I’ve had so many requests for the pattern for the hat I am wearing in my blog banner that I finally knit up a couple more versions of it and wrote out the pattern.

The original hat was a beautiful, simple hat I knit out of a hank of worsted weight handspun yarn from Fiber Optics Gradient Roving. My sweet daughter wore the hat to school one day and then I never saw it again. The hat is lost forever, thus the name of the hat is the Lost Banner Hat.

I made this same hat two more times, one in a hank of yummy Malabrigo Worsted and another in my worsted handspun from Dyeabolical Yarns.

It’s a great, quick, comfy unisex hat that is for children, women, men, teens… everyone! It’s a perfect one skein hat needing about 200 yards of worsted weight.

The stretchy extended ribbed brim makes it fit pretty much any head size with up to 3-4 inches of negative ease. The child size finished measurement is 17.5 inches and the adult size finished measurement is 19 inches. The adult size fits easily on my 22-inch head!
