Fall is my favorite season! The overcast skies, sweater weather, and fall leaves. Walking through the pumpkin patch holding a hot cup of coffee. Decorating your home with bats, skeletons, and (best of all) ghosts! Everything about this time of year is magical, and this hat is intended to evoke the best autumn memories as you knit!

The Autumn Doodle is a series of stranded colorwork motifs. Knit using several holiday colors of DK weight yarn, this pattern is a festive way to use up leftovers, stash, or scraps!

The Autumn Doodle Hat is knit in the round using circular needles. It includes a wide 1x1 ribbed brim, with a slouchy fit (and optional pom pom).

This pattern includes five pages of fall and Halloween colorwork motifs are intended to inspire some “festive doodles” within your knit. Mix and match, swap contrast colors, and fill in with solid rows of knit as needed to make them pop!
