I love simple textures and this pattern has just that … a really simple texture that is almost as mindless as plain stockinette, with fun Star shaped decreases on the crown of the hat (which is what gave this pattern its name)! As with most of my hat patterns this one is sized for all the family, an elegant and unisex design that would be suitable for anyone to wear.

Knit up in a squishy worsted weight yarn this pattern takes no time at all to complete so also makes a perfect gift knit as well!

What you will need:

Yarn – 100g Worsted weight Yarn (approx. 200m/218 yds); Yarn used in sample – Lavender Lune Yarn Co – 100% Superwash Merino Worsted in the Throat Punch colourway (200m/218yrds per 100gm)

Needles – 3.5mm (US4) and 4mm (US6) 16” circular for knitting in the round or a longer cable for magic loop, and double pointed needles (DPNs) or magic loop in larger size for working the crown decreases.


  • 1 Stitch Marker for marking the beginning of the round as well as additional markers for crown decreases if you wish.
  • A tapestry needle for weaving in ends.

Gauge – Approximately 5 sts/inch blocked in broken seed stitch pattern.
