Winter is in full force and that means cold weather accessories are a must! I never leave home without a hat (and one for Indigo too). I have them stashed everywhere, in the car, in my purse, in the baby bag...you get the idea! I love colorful hats knit in chunky yarn, and bonus points for ear flaps. Here are 8 of my go-to winter hat free knitting patterns. PS- they're beginner friendly! Happy Knitting!
