What’s better than a free hat pattern? 12 free hat patterns, of course! This year we’re releasing a new, free hat design in Germantown on the 3rd Tuesday of each month.

Worthy of Note
The May Hat is worked in the round from the bottom up. The deep ribbed folded brim, intricate cables, and pom pom make the most of a full skein of Germantown, ensuring a warm and cosy hat come winter.

When working from the Body Chart on Round 16, you will need to remove and replace the end of round marker in order to work the final cable. If you choose to place markers identifying the pattern repeat, you will need to remove and replace each marker in order to work the cables that the marker divides.
