Mens Thick and Quick Hat Knitting Pattern- the ultimate cold-weather hat knit using Lion Brand’s Thick & Quick yarn. Beginner-friendly pattern!
Lion Brand’s Wool-Ease Thick & Quick is one of my favorite yarns to use for winter hats. I freature it frequently here on the blog. The super-bulky weight is ideal for cozy hats and scarves. Thick & Quick comes in a huge array of colors including self-striping.
This men’s beanie features a rib stitch design and a wide brim. This easy knit hat can be completed in an evening thanks to the super bulky yarn and large needles.
