10 Free Knitted Hat Patterns


FALL MEANS HAT KNITTING, and here at Knitting Daily, we want to

make sure you have several knitted hat patterns to choose from. Keep
your ears warm with these 10 hat-knitting patterns, yours for FREE!

My FAUX ISLE HAT has a big bang for its buck! The self-striping
yarn does all of the work. This is an easy introduction to stranded
knitting, and a great stash buster!
Bring lace into your life with Heather Zoppettis SALUNGA BERET.
Youll also learn a circular cast-on thats a wonderful technique for
hats, shawls, or anything else that begins in the center of a circle.
The NORTH STAR HAT by Laura Bryant is absolutely stunning.
Its another easy color knitting design, worked in a fun slip stitch
pattern. The contrast of the metallic yarn and the fuzzy yarn is fun,
and the result is a beautiful stained-glass effect.
RYANS HAT by Pam Allen is worked from the top down. After
years of working hats from rim to crown, and ending up with hats
that were too tight, too loose, too short, and/ or too long, Pam
now makes her hats from the top downa pretty much foolproof
method for getting a hat to fit.

Ann Budd modeled her RIDGED HELMET HAT after some closefitting hats shes seen pictured on children in 1940s-era knitting
books. The hat is worked inside out so you can knit more rows
than you purl.
For the ANDEAN EARFLAP Hat, Mary Jane Mucklestone took
inspiration from one of her favorite knitting books, Andean Folk
Knitting, Traditions and Techniques from Peru and Bolivia (Cynthia
Gravelle LeCount, Dos Tejedoras, 1990). For her hat, she chose an
adaptation of Earflap #10. She picked a familiar Shetland diamond
for the colorwork motif and worked it in stranded stockinette, which
created long floats on the first and last rows of the motif.

Lisa Shroyer formed the earflaps on ARMY GIRL EARFLAP by


bending the lower edge of the hat with shaping. The flared effect
of the earflaps, combined with the round crown and strong line
across the forehead, gives this hat a military look. The color girls it
up a bit, but choosing another color could easily give it guy appeal.
It wasnt until after Cyrene Slegona finished knitting the
PENOBSCOT BAY HAT that she realized that the color
arrangement she used reflects the colorscape she sees when she
looks across the islands of Penobscot Bay in Maine on a sunny day
puffs of white against a variety of blues. The finishing pom-pom is
like a crowning cloud.
Meema Spadolas BERRY HAT is inspired by her Grannys backyard
berry patch filled with raspberry, blackberry, and elderberry bushes.
Although this hat is designed to be worn long after the berries
are gone (or bottled up as jelly), this should bring back some tasty
summer memories.
The yarn in Sandi Wisehearts ENCHANTED EVENING EAR
COVERING is actually made up of three different yarns: a railroad

ribbon, a multi-hued silky twist, and a lovely merino. The drape of


the yarn works great for a simple mobius loop that is both dressy
and practical.
We hope you enjoy these 10 free knitted hat patterns.
Hats off to you, Knitting Daily reader!

HAT

K ATHLEENS
FAUX ISLE HAT
Kathleen Cubley

NOTE

After making this hat a few times, Ive decided I dont like the two rows of stockinette
(brown, in the photo) and the following half
diamond. So I revised the pattern and left
that part out. The hat was a bit tall for most
people, so it fits better now, too. If you want
the hat to be taller, just work an additional
repeat of Chart A.
Finished Size 18" circumference, and 8"

when finished; fits about a 20" head. For a


larger head, cast on more stitches in multiples
of four.
Yarn Worsted weight in a solid color (A) and
worsted weight in a self-striping or variegated
color (B). Youll need about 100 yards of each
color. Suggested yarn: Cascade 220 (100%
wool, 220 yd [201 m]/100 g); and Noro Silk
Garden (45% kid mohair, 45% silk, 10%wool;
110 yd [101 m]/50 g).
Needles Ribbing: Size 6 (4 mm): 16" circular.
Hat: Size 7 (4.5 mm): 16" circular and set of
double-pointed (DPN). Adjust needle size if
necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

With Yarn A and smaller circular needle, CO


96 sts. Place a marker and join for working in
the round.
Work in k2, p2 rib for 1", using the variegated yarn (Yarn B) for the purl stitches and
Yarn A for the knit stitches.
Switch to Chart A, repeating rows 1 through
6 of the chartuntil the hat measures about
5" from the cast-on edge (or to desired length
minus 2 inches).
Using just one of the yarns (A or B, you
choose!), begin decreasing crown as follows:
*K10, k2tog; rep from * around hat88 sts rem.
Knit 1 round even.
*K9, k2tog; rep from * around hat80 sts rem.

*K1, k2tog; rep from * around hat16 sts rem.
*K2tog; rep from * around hat8 sts rem.
Break yarn, leaving about 6 inches of tail.
Thread tail onto a tapestry needle and pull
through remaining stitches twice. Cinch
tight.
FINISHING

Weave in ends and block lightly.

Salunga
beret

by Heather Zoppetti

A lightweight lace beret will keep you warm


and stylish all winter. This hat starts with a circular
cast-on at the top (this is a great technique for hats, shawls,
or anything else that begins in the center of a circle); it
ends with a tubular bind-off. The tubular bind-off is one
of my favorite techniquesfew techniques give me more
satisfaction than one thats been perfectly executed. Its a bit
time-consuming, but the clean look makes it worth the effort.

In order to keep the pattern properly aligned, it


will be necessary to borrow 1 stitch from the
end of the previous round to work the double
decrease at the start of Rnds 46, 48, 50, 58,
and 66 (shaded in blue on the chart). Prepare
for each loan by knitting the previous
round to the last stitch, temporarily slip the
last stitch (shaded in blue) to the right needle,
remove the marker, return the slipped stitch
to the left needle, and replace the marker.
Work the blue-shaded double decrease at
the start of the following round over the
borrowed stitch and the next 2 stitches
after it.

Finishing
Weave in rem ends. Block top of hat lightly to flatten point at
top of crown, but avoid blocking earflaps, as this will negate
the shaping of the flap decreases. I-cord front edging: Turn hat
upside down and inside out with straight forehead section facing you. Attach yarn to edge of earflap, about 4 rows away from
corner where forehead meets earflap, and 2 sts in from edge of
flap. With cir and WS of hat facing, pick up and knit 4 sts along
side of earflap to corner, angling the pick-up slightly so that it
begins 2 sts from the earflap selvedge, and ends at the selvedge
in the corner; pick up and knit 27 sts from sts CO for forehead;
pick up and knit 4 sts along side of earflap, angling the pick-up
so it begins at the selvedge in the corner, and ends 2 sts in from
earflap selvedge35 sts. Break yarn. With WS of hat still facing,
slide sts back to beg of cir, and rejoin yarn to beg of picked-up
sts. Work 4-st attached I-cord as foll: *K3, ssk (1 st joined),
with same side of work facing, return 3 sts just worked to lefthand needle, bring yarn around behind work in position to knit
again; rep from * until 4 sts rem, k4, bring yarn around behind
work, BO 4 sts. Cut yarn, leaving a 12 (30.5-cm) tail. With tail
threaded on a tapestry needle, sew end of I-cord to WS of earflap
to match appearance of beg of I-cord. I-cord ties: (make 2) With
dpn and RS facing, pick up and knit 4 sts at bottom point of
earflap (2 sts on each side of decrease line). Work 4-st I-cord (see
page 14) until tie measures 5 (12.5 cm) or desired length. BO
all sts. Cut three 78 (1820 cm) strands of yarn. With strands
held tog, use tapestry needle to thread strands through BO end
of I-cord. Pull ends of strands even, and holding all 6 ends tog,
secure with 2 or 3 overhand knots placed close together at end
of tie. Trim ends.

three-needle Bind-off
Place stitches to be joined onto two separate
needles. Hold them with right sides of knitting facing together. Insert a third needle
into first stitch on each of the other two needles and knit them together as one stitch. *Knit next stitch on
each needle the same way. Pass first stitch over second stitch.
Repeat from * until one stitch remains on third needle. Cut
yarn and pull tail through last stitch.
Short Rows: Wrapping a Stitch
Work to turn point, slip next stitch
purlwise to right needle. Bring yarn to
front (Figure 1). Slip same stitch back
to left needle (Figure 2). Turn work and
bring yarn in position for next stitch,

Hide wraps in a knit stitch when right
side of piece is worked in a knit stitch.
Optional: Leave wrap if the purl stitch
shows on right side. Hide wraps as folFigure 2
lows: Knit stitch: On right side, work
to just before wrapped stitch. Insert right needle from front,
under the wrap from bottom up, and then into wrapped stitch
as usual. Knit them together, making sure new stitch comes
out under wrap. Purl stitch: On wrong side, work to just before
wrapped stitch. Insert right needle from back, under wrap from
bottom up, and put on left needle. Purl them together.
i-cord
With double-pointed needle, cast on desired
number of stitches. *Without turning the
needle, slide the stitches to other end of the
needle, pull the yarn around the back, and
knit the stitches as usual; repeat from * for
desired length.

Backward Loop Cast-On

twisted cord
Cut several lengths of yarn about five times
the desired finished cord length. Fold the
strands in half to form two equal groups.
Anchor the strands at the fold by looping
them over a doorknob. Holding one group
in each hand, twist each group tightly in
Figure 1 Figure 2 a clockwise direction until they begin to
kink. Put both groups in one hand, then
release them, allowing them to twist around each other counterclockwise. Smooth out the twists so that they are uniform
along the length of the cord. Knot the ends.

Insert hook into an edge stitch, yarn over hook and draw a loop
through stitch (Figure 1), yarn over hook and draw it through
both loops on hook (Figure 2).

Pom-Pom
Cut two circles of cardboard, each 12 (1.3 cm) larger than desired
finished pom-pom width. Cut a small circle out of the center and
a small wedge of the side of each circle (Figure 1). Tie a strand
of yarn between the circles, hold circles together and wrap with
yarnthe more wraps, the thicker the pom-pom. Cut between
the circles and knot the tie strand tightly (Figure 2). Place pompom between two smaller cardboard circles held together with a
needle and trim the edges (Figure 3). This technique comes from
Nicky Epsteins Knitted Embellishments, Interweave Press, 1999.

Knitted cast-on
Place slipknot on left needle if
there are no established stitches.
*With right needle, knit into
first stitch (or slipknot) on left
needle (Figure 1) and place new
stitch onto left needle (Figure
