Not another Weasley Hat
Inspired by the Weasley family and Sophie.
The Weasley’s always have the coolest knit items. Thanks to Molly and her needles! Ron and his famous ‘R’ sweater and all the hats he wears. When I think of the twins I think of the different knitted fair isle hats they wear in Hogsmeade. I decided that Ginny needed a girly version. My HSS2 pal Sophie told me that she is absolutely nutters for argyle… Voila, this hat was born! Its worked from the top down with a cool brim that is a double layer to keep your ears nice and toasty warm!

*K2tog yo* (this forms the picot edge where the brim folds)
Fold your work at the picot edge wrong sides in
BO as follows:
Find the last row of the MC; it will be a row of purl bumps. With your left needle pick up the first bump and knit it and the first st on the left needle together. Pick up the next bump and k it together with the first st on the left needle. You now have two worked Sts on the right needle. Slip the right st over and off of the needle to BO. Continue in this manner until all of the Sts are BO. Pull the yarn through the last st to secure.
Weave in all ends.
Make a pom pom, whatever size you prefer, and attach it to the top of the hat. Or opt not to
make one at all.
Block you hat and Enjoy!
A note to all the Hogwarts students:
As I've said in previous posts, this was my first attempt at fair isle, I know it doesn't look the best, but If you're experienced, just think how yours will look! House colors maybe?!
