Knitting Seed Stitch Textured Hats
A Pattern by Liz Chandler @PurlsAndPixels
This simple knitting pattern teaches you how to make seed stitch textured beanie hats in all sizes. These comfortable textured beanies are designed to fit snugly on the head. If you prefer a slouchier beanie, go up one size. This PDF knitting pattern walks you through making a hat with clear, row by row instructions for adult xl, adult, child, toddler, baby, and preemie sizes.
How these Seed Stitch Hats are Made
These hats are worked in the round, from the bottom up.
You can substitute almost any worsted weight yarn in this pattern successfully; just check your gauge before you start. I’ve found that Malabrigo Rios, a merino wool yarn, makes an excellent substitute yarn for this pattern.
This is a beginner to intermediate knitting skill level pattern that requires a general understanding of knitting in the round, double point needles, knits, purls, and decreases. The larger sizes of this pattern have instructions for using circular needles, as I find working with a circular needle is just a bit faster than DPNs. However, if you don’t have these needles in your collection, you can make these hats with just DPNs. You can also substitute long circular needles and the magic loop method if you are familiar with that knitting skill.
– Adult XL size fits adults with larger heads, 23’’ – 25’’ head circumference

If you use the materials suggested in this pattern, your final product will be machine washable. To keep your hats looking their best, hand wash or machine wash separately on delicate cycle in cold water. You may tumble dry on low heat, but laying flat to dry is recommended.
