“Instant gratification.”
With this free pattern, we aimed for the fastest hat in the west! Based on our Basic Beanie, this hat has a snug ribbed brim and easy, swirling decreases at the crown. Knit with a super-chunky-weight yarn, this hat will be on your head in—if not a few hours—a few nights of knitting. That means it’s perfect as a last-minute gift, too!

We knit the Super Quick Hat in super-chunky-weight Crazy Sexy Wool from Wool and the Gang. A single ply of plump Peruvian wool, Crazy Sexy Wool is soft, squishy, stretchy—and so fun on your needles. Plus, Wool and the Gang sources this cozy yarn from happy South American sheep, with consideration to reduce the impact on the environment. And with a great palette of richly saturated hues, you can go crazy and knit one in each color!

Approx. 18”/46cm round x 8 1/2”/21.5cm long; fits 20-23”/51-58cm head.
