20 Knit Hat Patterns for Men

These knitted hats for men make the perfect gifts!

Knit Hat Patterns for Men

One thing all knitters have in common is finding great joy in knitting for others. I can even recall a time when I had gotten extremely ambitious and promised knitted gifts to everyone I knew. In the midst of all of the knitting, however, I think that we can agree that knitting for men — old and young — can be a tad bit on the difficult side.

So, we here at AllFreeKnitting.com want to make it a tad bit easier on you. Compiled in this list you'll find many of our knitting hat patterns that are fun to knit but that will still placate his delicate sense of what constitutes masculinity.

Some men will wear your frills and thrills with pride while others will casually toss them to the side. While you can get a feel for what he likes by hashing out a couple of quick and easy knit scarf patterns, learning how to knit a hat he'll actually wear is another story entirely.

Not only is this collection of hat patterns full of great options for those men who insist on wearing exclusively earth tones, but these patterns are also different and exciting enough that you won't be bored out of your mind knitting something for someone who likely won't appreciate it because of his inability to show gratitude that stems from years of pernicious emotional repression by the other men in his life. Your job as a knitter is hard enough without having to figure out which knitting patterns will work and which ones won't.

Steinway Hat

The best knit hat patterns are always the simplest. A great winter hat has neither frills nor fuss - it just keeps you warm. Sure, some fancy details here and there are nice to look at, but at the end of the day, if an intricately detailed hat doesn't keep you warm, you won't want to wear it.
