The quick-to-knit Bulky Gradient Hat pattern is a great go-to. This trendy pattern produces a gradient technique without any stranded colorwork, making it perfect for beginners. Since this free knit hat pattern is knit flat, you don't even have to learn how to knit in the round! If you're not a fan of the blue and white, this pattern works just as well with any color combination, so pick out your two favorites or the colors of your favorite outfit for a quick matching accessory.
