Beginner Flat Knit Hat Knitting Pattern

Beginner Flat Knit Hat Knitting Pattern- if you can knit a scarf, you can make this hat!

Beginner Flat Knit Hat Knitting Pattern by Gina Michele

Knitting patterns for hats usually involve circular and double point needles. The patterns generally run the gamut from basic to advanced, but rarely are they so simple any beginner could knit them.  This Beginner Flat Knit Hat knitting pattern is here to change all that! The entire hat is knit flat on single point needles. The stitches are a combination of knit and purl. Once you’re finished knitting, the side and top seams of the hat are sewn. A simple running stitch is created at the top to gather.

This pattern is as easy as they come and it’s perfect for beginners who want to move beyond knitting scarves. Enjoy!

    Is one ball of yarn enough for this hat?
