In this post, you will see hat patterns for the New Year.
You have made this little blog a happy place for me and I promise to keep adding free hat patterns for you to enjoy throughout 2019 and beyond!
The new year is a great time to evaluate what you did the year before and how you want to move forward in the new year, setting goals, making plans and generally sorting things out.
I started off the year by making to-do lists and getting right into my work, but the start of the year gave me an ear infection, so all I was good for was watching Peaky Blinders and moaning about how much my head hurt.

But now I feel better and I’m back on those needles, making more hats, gloves and other accessories!
This year one of my goals is to work on designing and making knitted sweaters and oversized cardigans.
If you are new to knitting and want to learn how to knit there are many easy and free patterns on my website, just take a look at my knitting pattern library, with patterns for women, men, baby, kids, pets and the home.
This is also a really lovely hat pattern to work on, the moss stitch hat will require a little more concentration than the others.
If you get distracted by watching Lucifer, then you run the risk of purling two stitches instead of K1, P1. If you are a beginner, this pattern will introduce you to the moss stitch and to decreasing and shaping.
This was knit with the gorgeous Lion Brand thick and quick in Fisherman (099) and Grey Marl (154) and on size 10.00mm (US 15) circulars, it will take you about 1-2 hours to make.
I made the pom with my trusty pom maker using a combination of the two yarns.
This knit hat has been made with a really pretty yarn that had been sitting on my shelf for a good while.
It was one of those yarns you buy because you love it, but you’re not quite sure what to do with it because it’s almost too pretty to use! But alas it needed to be turned into something and became this super soft and cosy hat.
With subtle striping throughout, it really is a lovely warm accessory.
Make one of your own with the gorgeous Rico Creative Melange in 001 I used two strands together to knit it, as it needed to be chunky.
This messy bun hat knitting pattern is really quick to make, as you don’t have to add extra inches to the top of your hat and a pom pom.
Made with chunky black yarn and knit on size 10mm (US 15) circulars it was really easy to make up. The only tricky part is when you finish the hat, be careful not to pull the closing stitches too tight, as it will be difficult to pass your ponytail through the opening.
It is really great though, for running or walking your dog on cold mornings!
