Easiest Flat Knit Kids Garter Stitch Hat

September 3, 2020

Easiest Flat Knit Kids Garter Stitch Hat- if you can knit a scarf, you can make this hat!

This pattern is perfect for beginner knitters who want to move beyond the basic scarf. This hat is as simple as you can get! It’s knit on single point needles using the garter stitch (knit every row). There’s no shaping at the crown. You make a rectangle, sew the side seam, and boom! you have a hat!

I used Lion Brand Scarfie for this pattern. it’s soft, easy to work with and it comes in an array of pretty ombre colors. If you’d like to use another yarn, any #4 weight yarn will do.

This kids hat features a wide brim and it’s topped with a fluffy pom pom.

If you’re looking for additional sizes (men, women), I will post them this month!
