You’ve decided you want to start knitting - now what? You figured out how to make the basic knit stitch and cast on (maybe from a friend, maybe from YouTube!). And now you’d like to start making projects.

Here’s a hat pattern written especially for you, the adventurous beginner! I’ve designed it to help you learn some useful skills while creating a fun, final product.

It’s a cozy hat; the folded brim will keep ears warm in just about any weather. You only need to know one stitch – the knit stitch – and you’ll get practice both knitting flat and in the round. The pattern itself is written in simple “knitter-speak” – if you are a beginner, you’ll want to also read the technical notes before you start.

You’ll receive the pattern as well as an additional page of “teaching notes” with tips, tricks, and resources to help you learn how to read knitting patterns.

Hat uses less than one skein of worsted weight yarn - perhaps try some finger-less knits with the remainder?
