Twisted Sash Hat – Crafting with Corona VII

I LOVE small projects that can be made with one hank of yarn. This one was particularly pleasant. The hat is knitted entirely in ribbing which make for a nice snug fit regardless of slight differences in head circumference. The sash is knitted by picking up stitches on the side of the hat. Afterwards it is twisted and secured with a button. It sits very nicely and comfortably. Even without the sash, this will be a winner.

If no model is available, a big bottle, upside down on top of my mannequin will have to do! This was my husband’s creativity when I couldn’t think of any way to photograph this nicely.


  • 100 g Fingering weight yarn (±400 m / 100 g)
  • 3.5 mm circular knitting needles
  • 1 decorative button
  • wool needle


  • k – knit
  • p – purl
  • k2tog – knit two together
  • k2tog-bl – knit two together through the back loops
  • p2tog – purl two together
  • pm – place marker
  • rep – repeat
  • slk – slip the next stitch knit-wise


Cast on 120 sts, join to knit in the round, use a marker to indicate the start and end of each round.

Rnd 1:       
*k1, p1, rep from * to end of round.

Repeat rnd 1, 49 times more – 50 rounds.

Rnd 51:     
*continue in single rib for 15 sts, pm, rep from * to end of rnd.

Rnd 52:     
*k2tog-bl, continue in single rib up to m, p2tog, continue single rib up to m, rep from * to end of rnd

Repeat round 52 until you have 3 sts between two markers – 24 sts in total.

Cut a long tail. With a wool needles, thread the tail twice through all the stitches, pull it tight to close the opening and weave away the tail on the inside.

Twisted Sash:

Pick up stitches along on of the ribbing ladders, from row 10 up to row 39 – 30 stitches in total.

Row 1:
slk1, k until 1 st remains, p1

Repeat row 1 until the sash is 65 cm long. Then shape it as follows:

Row 1:
slk1, k2tog-bl, k until 3 sts remain, k2tog, p1

Repeat row 1 until you have only 4 sts left, cast off.

Twist the sash 5 times and secure it on top of the start of the sash with a decorative button.

Klein projekte wat met een string jaarn gemaak kan word, is vir my heerlik. Ek het hierdie een besonder baie geniet. Die hoed word regdeur in rifsteek gebrei, wat help dat dit verskillende kopgroottes steeds gerieflik pas. Die band word gebrei deur steke langs die kant van die hoed op te tel. Draai dit dan soos ‘n koeksister en werk met die knoop vas. Dit sit lekker knus en gemaklik. Selfs sonder die band is hierdie hoed ‘n wenner.


  • 100 g sokkiejaarn (±400 m / 100 g)
  • 3.5 mm sirkelbreinaalde
  • 1 dekoratiewe knoop
  • wolnaald


  • r – regs
  • aw – aweregs
  • r2tes – regs 2 tesame
  • r2tes-al – regs 2 tesame deur die agterlusse
  • aw2tes – aweregs 2 tesame
  • her – herhaal
  • gl – glip die volgende steek asof jy dit regs sou brei
  • pm – plaas merker
  • rdte – rondte


Stel 120 steke op en heg om in die rondte te brei. Gebruik ‘n steekmerker om die begin en einde van die rondte aan te dui.

Rdte 1:       
*r1, aw1, her van * tot einde.

Herhaal rondte 1 nog 49 keer – 50 rondtes.

Rdte 51:     
*Brei voort in enkelrib vir 15 ste, pm, her van * tot einde.

Rdte 52:
*r2tes, brei voort in enkelrib tot by m, aw2tes, brei voort in enkelrib tot by m, her van * tot einde.

Herhaal rondte 52 totdat jy 3 steke tussen 2 merkers het – 24 steke in totaal.

Knip ‘n lang stert. Ryg die stert twee keer deur al die steke, trek die gaatjie toe en werk die stert aan die binnekant weg.

Gedraaide band

Tel steke op teen een van die ‘leertjies’ van die rifsteek, vanaf ry 10 tot by ry 39 – 30 steke in totaal – sien foto bo.

Ry 1:
gl1, r tot 1 st oorbly, aw1

Herhaal ry 1 totdat die band 65 cm lank is. Vorm dan soos volg:

Ry 1:
gl1, r2tes-al, r tot 3 ste oorbly, r2tes, p1.

Herhaal ry 1 totdat daar vier steke oor is, heg af.

Draai die band vyf keer en gebruik die knoop om dit bo-op die begin van die band vas te werk.
