Mrs. Weasley’s Kwik Knit Kap
If you have a big list of knitworthy friends and family, like our favorite witch, then you know the necessity of the “perfect hat” pattern that is guaranteed to look good on your husband, stylish enough for any teen, and can be knit right from the stash!
I put together this pattern that does it all, and more. With two different styles and recipes to knit it in 3 different yarn weights, this is my favorite go-to hat to knit and wear! Enjoy!

Sizing and Gauge: Brimmed Hat Version is meant to fit with a good amount of positive ease. Kap Version is meant to be a tad tighter than its brimmed counterpart. This hat is meant to fit differently on different people, and the brimmed version will be a bit more snug on a man. The Kap Version will fit most growing teens like the Brimmed Version fits adults. A smaller or larger hat can be created by casting on more or less stitches in a multiple of 4.

P: purl
K2tog: knit two Stitches together
SSK: slip two Stitches, knit together through back loop
P2tog: purl two Stitches together
Asterisks denote repeat of sequence for each round.

Important Notes
The Fingering/Sock Version is knit using two strands of Fingering/Sock Weight yarn held together (to make a thicker, DK weight yarn).
Mrs. Weasley recommends knitting your hat in doubled Coquette Sock Yarn from Bumblebee Acres Farm. This yarn is extra warm, extra woolly, and is magically nonskrinking!
Your hat may magically pool colors! If using Doubled Sock Yarn, or any other home-potion-dyed sock yarn, ball wind your yarn and make sure your ends from the outside and inside of the ball match in their color sequencing, if you want this swrily, magical effect! It is alright it these variegate in more than one place, but as
long as one sequence always lines up, it will create a delicious swirl or color pool effect
in your hat! To create a somewhat perfectly matched swirl/color pool with limited
variegation, create two balls and line up the sequences. To avoid this, just don’t let those sequences line up!
Mrs. Weasley says she also loves completely variegated hats, as they have something inexplicably homie about them! This is ESPECIALLY true for Handspun Hats!
