5 Fun Hat Patterns to Knit

Hats are a great knitting project for any season, but they can be especially fun to knit when there’s a chill in the air. Whether you like to make hats for charity or are looking to get a head start on your handmade holiday gifts, check out these great hat patterns that make a cozy treat for yourself, a loved one, or someone in need.

Regalo Hat

I wrote this hat pattern as part of a collection of patterns that are perfect for gift-giving. It’s a slouchy hat, written for two sizes (Head Circumference 18-20” and 20-22”) and you can knit one for all the people in your life that are knit-worthy.

Boreal Hat

The Boreal Hat by Meghan Jones is a hat for the whole family. The cabled hat pattern is sized for baby to adult. Not only are written instructions included for the charts, but the pattern also includes matching mittens!

Vault of Diamonds

Just like the Boreal Hat, Vault of Diamonds is another stunning hat pattern by Meghan Jones, generously sized to fit the whole family. This hat is worked from the bottom-up and in the round to create the colorful diamond pattern.

Alrisha Hat

The Alrisha Hat by Corrina Ferguson is slightly-slouchy lacy hat, written for three sizes (19.25 (22, 24.75)” head circumference). Worked in a bulky yarn, you can have this one whipped up in no time for your own head or the head of a loved one.

Fangirl Hat

The Fangirl Hat by Corrina Ferguson is the perfect hat for the sports fan in your life. Knit it up in your favorite sports team colors, the colors of your alma mater, or even the colors represented in your favorite fictional fandom. The hat is worked in worsted weight yarn – try making one with leftover yarn for a fun and funky scrappy hat!

      Elaine – under the photo there is a link to the pattern. It’s easy to overlook.

      The hats are great. Has anyone seen a piece that looks like it attaches to a hat and goes over the face. For lack of better description it looks and shaped like a big smile.

    Why is it so time consuming to find prices and ordering data. I usually just give up and delete

      Hello Susan,
      Here’s what the experts had to say about your question:

      Due to the cables and shaping within the cables, it would be considered an intermediate level pattern.

      Please let us know if you have any further questions

    Hello…quick question re: the Regalo hat pattern…
    After the instructions for the Ribbing Round, the Next Round instructions read: *k1o, p1; rep from * to end. I have never seen “k1o” in a pattern…is it a misprint? Or am I missing something?
    Please advise, thank you!

      Hello Joan,

      Here’s what the experts had to say about your question:
      There’s a typo in the pattern. It should be k10, p1 (knit 10 stitches, purl 1 stitch).
