There’s no denying it, winter is coming. I’m dreaming of a white Christmas and all the jazz indeed, but don’t get me wrong. I hate it when my ears get cold. These knitted hat patterns are not only going to keep you warm, they’ll also make excellent gifts.
DIY Hats for Winter
I collected a couple of patterns for myself, and thought I’d share them with you also. I absolutely love the knit Owl Hat from Julie is Coco and Cocao, and of course the ever popular Messy Bun Hat from Red Ted Art. I’ve thrown in a few crochet hats as well, and for those of you who are at one with your sewing machine, I’ve got you covered as well. The Fleece Fun tutorial has sizing for your entire family.

DIY Hat Patterns
The Fun Faux Fur Hat is super easy and really quick to work up. Use your favourite fun fur yarn, and have a blast! These would also be really easy to whip up en masse for Holiday Gifts. The Big Hat is also a quick project and uses awesome, in the truest sense, yarn and finishes with a three needle bind off. It is also featured in my book Super Duper Knit Hats for Beginners. The Super Slouchy Hat is coziness at its’ best. Everybody should have a slouchy hat. Everybody.
The Braided Beanie, Matilda and Owl hats all use a cable pattern, and while you might hesitate if you are new to knitting – these hats are so worth it. Go ahead and give it a try.
If you are more of a crocheter – give the Plaid Slouchy Hat by Whistle and Ivy a try. And then you’ll want to be making all the things, in plaid. Right?
