We’re living in historic and difficult times. During a global pandemic and subsequent quarantine, getting a haircut is a challenge. No worries, I’m here to help keep you safe and stylish! You can make a hat that will cover your #quarantinehair and fit seamlessly into your wardrobe.

For ages, women with textured hair have covered their tresses with silk and satin scarves to prevent frizz. Adding a silky lining to a knitted hat is a stylish and modern interpretation of that hair-saving trick, and it is convenient for all genders! If you’re a sporty/outdoorsy person, you might appreciate a moisture-wicking lining. If you’re living in a cold climate, you may want to line yours with fleece. Or maybe you have sensitive skin and wool hats make your forehead itch. Alternatively, a lined hat is a thoughtful gift for someone suffering from alopecia or undergoing cancer treatment. There are endless reasons to line a hat!

I hope you enjoy this beginner-friendly pattern and learn a few things in the process. I’m so excited to share this project with you!


This hat is both a knitting AND sewing pattern. My intention is to use this pattern as a teaching tool to help knitters learn how to sew - and vice versa! The construction will serve as a learning tool for those who would like to learn top-down raglan sweater knitting. If you can knit this hat, you can make any of my raglan sweater designs!

You will learn how to:

  • knit a top-down hat
  • work magic loop
  • work the easiest tubular bind off - a sewn bind off
  • sew stretch fabrics
  • machine sew a beanie lining
  • hand sew the lining into a knitted hat
