This is a lovely quick knit hat pattern for children aged 3 months – 10 years.
This pattern is all based around twisted knit stitches to create columns of little twisters that all meet up at the crown of the head.
The pattern can be adjusted for adults but it is not included in the pattern but you can scale up your cast on based on your gauge or use a thicker yarn and larger needles.
This hat is worked in the round with the magic loop method although you can quite easily work the hat up using DPNs.
What Will You Need?
To create this lovely little hat you will need the following:
- 4 mm circular needles: I used Knit Picks Caspian Interchangeable Needles for this project;
- A stitch marker: I love Charmed Knitting’s Metal Stitch Markers and they look so pretty on your project too;
- Scissors & tapestry needle: the Tool Marker Kit by BCMRun has everything you could possibly need for most of your knitting life;
- Any version of a DK weight acrylic or wool blend yarn, one skein will be plenty.
