Winter's Wave Hat Pattern

This hat pattern uses bulky yarn, so it works up in just a few hours!

Updated February 20, 2019
Winters Wave Hat Pattern
Winters Wave Hat Pattern

This super easy hat knitting pattern is great for beginners who still want a warm and stylish hat to call their own handmade creation.

For those super chilly winter days, it's important to have a hat that's extra warm. That's why this pattern uses super bulky yarn paired with needles that are slightly smaller than typically required for a yarn of that weight.

This creates a dense fabric that will keep your head warm as well as super secure ribbing at the bottom. Switching to a larger needle size for the remainder of the hat gives this pattern a nice drape, too!

Notes

On Switching to a Larger Size Needle:
When switching to a larger size of circular knitting needle after the ribbing, your tension is going to be sort of tight at first, no matter what. However, if you happen to be using an interchangeable knitting needle set, we recommend changing the right needle first and keeping the left needle the same size for one round. This will make the transition to the bigger needles much less painful; once you've done a round with the mismatched needle sizes, you can switch the left needle to the bigger size and continue knitting around.

How to Work a Centered Double Decrease:

  1. Slip two stitches together knitwise
  2. Knit 1
  3. Pass both of the slipped stitches over the knitted stitch
