Knitspiration began as a way for my kids to offer a truly unique Christmas gift to their teachers. Each year, for the past few years, I have drawn out a picture of a plain knit hat, having my kids color it in with a design from their heart (along with a little guidance from mom). I then interpret their “designs” into a hat for these important people who pour so much into their lives daily.

So who inspires you? A teacher? Grandparent? Aunt? Uncle? Mentor?

A true exercise in collaboration and creativity, the Knitspiration Hat creates a gift giving experience as unique as your imaginations.


The pattern contains written instructions for a classic brimmed hat with a workspace for you to plot out your unique creation.

Use your own child helper as the “designer”, or design the hat from start to finish all yourself.
