Knitted Hats Pattern

Hat Knitting patterns using handspun yarns

I like to use this simple but versatile pattern for knitting hats with my handspun yarns. It works for just about any size and thickness of yarn. You will need to knit a test swatch first.

I've had an interest in weaving, looms, yarns and textiles since I was a small child. I learned to knit, crochet, sew, do needlepoint at my mother's knee. My grandmother was a Saami from northern Norway. I am very interested in studying more about traditional Saami and Finnish style weaving and handicrafts. Paivi Suomi
