Lana Grossa Olympia is a blended yarn with a thick thread. It is available in many fashionable colour combinations. There are also different types, for example Olympia Neon (very trendy!) and Olympia Gold (stylish!). This beautiful yarn turns every simple pattern into a beautiful design. If you start knitting right away, you will be ready to show off your new hat and scarf by the weekend!

What do you need?


Circular knitting needles size 8 with a length of 40 cm (for the hat) and with a length of 60 cm (for the snood).
Lana Grossa Olympia: 2 balls for just the snood scarf or hat. If you make both, 3 balls will be exactly enough.

Please note: It is important you always mark the first stitch of every row with a marker (or a coloured thread). This way you always know where you started and when the row is finished.

Snood knitting pattern

Cast on 60 stitches using circular needle no. 8 (60 cm).
Row 1: knit all the stitches.
Row 2: knit 1 stitch, purl 1 stitch (ribbing).
Repeat row 1 and 2 until the scarf has a length of 35 cm.
Finish with casting off all the stitches.

Hat knitting pattern

Cast on 44 stitches using circular needle no. 8 (40 cm).
Row 1: knit all the stitches.
Row 2: knit 1 stitch, purl 1 stitch (ribbing).
Repeat row 1 and 2 until you have a length of 27 cm. After that you start to decrease.

Decrease 3 stitches (=slip 1 stitch, knit 2 stitches together, pass slipped stitch over).
Purl 1 stitch from the third stitch.
Repeat 11 times (22 stitches in total).
In the next row knit 1 stitch, purl 1 stitch and so on.
In the next row knit 2 stitches together (=11 stitches).
Pull together the remaining 11 stitches using the thread.

    • Hi Diane,
      That's annoying. What is the problem exactly? Maybe you can try it on a computer, it will certainly succeed. Lotte

      Is it really only 44 stitches to cast on for the hat? Seems small.

      • Hi sbrabin,
        Indeed, we cast on 44 stitches for the hat. This yarn is quite thick, so for the hat not to slip down we cast on 44 stitches. If you think it is too little, you can measure the circumference of your head and adjust the pattern to your prefered size. You can cast on more stitches, but to be able to follow this pattern make sure it is a multiple of 4.
        Regards, Elianne

      We don't have this yarn in New Zealand, can I purchase through you? Failing that what is the weight or ply to use otherwise.
      Cheers Lena

    When you say "circular needle no. 8" what size do you mean? Is that UK sizing, US sizing or metric?

  • Lisa

    HI I'm from Australia....
    Wondering what country the size for the needle would be listed as
    I am trying to get a UK or US comparison?
    Same for the wool I'm having difficulties locating the Lana Grossa wondering what size wool I could substitute.
    Thank you

    Hello enjoying the hat pattern, but I’m having trouble on end of the pattern the decrease, it’s as clear as mud to me. Could you walk me through it please. It’s a beautiful hat. I could change the decr are I guess but I thought I’d ask? Thanks

  • Althea

    With the snood pattern, is it knitting from left to right or does it go by knitting in the round?
    I await your reply

  • Eileen

    What do yo do with the 11 stitches at the end please explain to me thank you

    • Hi Eileen, Thanks for getting in touch! Once you have 11 stitches left on your needle, cut your yarn, leaving a long tail on your work. Then pass this tail through the last 11 stitches on your needle and remove the knitting needle. You then pull the tail to bunch up the stitches, closing the final hole. Weave in the end and you're good to go. I hope that helps! Amy - Team Yarnplaza
