The Celtic Weave stitch takes center stage in this chunky winter hat. It is surprisingly easy to do and results in a beautiful texture you’ll love to wear again and again.

Gauge Swatch

With 5.5mm hook

  1. Ch 18. Dc in 4th ch from hook and each ch across. Turn.   – 16 st
  2. Ch3. *Sk 2 sts, fptr in next 2 sts. Fptr in 2 previously skipped sts.** Repeat from * to ** until 3 sts left. Fpdc in next 2 sts. Dc in last st. Turn.   – 16 st
  3. Ch3. *Sk 2 sts, bptr in next 2 sts. Bptr in 2 previously skipped sts.** Repeat from * to ** until 3 sts left. Bpdc in next 2 sts. Dc in last st.   – 16 st

Repeat rows 2 & 3 until you have a total of 8 rows. Your swatch should measure 4” W x 4” H. 

Instructions

Band

With 5.5mm Hook (or the hook used to obtain gauge)

  1. Ch10. Hdc in bottom bar of 2nd ch and each ch across. Turn.   – 9 st
  2. Ch1. Fphdc in 1st st and each st across. Turn.   – 9 st

Repeat row 2 until you have a total of 83 (87, 91) rows. Now we will ss the ends of the band together. 

  • Turn your work as if you are going to do another row of fphdc, but don’t ch. 
  • Fold the bottom row up so that it sits behind your top row. 
  • Insert your hook through the 3rd loop of your top row and the bottom 2 loops of your starting chain and make a slip stitch. (See figure 1)
  • Slip stitch in this manner all the way across. This is the wrong side of your band. (See figure 2)
  • Turn the band right side out. (See figure 3) Do not bind off. The first round will be worked into the side of the band where your hook is. We will now be working in the round, but still turning after each round.
