Pincushion Hat

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit and purl
  • short rows
  • kitchener stitch/grafting

Pattern Description:

Quick knit using super-bulky yarn and short rows. Most of the hat is knit back and forth on straight needles, with only the small brim using circular needles.

Great for handspun yarn and held-together strands!

The pictured blue multicolor hat was made with an extra short row in each section to make it wider and more tam-like.


6.75 sts = 4 inches in stockinette stitch. This makes a fairly slouchy hat, for a closer fit shoot for 7-8 sts = 4 inches.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • one size fits most


  • size 17 US straight needles
  • 50-70 yards super bulky handspun yarn
  • size 15 US circular needle, 16" or 24"

You Will Also Need:

  • large yarn needle
  • stitch markers
