It's so ridiculous to even call this a pattern, but i have to share knitting easiness with the world!
here is a hat i made up by accident & necessity while waiting in an airport. i had grabbed a ball of yarn (Lion Brand Thick & Quick), i had bought it on sale to make kitty blankets for a local animal shelter. Foolishly i also grabbed my gi-normous size 19 needles, not realizing what an idiotic blanket that would make!!!!! Well, i was then at the airport with only that yarn and those needles and decided to see what i could do instead. i had time to kill, after all. You too can make an airport hat. A lot of yarn is left over, so you can make a small blanky for the shelter AND a hat! And it is so big-n-stretchy, it can be done FAST!
The Rough Guide to the Airport Hat:
CO 28-30 stitches with your big ole 19's
Knit in Seed Stitch until knitting measures 8 inches (more if you want less of a skullcap look)
first decrease row- K2 together, P2 together across row
Next row: Purl across
Next row: K2 together, P2 together across row
Last row: Purl across. leave a long tail of yarn, and pull the last row of knitting from the needle and thread the needle through every stitch. Pull tightly then stitch the seam together.
no guarantees- i'm a shoddy recorder. but let me know if you try it and if it works out for you! (See pictures below)
