As promised, here is the women's version of the Triple Knit Hat knitting pattern. I can tell already that this is going to be my go-to hat this winter! As I mentioned in the baby/kids pattern there are a few things to remember when working with multiple strands of yarn at once:
1) Make sure you keep the 3 strands together at all times while knitting. Sometimes they want to split up when inserting the needle into the stitch. 2) Keep the 3 different skeins of yarn apart from each other while you are working. If you don't they will knot together. I made this mistake and had a big mess to untangle!
Knitting with three strands at once takes some getting use to, but once you do this hat is a breeze to make. I definitely plan on making this in a few more colors for myself!
Yarn: Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in Hudson Bay
Loops & Thread Cozy Wool in Moss Green

Free Knitting Pattern:
*Note- work the 3 different strands of yarn at the same time.
With the circular needles, cast on 32 sts. Join ends together. Work in K1, P1 ribbing for 2 rows. Knit every row until the pieces measures 8 inches from the cast on edge.
Decrease rows: K1, K 2 together until you are left with 5 sts. Cut yarn, thread all 3 strands through remaining stitches, pull to tighten. Knot and weave in ends.
