This fun & quick strappy Haka hat is knit in super bulky yarn and is great for beginners or experienced knitters looking for a speedy instant gratification project! The basic Haka hat pattern is bundled together with the cabled Haka hat and the matching cabled cowl in the Haka pdf.

Knit it in super bulky weight yarn, or hold three strands of worsted weight together (note that yardage estimates are for bulky; if using worsted you’ll need three times as much yardage).

There are full instructions included for the jog-less striped version.

Knit it as a kid size by working at a slightly smaller gauge (using bulky yarn instead of super bulky weight). The standard adult size in the given gauge will fit most adult heads.

Haka hats are wearable four different ways! Let the strap hang loose, fasten it under your chin for super warmth, fasten over your head to free your ears, or fasten behind your neck for cozy ear coverage.

(The original basic Haka hat pattern was first released in 2008; the pattern was completely updated and the new cabled hat & cowl were added to the new version in 2013.)
