It's time again to join us on the shop floor at This is Knit. Today we're hearing from Jacqui and Joy, with Maureen behind the camera! Click below to learn all about our favourite hat patterns and the nifty magnetic pom-poms we like to top them with. (Watch out for the part where the team are laughing so much the camera nearly falls to the floor!) Full links to the patterns and yarns used below.
The Filigree Hat Pattern is designed by Julie Knits in Paris for a DK yarn and is knitted here in Drury DK by Townhouse Yarns. It's worked from the bottom up with an intuitive lace pattern that is provided in both chart and written form.
The Kobuk Hat is a DK hat pattern by Caitlin Hunter that features some fun bobbles and twisted stitches. In the video our hat is knitted with Townhouse Yarns Drury and Abbey Lace held together. There is a range of sizes available (16”, 20”, 24”) and in our opinion, this is perfect gift knitting.
The Myra Hat is knit bottom-up, with a twisted-rib brim, trestle-inspired textured body, and twisted-rib crown. The Knox Mountain Knit Co. are Sasha and Willow, a design team from Kelowna whose designs are inspired by the gorgeous landscapes of the Okanagan Valley. The pattern includes options for three different sizes, a slouchy or beanie version, and is great for showcasing your favourite speckled yarn! Our sample is knit with John Arbon Knit by Numbers and features a rather fun magnetic pom-pom.
The Rhinebeck Hat by Woolly Wormhead is one for adventurous knitters with interesting construction and some fun short rows. Our hat sample was knitted by Lisa using Townhouse Yarns Drury DK. The panels are super quick to knit, and the pattern is easily adjusted for gauge, and working fewer or more panels helps you accommodate many sizes.
Phew, you made it to the end! Hopefully you are inspired to cast on a hat pattern this weekend! Do you have a favourite hat pattern that you could share with us in the comments?
