Mock Aran Knitted Mens Hat


This free mens knitting pattern makes a great Father's Day gift, and is really easy to knit. What's great about this pattern in particular is that it looks so complicated. Get the textured look of cable knitting without actually knitting any cables!

I am having a hard time with the very first row! I have counted the stitches many times and come up with 138 and I am supposed to have 144.

You do mean 47 cm (16'-18") circular needles, right? It shows 47 "...

Hi esdunlop, the blog post states the following regarding needle size: "Size 8 (5 mm) 47 circular needle (for magic loop) or set of size 8 (5 mm) double pointed needles." Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

The 47" for the magic loop is correct, if it was in cm it would not work.

Can this be made in a lighter yarn for chemo cap

Hello! Can this hat be made with sport weight yarn?

HI. Is there a way to adapt this beautiful pattern to a woman's hat? I'm sure that adding a pom pom would help, but I'm talking about size.
