Pattern Description:

This is the ultimate, quick knit hat! Made from one skein of super bulky yarn, this hat is easily made in an evening, and will be very appreciated, by the practical, or hard to shop for man!

Made in a washable, acrylic and wool blend, this hat is easy care; the yarn comes in lots of great colors; and it makes for an inexpensive (but no less appreciated) gift!

***Please note: I have combined 2 patterns (with earflaps and without), so this listing is the same as the Quick Knit Watchcap.***

These hats are very popular, amongst my family and friends! They are just warm and practical! For the outdoorsman, or working man, nothing is more welcome.....

This is sized for adult men, and has lots of stretch, to fit lots of head sizes.
Without the earflaps, this hat can easily be made in a couple of hours! Also, I can make 2 hats (without earflaps) out of one skein!
This hat would also be appropriate, for his and hers gifts.


Guage: 9 sts., 12 rows=4", in Stockinette, on Size 13 Needles

I have always been inspired, by hand knit items, but it seemed beyond reach, for me...until I took some knitting classes!
From there, it became my relaxation, and creative outlet!
My passion is designing, and I love to spin my own yarns, as well!
I love to see the finished product, on the baby models....
