Hi mejalford 6875854, Unfortunately that pattern is no longer available on our site. We're sorry for the inconvenience. You may find it on the designer's website (www.shemakeshats.com) under "L.A. Winters Hat." Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

Hi sandeleh, Thank you for notifying us! Please find the updated pattern links above. -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

I love the Waffle Hat! The design is just so gorgeous.

I would like to see a double knit mittens. It resembles a "Brioche" stitch. They are fast and easy to make. Please try to get one & post it.

When you says my answer will be posted, where am I to find where it will be posted?

Why am I not able to print the patterns for the above hats or one in particular?

I am looking for a free pattern for twisted knit headband. Do you have one?

My Mom is the knitter in the family, but she has no computer. I signed up to be able to give her the description and patterns for the hats. Who cares if you have pop ups on your site? I just ignore them if I am not interested. There are plenty of sites that are advertisement supported to keep them free. So thank you "allfreeknitting.com" this is a great site :-)

I agree with you.... love this site....

I thought I had seen a hat that looked like a lace swirl hat but was made with a knitting loom?.. Is there such a hat??..

I guess I just have a good pop-up blocker, because I don't have that problem on this site. Also, if you want something for free, you have to expect to 'pay' for it somehow. I have found countless wonderful patterns here, and will stay subscribed forever!

This site is far too commercial with all the pop up ads and the like. Free patterns doesn't mean free patterns with advertizing attached. I will unsubscribe ASAP

Hi marilynlennis, Like most web sites, we are advertising supported just like radio and TV. We do not charge to subscribe to our newsletters or create accounts for the web site. Ads on our site are typically sold using contextual technology by large firms such as Google, Vibrant and RGM/Meredith (publisher of Better Homes & Gardens).Thanks!

Sorry marilynlennis, but I find your comment a bit too self-serving and lacking knowledge. What part of 'free patterns' aren't you understanding? Do you simply not comprehend just what is involved to bring you (and the rest of us) those free patterns? Do you seriously think it costs the site owners nothing at all to provide them? I can't imagine that you're an adult with such abject lack of knowledge about how the world works so can only think you're both young and a new knitter. That's a good thing--welcome to the knitting world since we love knowing more people are taking up our beloved pursuit, but please take a look around and learn to APPRECIATE those who provide you with these wonderful patterns. In order to do so they must have 'some' sources of funding, i.e. advertising! Otherwise there is one alternate solution I can think of: frequent your local library where you might find some books with patterns as I once did, or spend money and BUY patterns or knitting books!

goodness me woman,whats a few adds,your getting free lovely patterns.well all i can say is im very happy with this site.

For a beginner who doesn't know what is what it's difficult to find a pattern that's easy to start out with. Especially since you can't see them

Great, but I need a pattern for a tubon style wrap around knitted/crocheted hat. Please!!

I need the patterns on my computer

Granddaughter (16) had serious head injuries in accident - need to knit headbands for her. Any free patterns? Thanks

I'm looking for hats for softee chunky yarn

Can not get any!!!!!

It would really be helpful if the pictures were shown of the hats. A lot of time is wasted opening each link, then finding that that isn't the kind of hat, then opening another...etc. etc. etc.

I completely agree - to be able to see the designs would save so much time. I find it very frustrating to have to open each link.

Looking for knitted animal (head) caps like monkey, bear, etc.

can i knit a hat on 2 needles

looking for red heart curly q stretch hat pattern wr2182

marion - go to redheart.com - enter curly Q stretch hat in search box. The Free pattern will come up for WR2182

Time for another rant about this site - sorry. Your list of patterns says "31 Knit Hat Patterns for the Winter." Okay, so where are they? Why can't you just show the pictures of the hats all in one place instead of following one link after another and ending up wanting to pull your hair out? I wanted to check out the Waffel Hat pattern but can't find it...there doesn't seem to be any "click here for pattern" button. I decided to try "Save Pattern" thinking it would show up, but NO, that didn't work either. Honestly, if it wasn't that you do have some nice patterns that you can actually FIND, I wouldn't waste my time (and my hair!) coming here. This is one of the (if not THE) hardest craft sites to navigate. It has to be easier than this. I'd love to have the pattern for the Waffel hat, but I've pulled out enough hair for one day!

Hi barbra1531 Somebody must have fixed the link to the waffel hat pattern. I followed it and landed here http://www.pickles.no/waffel-hat where the pattern is shown. Good luck and happy knitting :-)

Hi, barbra1531 5940086. I'm sorry to hear you are having trouble accessing the pattern you desire. I was just able to access the pattern for the Waffel Hat without trouble. If you click the link above that says "Waffel Hat," you should be directed to the Waffel Hat pattern page on AllFreeKnitting. Then, once you're there, there should be a "Click here for the knitting pattern" link just like on any of our pages. If you click that link, a new window should open with the pattern in full on the designer's website. Please let us know if you continue to experience difficulty. Thanks! --Editors of AllFreeKnitting

Hi rae673 5056355, We do not have any men's ski hat pattern. I apologize for the inconvenience. Byrdhaus 6621915, Here are all of our cowl patterns: http://www.allfreeknitting.com/?task=search&search_term=cowl

I am looking for a pattern for a mens ski hat. one that covers the head and neck with just the face exposed.

There is a pattern that may be what you want at "Warmth for Warriors". It is also known as a helmet liner. I've made several for them. They are a volunteer organization knitting and crocheting hats for soldiers serving overseas. Good luck.

looking for a child's size hoodie/scarf or cowl--knitted thanks!!

Hi, everyone. You can find more free knit hat patterns by clicking on the "Knit Hats" tab under "Categories" along the left-hand side. These tabs are there to help you navigate the site and find what you're looking for among all of our free knitting patterns.
