Hat with Heart
This is a free pattern for a hat/cap/beanie/toque with rapid decreases in the crown for a contemporary look. I have made this hat many, many times as donations to The Ships Project. Read about all of this on my blog, www.nonsuchknits.blogspot.com.
The pattern is written for an average adult head, with instructions for knitting in the round, or flat with seaming. It’s the perfect stash-buster project as you can use any worsted weight yarn, or even a DK yarn that has some loft or fluff, like alpaca.
