Diamond Knit Hat Pattern

January 31, 2020

Diamond Knit Hat Pattern- a textured take on a basic hat! 

Diamond Knit Hat Pattern

This Diamond Knit Hat Pattern is deceptively easy! The diamond pattern is created using alternating knit and purl stitches. This hat features a ribbed brim and a slouchy shape. 

This hat can be knit in an evening thanks to the super bulky yarn and large needles!
