Free Hat Pattern

I knit this hat on 16″ circular needles, so there was no seaming involved, just a few loose ends to sew in at the end.

The pattern is easy to follow, knitting in the round on circular needles, you could knit this hat on DPN’s if it is your preference.

The hat uses basic stitches – knit and purl, to knit ribbing and then for the main body of the hat.

If you are a beginner it will also introduce you to shaping through simple decreases.

The hat size can also be adapted if you want to make it smaller or larger, just measure the circumference of the recipients head and adjust the number of stitches you cast on.
