Little hat pins

Remember the hats and mitten ornament post I did?  You can see it here...http://jennicanknit.blogspot.com/2011/11/hat-and-mittens-ornament.html
I decided to make little hat pins for the hockey moms on Olivia's team.

I made 13 pins out of 2 balls of cascade 220 yarn.

These are so easy... here is the pattern:
Cast on 26.  I used size 6 needles.  You can use a magic loop or double points.
Knit stripes for rows 1-12.
Row 13 decrease 4 = 22 stitches
Row 14 knit
Row 15 decrease 4 = 18 stitches
Row 16 knit
Row 17 decrease 4 = 14 stitches
Row 18 decrease 4 = 10 stitches
Row 19 decrease 4 = 6 stitches
Cut yarn, using a needle, draw the yarn through the remaining stitches.  Add a pompom and you are done!

Stitch on the numbers using a running stitch.  Add the pin back with needle and thread.  Wear with pride to your kid's game!


  1. I would make my kids be on a hockey team with yours just so I could get a hat! And, seriously, who cares if my kids are boys who have already graduated??? If it would get me a waaaaaay cute hat, I'd be all over it!

  2. I love these! What a great idea. Thank you.
