Customize your hat to say exactly what you want! This pattern includes charts for all the letters in the alphabet, all the digits, and a couple punctuation marks. This pattern calls for materials to make the hat using the magic loop method, but you could also knit it in the round using circular needles with a 12” cable, switching to DPNs as needed. I hope you have fun personalizing your hat!
