This free knitting pattern is ideal for Level 3 - Easy Level Knitters

Designed by the talented team over at Lion Brand Yarns, this easy hat is worked in the round from the ribbing going up.

The hat is available in a single size but is stretchy enough to fit a range of sizes.

The finished piece measures approximately 18 inches in circumference and a height of about 11 inches. That is about 45.5 cm in circumference and roughly 28 cm in height if you are using metric units.

This pattern would be an ideal project for intermediately skilled knitters.

To make this project, you will need Lion Brand’s Basic Stitch Anti Pilling Yarn, a soft yet superbly durable medium weight yarn that is specially treated to resists pilling. Its fibers are made of 100% acrylic, perfect for making long-lasting garments and afghans, as well as pretty accessories, like this piece that we’re doing.

You will also need a size US 8 and US 10 double-pointed and circular knitting needles. That’s 5 mm and 6 mm needles if you are using metric units.

Moreover, the colorwork pattern for this hat can be worked using the detailed written instructions or for those who like visuals, a chart.

You will be using the k2tog knitting decrease when you work on this project. The k2tog or knitting two stitches together is a basic right-slanting decrease that is pretty common throughout knitting patterns.

You can learn how to do the k2tog in this illustrated tutorial here: Learn How to Make a Basic Right Slanting Decrease (K2tog).
