This is the hat you always “borrow” from your boyfriend. And why not? It’s the perfect fitted beanie but with a little extra room so it doesn’t ruin your hair. Don’t worry I’ve included sizes for both you and your boyfriend so you don’t have to share.

Knit in the round using the diamond lace stitch, the Boyfriend Hat has the look of crocheted mesh. (You can even resize with larger needles for a more open mesh.) You’re going to love the simple contrast stripe and the rounded skull cap crown on this reversible beanie. Or work the entire project with a color changing yarn for a unique hat every time.

This intermediate level pattern includes knit through the back loop and slipping stitches back and forth on your needles to create the unique diamond lace stitch. Links for video tutorials for the cast on, diamond lace stitch and hat crown decreases are included with this pattern.
