A boy’s beanie and a girl’s beret to show off your school colors! They may not be magic, but these easy to knit hats will keep you warm and in style at the same time.  The beanie has paired decreases at the crown for a more masculine and contemporary look, and the beret offers a feminine alternative to the standard hat shape. They’re both knit in a practical and machine-washable acrylic/wool yarn that comes in all the Hogwarts house colors, so you can pick your house and your stripes and have house-head all winter long!

Pattern offers two style alternatives, and two stripe patterns. It used to be posted for free on the Charmed Knits blog, but that site is no longer in existence.
