Easy Flower Hat

from Lenas's Legacy Hand Knits
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Easy Flower Hat
Easy Flower Hat
Easy Flower Hat

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Cast on, knit, purl, bind off
  • Knit rounds with circular and double pointed needles

Pattern Description:

When the Charity Donation Coordinator for our chapter of The Knitting Guild Association put out an appeal for warm, easily washable hats for a local church's charity drive, I came up with this hat with a festive flower embellishment.

The hat is a basic knitted-in-the-round design and the flower is an easy knit. I'm offering this pattern for free in the hope you will download it and make a hat for a person in need. Of course if you're going to knit this for a man or boy, you can knit this up without the flower. I think a pom pom perched on top would also be festive!

As with all my designs, if you have any questions as you work up the design, please let me know. I want you to enjoy your knitting experience and end up with a successful project.

I hope you will make something wonderful to keep somebody warm this winter.
