Pattern Details:

As Cornelius Fudge puts it in J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix: “‘We haven’t got time to listen to more taradiddles, I’m afraid, Dumbledore.’”, the word TaraDiddle means a silly fib, or pretentious nonsense.

I’m hoping you’ll find the hat just as fun to knit as word TaraDiddle is to say - and that’s no lie!!

The pattern is a fast knit with easy to remember repeats, making it great for travel knitting or when you’re looking to kick back and Knitflix & Chill. Plus, the individual sets of written instructions for both fingering weight & DK weight yarn, for which the details of each are outlined below, gives you lots of options so you can knit the hat you love.

Yarn:

Fingering approx. 60g /240 yds fingering weight yarn. Sample yarn is Hypnotic Yarn Treat Your Feet Base 80% Superwash Merino / 20% Nylon; 400 yds per 100g skein; colorway Feelin’ Groovy; 1 skein.

DK approx. 60g /140 yds DK weight yarn. Sample yarn is Hypnotic Yarn Plump Merino DK Base 100% Superwash Merino; 231 yds per 100g skein; colorway Victorian Hair Pin; 1 skein.

Needles:

DK 23 sts and 32 rnds = 4” (10 cm) in 2x2 rib, blocked.
