Hat Knitting Pattern - HFS Original - Downloadable PDF



Punctuation matters.  Leave the comma out of the name of this pattern and it is an ode to a popular romantic comedy, (and perhaps a cheesy 70’s cartoon series). Put the comma in, however, and it’s a celebration of love in all of its varied forms and permutations. 

I’ve chosen to write this pattern for a beanie style hat with 4 ply yarn, but there are notes on page 4 of the pattern for a slouchy DK version as well as some suggestions for achieving a wider range of sizes.

The colourwork itself is not difficult – you will be working with just two colours in each round.

There is a lot of room for exploring the use of colour. You could pair more traditional colours or go for a little less contrast or use a variegated or speckled yarn for the contrast colour. You can see some examples of these types of variations on my Ravelry page, (highfibrediet).

Top your hat off with a fun pom pom or wear it without one. Make a big, small, or in between yarn pom pom or use a faux fur or alpaca fur pom pom…make it your own!

NOTE:  This is a downloadable PDF pattern and you will be sent an email with the link to download when your purchase is completed.  You will NOT receive a print version of the pattern, however you will be able to easily print it yourself from the download.
