Here’s a nice big bunch of hats to knit featuring plenty of styles to choose from and requiring a variety of skill levels (from Beginner to Intermediate and Advanced). The majority are for woman so I kept them together in the first section, next group underneath is a dozen different patterns for men (and unisex). I’ll be adding more to this collection as I find them so you may want to bookmark this page for reference, enjoy!
Cabled Chapeau : Circumference is 22″. One size fits most women. Worked in the round on circular needles, also uses straight, DPNs and a cable needle.
Sweetie Pie : Made with a circular needle and DPNs. Sized to fit 18-19 (19-20, 20-21) inch circumference.
Ruched Slouch Beanie : Made with 2 skeins worsted medium weight yarn on circulars (DPNs needed as well).
Improv : Made with bulky weight yarn on circular needles and DPNs. Includes a matching cowl.
Bridget : Skills required: Knit & purl stitches, done in the round, Pompoms.
Auraleigh : The basket weave effect across the rim holds it in place.
Winter Pom-Pom : Includes directions for making matching fingerless gloves.
All Day Beret : Circumference is 21″. One size fits most women. Worked in the round on circulars and finished on DPNs.
Floopy : Gauge is 3.5 stitches per inch in stockinette.
Subtle Twist : While most of this is worked in a simple rib design, subtle cables spring forth twisting into the top decreases adding interest.
Speedy Cable : Gauge is 9 stitches and 12 rows over 4-inch square using stockinette stitch.
One Day Recipe : Will work for any gauge and is done from the top down.
Lake Park : This can be worked flat or in the round and if you don’t like the rolled edge at the bottom, just work a few extra rows of ribbing instead.
February : Gull lace body with an i-cord to edge the beret as opposed to a rib, finished with a simple garter stitch crown.
Bulky Tam : This produces a small woman’s size hat. If you would like something larger or floppier/more dramatic, simply add 1 or more additional decrease/increase sets.
Elvira : Design features a lovely smocked brim.
Easy Cable : Made with worsted weight yarn (or cotton and wool mix), features a cabled band around the brim.
Terzetto : Will fit up to 24″ but can be adjusted for larger/smaller sizes easily.
Circle Band Design : Includes chart, doesn’t provide specific instructions at the end for how to decrease when finishing but I’m sure whatever method you choose would work.
Jacques Cousteau : Made with a 3 1/2 mm circular needle and 3 1/2 mm dpn’s for the crown decreases.
Red Light Special : Sized to fit an average adult’s head (21-23″), skill level marked as Intermediate to Advanced.
Basic : You do not need to know how to use circulars or double point needles – this is meant for straights. Finished length is 10″.
Irish Hiking : Made with 24″ circulars (size 8) and DPNs (for the crown) using worsted weight yarn.
Ribbed : Worked in the round; increase & decrease techniques.
