Inspired by my Black Cat Fingerless Mitts pattern, I adapted the cat motif for this valentine themed hat!

This slightly slouchy hat has a ribbed welt and a stocking stitch body with a Fair Isle (stranded) cat repeat pattern encircling the lower section of the hat body; when paired together, the cats’ tails form the shape of a heart. The motifs are worked using only two colours in a row, with the exception of the cats’ eyes row, which makes this an ideal pattern for those new to the Fair Isle technique. The hats pictured are worked using a lovely soft merino wool in Aran weight and are topped with an optional pompom.

The pattern covers sizes from toddler to adult and the instructions are written for both knitting flat on two needles with a seam at the back, or in the round using a circular needle with no seaming necessary. You may, therefore, only wish to print the appropriate pages for your chosen project.
