Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit, purl, knit 2 together, slip stitch, pass over, knit in front and back of stitch.

Pattern Description:

This is a ziggity-zaggity hat. I love making ripples and was inspired to make a hat using them. This is what I came up with. I think it is reminiscent of a 1930's look for some reason. This is a simple zig-zag/ripple all in garter stitch except for a few rows of stockinette to finish it up at the crown. The use of a varigated yarn as the main yarn will really add to it's interest. A very small amount of 2 contrast color yarns are needed for striping. This is a one-size pattern that should fit an average woman's size head. Gauge is 5 sts & 7 rows = 1". Suggested yarns would include Malabrigo Rios, Knit Picks Chroma, to name a few.

You will knit the main part of the hat, simple sewing for the seam, then pick up and knit the crown in the round with the double points.

A simple pattern repeat, easy to memorize. A fast knit that will make a great gift or craft show item. As with all my patterns please feel free to make and sell as many as you want!


5 sts & 7 rows = 1"
