Are you completely obsessed with the musical “Hamilton?” Do you find yourself not wanting to throw away your shot? Do you knit like you are running out of time? If so, the Hamil-Knit pattern is for you!

Hamil-Knit is a stranded colorwork hat knit in the round. You will need at least 150 yards of a main color and 135 yards of a contrasting color. Phrases from the show surround the body of the hat, and the iconic star is worked in the crown decreases. A turned hem with the word “Hamilton” seals your identity as a die-hard fan.

If you enjoy this pattern and would like to contribute, I would love it if you make a donation to the Knitting Butterflies Podcast by clicking this link. This will help recover some of the expenses to write the pattern, as well as support the podcast and possibly even raise enough to see Hamilton on Broadway someday.

Thank you for your support!

You can listen to this special episode of the Knitting Butterflies podcast to hear some tricks and tips to make your hat turn out great!
