There are so many different skills, techniques, and crafting methods that involve yarn! As avid knitters and crochet enthusiasts, we’re always happy when we meet other people who work with yarn, no matter which kind of work they’re doing. In the winter, we love swapping patterns and ideas for warm garments that are either knitted or crocheted; we’re not picky about which!
Check out these 15 awesome and adorable hat patterns that are made in all types of ways, but definitely made of great yarn!
1. Baa-ble Hat by Donna Smith
This adorable hat pattern lets you practice your colour work and create a cute little winter wonderland scene at the same time. It’s not the simplest technique, but the resulting pattern is definitely worth the time you’ll spend switching strands and counting stitches as you go. We’re also always fans of a good pom pom!
2. Garter Ear Flap Hat by Purl Soho
We love a pattern that offers you a range of sizes! This particular design gives you enough sizing options that you could make a cute garter hat for every member of the family. It’s a simple look, but the subtle lines, the pointed top, and the mini pom are all cute enough to give it character. Imagine how sweet a matching set of these hats would look on each of your kids!
3. Ms Fisher’s Winter Hat by Christy Petersen
Are you a big fan of styles that look a little more vintage than a lot of the patterns you’re finding in your quick online searches? Then we think this hat might be a little more up your alley! It reminds us of something you might see on a character on Downton Abbey or in a scene in a 1930s era movie. It’ll keep your ears very warm as well thanks to how low down the style comes on the sides.
4. Rikke Hat by Sarah Young
Is your favourite type of design one that is simple in its stitch pattern but stylish in its shape? Then this adorable slouch toque was practically made for you. It’s an easy garter stitch that you can do in front of the television, but it’s constructed in a way that slouches back on the wearers head, making it totally trendy right now. We’ve seen hats just like this one in stores, actually, but isn’t always more fun to make your own?
