jacques cousteau hat


This chapeau was very boring to knit. Eight inches of straight ribbing in navy blue yarn before the crown shaping. At least the crown only took me one evening – I love ever decreasing circles!

Jacques Cousteau hat

Unfolded, it looks an odd shape. Kind of pointy.

Hmmm, the problem with taking photos of a hat on a white background is that I can’t see where the edge of my photo is!

This is the crown, modelled over a bowl. Four decreasing points. A rather unusual decreasing method – knit 1, knit 1, pass the first over the second. More like a bind off really.

I’m glad this is finished and I can move on to more colourful and enjoyable projects. 🙂

Specs: US #5 Denise interchangeables, 3.75mm dpns for the crown; Marks and Kattens Carolina, 100% acrylic yarn, two 50g skeins. Edited to add pattern link.

  1. Looks great! Just wondering if there was an exact pattern that was followed and if so, if you wouldn’t mind sharing it on here? Would love to make one just like it! 🙂

    Thanks in advance
