Need a last minute Christmas gift? I have the perfect pattern for you. This knitted hat uses bulky yarn and size 10.0 mm knitting needles so it will be worked up quickly. I used Loops and Threads Charisma yarn for this project, but you can use whatever bulky yarn you want to complete this hat.
Here is the pattern:
10.0 mm (US 15) Knitting Needles
CO 48 STs.
Row 1: Knit till end (48)
Row 2: Purl till end (48)
Repeat Row 1 and 2 until your piece measures the circumference of your head. For the hat I made, I stopped after it measured 40 cm (16 inches) long and casted off.
Cast Off. Leave long tail to sew the sides and the tops of the hat together. I used the mattress stitch to sew the sides of the hat and just stitched the top of the hat until there were not holes anymore to complete the hat.
Once you finish sewing the hat together you can weave in the ends. I decided not to add a pom pom to this hat, but you can make some pom poms and attach it to the top of the hat to add a cute touch to the hat. I discuss pom pom making in the newborn Santa hat pattern.
Done! This hat is very basic so it will make the perfect last minute Christmas present! Have fun making your own bulky yarn knitted hat.
