as putting forth your idea for the karniyarik.
    So, i’ve now come to your site and find that you can knit- a favorite past time of mine which I don’t make much time for anymore b/c of all th cooking and writing 😦 I’ve always wanted to learn how to make things like hats and gloves instead of just scarves, so I think I’ll have to follow you for that! Thank you!
