Where I am, winter has been a long time coming. Finally (or unfortunately, depending on how you feel about it!), it has arrived, leading most of us to cuddle under blankets, blast the heat, turn on the wood stove, and chug tea like it’s our jobs.

I sat down to design a hat and originally picked up a thin (but beautiful) yarn. Just as I was about to start the stitch pattern, I decided I wanted something that was going to be quick and - perhaps most importantly - warm! This Winter Waffle hat is the result.


  • Super Bulky weight yarn (I used one skein of Bernat Roving in the color Teal that I purchased from Blitsy)
  • Size US 10 circular needle and DPNs (you can use the DPNs for the entire hat if you’d like; otherwise, you’ll just need them for decreasing at the top)
  • Tapestry needle
  • Stitch marker


PM: Place Marker
K2tog: Knit 2 Together: Knit the next two stitches together (right-slanting decrease)
YO: Yarn Over
st/s: Stitches


Slip stitch marker at the end of each round so you know where the next row begins
