Adult Hat Pattern Fitted & Knitted - for Straight Needles

    This is a free basic pattern for a hat. You do not need to know how to knit with circulars or double point needles - this pattern is meant for straight needles and the sides are then joined after it''s knitted together.

Hat dimensions: One size fits most. Length: 10"

Items you''ll need:

  • Size 6 (US), 4.25mm Straight Needles
  • 1 Skein Lion Wool or comparable worsted weight yarn, for each color used
    Note:- the example images show two colors - if you make the hat a solid color you will only need 1 skein of that color.
  • Small crochet hook
  • Yarn needle (optional - for weaving in loose ends)

Gauge: When working in St. st, 5 sts and 7 rows = 1 inch
