This warm easy knit hat pattern is a fast and fun quick knitting project. And for those of you who prefer working on straight knitting needles this is a two-needle hat pattern for you to enjoy.
For beginner knitters this easy knit hat is a small step up from my garter stitch hat pattern as it will help you practice a couple more knitting techniques and they are rib stitches and the K2tog (knit 2 stitches together) decrease. I’m also providing the links to both techniques so that you can check out how they’re done if you need too.
And for all you experienced knitters out there this is a lovely relaxing quick knitting project to enjoy plus if you like knitting hats for charity this hat is a great choice as it knits up in no time.
Also this easy hat pattern will make a great last minute gift and I’ll bet there’s at least one person you know that could use one especially when it’s hand made. After all who doesn’t love a handmade knitted gift?
I hope you enjoy the pattern.
