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

Worthy of Note
The November Hat is worked in the round from the bottom up from charts. After working the twisted stitch and cable brim ribbing, a lace and cable pattern is worked for the body of the hat. When working the body chart, your stitch count will increase from 18 to 24 stitches, and then back down to 18 stitches again.

Decreases shape the crown. Beginning with Round 8, you will need to move and replace the stitch marker identifying the beginning of the round.
