Easy Knit Hat

by Kimberly Hickok

I’m trying really, really hard not to buy any yarn and to use up what I have so I’ve been knitting and crocheting hats. The good news is that I’ve made several hats. The bad news is that hats don’t use up a lot of yarn.¬†One of my favorite patterns is the Strib Hat. I found it over on Ravelry.

Sport weight, cotton, inexpensive acrylic, fingering and Noro. Some I bought but most has been given to me.

I’m not a quick knitter and it took me about three evenings to do while I was watching TV – and that’s another reason why I like this pattern. It didn’t require a lot of counting. Knit ribs of 4×4, 2×2 and then decreasing. Easy peasy.

I made the first one in shades of cream, tan and brown.

I asked my friend Carrie Marie, who never wears hats, to try it on and she looked so cute in it. She liked it so much she wanted one so I knit this one up for her.

If you’ve got a quick and easy hat pattern to recommend – knit or crochet – please leave a note in the comments below with a link. It’s the right thing to do – especially if it will help me make a dent in my yarn collection.
