Looking for an easy knit as you begin your knitting journey? This is an ideal first hat. Once you’ve got your head around the knit stitch you can venture into different weights of yarn and this hat lets you explore the super chunky option.
It is super cosy and uses a pair of buttons to shape the top, rather than shaping while the fabric is still on your needles. You’ll love it, I guarantee!

Who is this for?

This pattern is good for you if you’re a beginner knitter and are still seeking out ‘easy knits’. This pattern consists only of the knit stitch (no purling), and casting on and casting off techniques.

Why do you need it?

It’s great to create something that you can where without getting tied up in knots with too much jargon! (The pattern is laid out in long-hand text, so you’ll find it easy to read)

Adding a little interest to your knit skills by adding embellishment, such as the buttons in this hat, means you’re not knitting yet another garter stitch scarf.

With super chunky yarn, you’ll watch this knit up quickly and you’ll see the stitches easily when flying across the rows!
