Basic Knit Hat in All Sizes
A knitting design by PurlsAndPixels
Here you’ll find my basic knit beanie design. I wanted a vanilla, one-color hat to knit for gifts, but couldn’t find a pattern I liked. I wrote this pattern in all sizes, because I like to make these as presents for everyone I know. These simple but classic knit beanie hats can be worn any time of year. They are warm enough to keep your head cozy, but light enough to keep in your coat pocket just in case it gets chilly. These beanies are designed to fit snugly and are not slouchy. Wear them alone or under your ball cap or coat hood. I’ve published the pattern for download here in my Shop and on Etsy, if you’d like to knit these yourself. Or, I can custom knit hats just for you in any color you choose.
Knitting pattern: basic knit hat
Included are complete instructions for Adult XL, Adult, Child, Baby, Infant, and Preemie size hats.
This is an easy to intermediate hat knitting pattern that requires knitting in the round and double point needles. Any worsted weight yarn should work for this pattern (check your gauge), but it was designed with Caron Simply Soft Yarn. Use solid colors, or mix it up with Simply Soft Paints or a variegated worsted weight yarn for a unique twist on a classic hat.
This pattern is only for personal use, gifting, and charitable donation of completed items. Please do not sell items made using this pattern.
