If you want to knit hats without a pattern and make every hat a one of a kind creation that also fits well (a nice bonus!), I’ve got a recipe for you.
This recipe is not linked to a particular yarn, so you can use the yarn that you already have in your stash.
Because the recipe is based on the head measurements, it can be applied to fit any head. To make sure the hat fits well, it’s better to start knitting it from the top and down to the brim. This way we can try it on as many times as we need and adjust it (if required) while it is still on the needles.
The recipe is quite simple once you understand what you are doing. To make it clear, I will explain every step of the process and every nuance that matters. This will take some time, but once you understand the process, you will be able to make hats for anyone without any specific pattern.
As a bonus, I added a pattern for a cute toddler hat and a collection of stitch patterns with stripes worked in 2, 3 and 4 colours.
