A quick and easy knitting pattern for all knitters to make is this kids hat pattern. This free knitting pattern can be made in a couple of hours, while you sit on the sofa and relax watching Netflix!
The hat was knit in the round, made in a super soft light grey yarn that is 50% wool and 50% Alpaca. The pom pom was made in the same yarn in white. Modelled by the lovely Grace, you can follow her on instagram @lifewithmygrace.
This beginner knitting pattern will make a great hat for your little ones or other family members. They will make great gifts to be given this winter when the weather is really cold. You can make them up in many colours, with chunky yarn and big needles, it will be easy to make more than one!
