This knit hat pattern is an excellent project for anyone who is learning how to knit.
Inspired by the movie Love Story, I wanted to make a hat that was perfect for the fall weather.
Not too bulky and not too light, this hat is comfortable to wear on crisp days when you walk through the park!

Beginner Hat Pattern
The hat pattern is easy, knit in a simple rib pattern.
Using knit and purl stitches, it will also introduce you to decreasing and shaping.
This knitted hat would take you around an hour or two to make (depending on how fast you knit!) and will be a cozy addition to your autumn wardrobe.
I made the hat using Classic Alize Lanagold yarn in rust (91) and knit on size 4mm (US 6) and 6 mm (US 10) 16″ circular needles.
I knit this hat on circular needles, so there was no seaming involved, just a few loose ends to sew in at the end.
Easy Ribbed Hat Pattern
The hat uses basic knitting stitches – knit and purl, to create 1×1 ribbing for the main body of the hat.
If you are a beginner it will also introduce you to shaping through simple decreases for the crown of the hat.
I watched the movie Love Story for the first time and I really enjoyed it, not only for the story but for Jenny’s wardrobe.
Her fall style, with the oversized camel coat and knitted hats, were stunning.
The rust coloured yarn I used for the hat is just right for fall and will go with any outfit.
This easy hat knitting pattern is great for any beginners who are looking for an easy project, as it is perfect for practising the basic knitting stitches.
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.
