From fine knits to super chunky knitted hats, you can make one for every outfit.

When you look in the stores and see knitted hats for sale, they are often poor quality and made with acrylic yarns….so making your own is a much better idea!

Choosing your own yummy yarns and making a hat for yourself is really satisfying and sure to bring compliments from friends and family.

  1. Love the slouchy beanie.
    I’m still waiting for your cable knit hat with the matching mittens. Any chance of that one coming out soon?

    1. Hello Peggy! Thank you so much for your comment! I was keeping a bunch of patterns including the cabled hat and matching mittens to be released this fall/winter. I’m going to do a mini collection, as I have other accessories to add. So I will release maybe at the beginning of September. It will be posted on my social media though when they are ready 🙂
