Free Knitting Patterns with AllFreeKnitting: How to Knit a Hat: 7 Cozy Free Knit Hat Patterns eBook
Did you know that a lot of heat escapes from the top of your head? This winter, make sure to stay nice and warm by partnering up with a few knitting patterns for hats. In our brand new eBook, How to Knit a Hat: 7 Cozy Free Knit Hat Patterns, you'll find 7 hat knitting patterns all designed to keep in the heat with style. That's right; we said the "s" word. If you have any negative connotations surrounding handmade hats, let this eBook prove you wrong. Forgot the bulky, bland and boring patterns you're thinking of, this selection of prized knits is made for the modern day man, woman, child and even pet.
Dive in and find your favorite go-to patterns within the pages of this collection. Even if you have enough knit hat patterns, why not discover some new inspiration inside this group of all-star tutorials. Before you know it, you'll find yourself feeling the creative urge to knit a gift for a friend this holiday season. Or maybe you'll feel moved to surprise your mom for her birthday by offering her a hand knit hat in her favorite color. Why not really get into the holiday spirit of giving and use these free knitting patterns for hats to say thank you to your neighbor; after all, you've been borrowing "just a pinch" of sugar and flour from their pantry for years. No matter what gets you inspired to pick up your knitting needles, yarn and a hat pattern, you'll find a variety of patterns that cater to every skill level inside this eBook. Both advanced and beginner knitters will enjoy making these fall fashions that are winter friendly, stylish, comfortable and ideal for all cold weather activities, like waiting outside for the school bus, building snow forts during recess, or strolling along the sidewalk with your sweetie. The blistering winds and winter's cold, snowy kiss will be no match for your free hat knitting patterns which have tightly woven fabric meant to block out even the harshest of winds.
Let's hear it for the kids! This fun group of free knit hat patterns works as mirrors of sorts; each pattern reflects the care-free and playful nature of children in every stitch. The Hot Air Balloon Hats, pictured to the left, captures child-like innocence to a tee, and it's also one of my favorite patterns in this free collection. Like scoops of rainbow sherbet, a series of over-sized pom poms top these crazy creations that feature the cable stitch and a ribbed edging. To double your fun, get the kids involved in the creative process and ask which colors they'd like their hats to be. Your children and grandchildren will feel even more special that you asked for their opinion, plus they'll have a winter accessory that they'll cherish both on and off the playground.
If you're feeling extra ambitious, fashion a pair of equally whimsical mittens to match these fanciful knitted hat patterns and create a cool winter set that every parent will envy. Once you're done, you can rest easy knowing that those you love will be safe and warm every time they step outdoors, all because of you and your handiwork.
While life's lessons might tell you that it can be dangerous to day dream too much (at least during work or while you're driving), feel free to release your inner dreamer with this Day Dream Hat, pictured to the left. This easy knit hat pattern offers a simple design that acts like a blank canvas. Armed with yarn instead of paint, you have the ability to create your own masterpiece by knitting a hat. So, unleash your creative side. Take a look outside your window tomorrow morning, make a note of the colors of the sunrise and capture those hues in this design. Become energized by the sight the varying shades, and get lost in the beautiful way the reds and yellows effortlessly fold into one another like pools of wet paint.
There's the old crafter's adage that says, "Never buy something you can make yourself." At AllFreeKnitting, we believe in supporting the handmade community, whether that's by purchasing a hand knit item made by a fellow knitter or if it's by knitting up your own gifts for friends and family. Aside from supporting the handmade movement, knit gifts allow for more personalization, which means you'll be able to make a present your friend will remember for years.
Where's the joy in knitting hats if you can't make some for the furry little animals in your life, too. Because we like fun (and who doesn't), this free collection also features a One Seam Guinea Pig Hat that's perfect for your favorite little piggy or doll. Switch up the colors and make your little companion a matching hat to complement yours. Wouldn't this picture to the left make a cute Christmas card? Even if you're not into dressing up your pets, this beginner hat pattern is great for building up skills and can also be used on other items, like dolls, teddy bears, beanie babies — you name it!
