It’s not often that you find hat knitting patterns that are sized for pretty much everyone you know, from newborn babies to large adults, and even less common to find a hat pattern that everyone in that range might universally like.
Underground Crafter has a great free pattern on her website for a Garter Rib Beanie, which can be made in any size with a single skein of the chosen yarn, and which is great for men, women and kids.
The pompom is a fun but totally optional choice if you’re knitting for men or boys who might not like it.
As I write this there’s the tiniest snow flurry happening outside my window, reminding me there’s plenty of winter left to knit hats in — and to wear knit hats in.
Do you have a go-to pattern for a hat that everyone loves? I’d love to hear about it!
