Knitted Hat Patterns
By Marjory Richmond
Learning new knitted hat patterns is one of the best ways you can grow as a knitter. Making a flat hat is the simplest hat project that will give you the feel of knitting hats and it's also a fast way for established knitters to finish a project on the double. With this unique hat, all you need to do is knit using a garter stitch square knit up on the sides and gathered in an original manner at the sides, and viola! You have a nice, useful head-warmer.
1. 1 skein or 34 yards of yarn
3. 1 pair of size 19 US needles
4. A small quantity of smooth wool yarn in a nice color that will blend with your base yarn
5. Yarn needle
Two rows per inch and one and a half stitches in garter stitch.
Prior to sewing, the piece is approximately 15 inches long and 10 inches wide. A finished piece is roughly 15 inches around and 9 inches tall. It will fit any average sized person.
1. Begin by casting on 15 stitches.
2. Knit every row until your project measures 15 inches.
3. Bind off, then cut the yarn.
4. With the smooth yarn, sew the bound off edge to the cast on edge.
5. Thread the smooth yarn through the stitches on one of the sides of the tube you just made. To make sure that there is no extra hole, pull tightly. To make sure that it's extra tight, thread the yarn back through the stitches. Cut and weave in ends.
