Flat Knit Hat Free Knitting Pattern- perfect for beginner knitters! Knit this basic beanie on straight needles in one evening.
I’ve been getting a lot of reader requests asking for very simple knitting patterns. As you wish! If you’re new to knitting and you want to move beyond the basic scarf I have just the knitting pattern for you! This Flat Knit Hat Knitting pattern uses straight needles which are perfect for those who aren’t comfortable with circular needles yet. It’s so easy to make! There’s some minor shaping at the top, but other than that, this hat is knit almost like a scarf.
This hat is knit in rib stitch and it has a foldover brim.
This knit flat hat is made using chunky yarn and large needles. I think it took me under 90 minutes to make, which in the knitting world is a quick knit!
