I’ve been neglecting you for my newest hat design. But its a very special hat, absurdly long and absurdly colorful.
I had a blast working up this pattern and I just didn’t want to stop to do anything else. So now that its done I have two things to do: lots of laundry, and post a free download code so my lovely readers can snag a copy for themselves for nothing.
- Head over to ravelry for the pattern.
- Add it to your cart.
- Enter in this coupon code: Bundle-Me
- Get that done before noon (US Central Time) on Wednesday Jan 27th, 2016.
You’ll need two colors to make this hat. I used Red Heart Soft in White (about 500 yds) for the main color and Red Heart Unforgettable in Stained glass (about 450 yds) for the contrast color. The pattern includes two sizes… for the head circumference. But not for the length, lol. A super long hat that I could wear wrapped around me like a scarf was the whole point!
Its perfect. Its like wearing a cloud.
The Bundler is about 5.5 feet (1.6 meters) of stranded knit colorwork in the round. I do love stranded knitting done in the round. It always feels so fast, like I’m knitting up a storm. Its possible that I’m knitting just as slow as I usually do but the color patterns turning up on my needles feels like awesome progress. It keep me entertained and happy and up late into the night knitting.
And who doesn’t want a hat that’s taller than you?* No one. Make yours out of something soft and warm and get bundled up.
* Okay so I’m a bit short and maybe this hat won’t be taller than you. But its is mighty tall. I betcha it will be the tallest hat you own.

Thanks, Jenn! I have to make this hat-ish thing and I don’t like to wear hats. This may be the start of something good.
It could be the start of something very, very good! If it helps, you can pop the hat off your head anytime and then its hangs like a scarf, which is what I do when I go indoors. I leave it on around my neck all day long of course cuz I’m cold-wimpy and don’t care who knows it.
Ohhh. Have family stuck in NYC. Will have to make this–not quite as long, but long enough–so they will survive! Thank you! May have to make a smaller version for the granddaughter in Georgia, too….hmmmm.
I bet your poor east coast relatives wish they had them right now. BRRR! I feel clod just looking at all those snow/disaster pictures on the news.
Jenn, it is beautiful. So practical, too. You only need to keep track of one thing instead of two when going out in the cold. Thank you so much for giving us the pattern:)
Yes. What you just said. yes. I am very bad at keeping track of regular scarfs (which is why I make cowls) This one I can hang onto because its attached to my head. That may sound silly but its so true.
OMG that looks awesome! I can’t wait to make one 🙂
Waving at ya Rae! How’s the baby coming? Almost time?
37 weeks today 🙂 Midwife predicts anytime between Feb 2nd and March 11th. Getting excited! (And not too miserable yet, other than the lingering cold)
I bet you are super excited! And what do you mean you’re still sick??? No one should have to be heavily pregnant and sick at the same time. That is just patently unfair.
Poor You! I have no patience. None. Hang in there and don’t let them induce.
When I try to look no the bright side, you have more time to knit and maybe sleep.
We are planning a homebirth so there is very little chance anyone will try to induce, and even if they wanted to without a very, very, *very* good reason I wouldn’t let them anyway.
Good. Hang in there!
Oh yay! You’re such a quick knitter you could have one done in no time at all. And then I’ll get to see it which is almost as fun.
If I had yarn to use (and I’ll have to check) I’d start now and take a break from my Hue Shift (which I have been contemplating doing all day, it’s getting a little tedious). It would be my first ever piece of stranded work, so it might end up looking wonky, but its a hat/scarf, so who would really notice 😉
It might be an ambitions first stranded knit but with the way its worn, all wrapped, it hides many a flaw. I say go for it! But… then I stopped on my own Hue Shift Afghan to make this hat so I might not be completely objective.
FANTASTIC !!! Years ago, we called those hats “stocking caps”. I love the extra long version, and the beautiful colourwork too. Yes…I am Canadian, and that is how we spell colour. 😉 Lucky me. I am taller than this hat is long, so it won’t drag on the ground, if I do not wrap it. Thanks SO MUCH for the free pattern. Your work is beautiful, as always.
So glad you like it! Yes, I wanted an old-school stocking cap, really long, and pretty. That is just the kind of hat I’ve wanted for months and now I have one. I know its unusual and may not appeal to everyone but.. ehh. Knitters are supposed to be quirky right? Right.
