Improvised Stripey Hat by Elizabeth Elliott

Improvised Stripey Hat

This pattern is available for free.

I had such fun making stripey hats for the niece and nephews that I wrote a tutorial outlining how to improvise your own using your choice of yarn. The tutorial includes instructions to guide you through the process, from selecting your yarn and needles through to sewing down the hem (if you make one). There are tips for calculating your cast on, ideas for different brims (garter, ribbed, or hemmed), and suggestions for selecting the right cast on.

Gather up your scraps and mini-skeins and make a stripey hat of your own!
