Cranberry Swirl Hat Knitting Pattern

November 9, 2018

Cranberry Swirl Hat Knitting Pattern- a cozy and colorful hat that’s ideal for beginners!

Kids Swirl Hat Knitting Pattern by Gina Michele

This swirl stitch may look complicated, but it’s actually very easy! It’s created by wrapping the yarn over the front of the needle and then knitting the next 2 stitches together. Once you get the hang of it, this project moves right along!

For this Cranberry Swirl Hat Knitting Pattern, I used one of my favorite yarns- Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick. This yarn is warm, easy to knit and it comes in a bunch of lovely autumn colors.

Enjoy the pattern and happy knitting!
