Peargirl Oregon Ducklings in a Row Baby Hat
A sweet little hat for the youngest of Oregon Duck fans, or if you’re not a fan, just turn the “O” into a little sun hovering above each duckling by filling in the extra stitch! The hat is knit with 2 colors using Fair Isle technique, and the details are added when the hat is complete using duplicate stitch.
Materials: ♥ Version 1 pictured above: Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino (137 yds/50 g) – 1 skein Main Color (MC), 1 skein Contrast Color (CC), and small amounts of yarn in dark yellow, orange and black to be used for duplicate stitch for wings, beaks, eyes and “O”.
Version 2 pictured on page 4: Sirdar Snuggly Baby Bamboo (104 yds/50g) – 1 skein MC, 1 skein CC, and embroidery floss in dark yellow, orange, and black for duplicate stitch.
♥ Needles – One 16” 3.25 mm (#3 US) or 3.50 mm (#4 US) circular needle, and one set of 4 or 5 double point needles (DPN) in same size, or appropriate size to achieve gauge
♥ Tapestry needle for weaving in ends
♥ Stitch Marker
Gauge: 24 stitches per 4” in Stockinette St. I used size #3 US needles for Version 1 and #4 US needles for Version 2 to achieve gauge.
Size: 18-19 inch head circumference, but with some thoughtfulness this can be adjusted by increasing the number of stitches between ducklings or changing yarn weight.
