Easy Knit Hat Pattern – Quick Knitting Project


This comfy easy knit hat pattern is a fast and fun quick knitting project. And it’s another two-needle hat pattern for all of you who enjoy knitting with straight needles.

If you are beginning knitting, this knitted hat pattern gives you a little more variety with knitting stitches. Rather than knitting garter stitch only, with this hat you’ll be knitting ribbing as well. Plus you’ll learn some shaping knitting techniques at the crown of the hat. What I mean is that you will learn to make simple decreases to make your hat fit nicely around your head.

Knitting hats are fun and it seems like the styles are endless. Plus they’re great to knit as a last minute gift or knitting for charity item. They make a nice easy knitting project and I’ll bet there’s at least one person you know that could use one; especially when it’s hand made. Who doesn’t love a handmade knitted gift?

I hope you enjoy the pattern.
