Desert Scavenger Hat: Knitted Goggles

In my original free pattern for the Desert Scavenger Hat, I linked to a pair of crochet goggles that I used. I love those crochet goggles, but for those of you who don’t know how to crochet and would like to make the knitted goggles, here’s your pattern!

Assemble Your Googles

Lay out your three pieces on the hat to see how it will fit. Remove the Icord, leaving the eye pieces. Pin the two black eye pieces of the goggles to your hat, and sew them on. Weave in ends.

Icord is 20 inches long. Do not bind off! Lay out goggle outline around black eye pieces, and use a stitch marker to mark how long you need the icord to be. Frog back to your marker, and bind off. Leave a long tail to use to sew the outline to the hat. After you sew to the hat, weave in your ends.

Happy space scavenging!
