We love this hat pattern: It's simple, it's fast, it looks great.
Make a few for yourself, make a few as gifts. This is a great project for beginners because it utilizes some of the basic knitting skills like ribbing, decreasing, and using circular and double pointed needles.
We made a few adjustments to this pattern:
- We used a size US 10.5 needle for the ribbing, and a size US 11 for the rest of the hat. Keeping the ribbing a little smaller helps this hat stay on your head, and we like the look of a tighter ribbing.
- We used Eskimo instead of Andes. We particularly love the Eskimo colors for this project. You can stick with Andes or use Eskimo as a substitute.
Eskimo Color 27 is a beautiful brick color that lends itself well to the Autumn Season.
We have a lot of great Eskimo colors to make this hat in. We love the color mixes because they give a fun variegation of color. But we also carry solids in every hue of the rainbow. You could also choose a few colors and make a striped version! This pattern is very versatile.
You only need two skeins of Eskimo for this hat! Find all the available colors in our Webstore.
Or you can use 1 ball of Andes. Browse all the Andes colors in our Webstore.
