The Best Hat Ever

The name speaks for itself.

I am so incredibly excited to be releasing my most recent pattern: the Best Hat Ever.

The name speaks for itself.

The name says it all.


This hat has it all. Simple. Fun. Stylish. Just different enough to be exciting. Not so difficult as to cause undue stress, misery, or tears.

A perfect Just Because knit. A timely only-two-months-left-of-holiday-knitting-holly-crap!!! knit. Or, my-best-girlfriend-deserves-something-special knit.

Whatever your fancy, this hat is a winner.

Scout’s honor.

Choose to embellish the Best Hat Ever with a knitted flower or forego the accessory to the accessory. The hat works either way. It’s like deciding between merlot and pinot noir. You simply can’t go wrong.

The textured brim, a simple combination of knit and slipped stitches, is divided from the clean, upper stockinette section with a single round of knitted chain stitch. Step by step written instructions are included in the pattern.

Of course.

This hat is sized to fit an adult woman but can easily be adjusted by changing the cast on in multiples of ten. Easy peasy.

Big head? No problem.

Want to knit one for your young daughter? Don’t sweat.

For pattern development, I used Madelinetosh Tosh DK in Fallencloud on size 6 (4 mm) needles, but the pattern is flexible and can be knitted with other yarns.

All instructions are provided in both English and metric units. This is the first time I have offered a pattern that actually looks sharp and professional. Hello, graphic design! Works wonders. I can’t wait to reformat my earlier patterns. Even a knitting pattern needs a little spruce up now and then.

You can find the Best Hat Ever on Ravelry for $3.00 USD.
