Amanda is a new pretty knitter and she really wanted a simple hat she could knit to wear this fall. Unfortunately the pattern she used for this hat has since disappeared from the internet, but we have several other recommendations for you. The Windhelm Hat (free pattern) is similar but features a K2, P2 rib brim instead of a K3, P1 brim like Amanda's hat. The decreases at the top are also slightly different. Another similar option is our Knitted Hats for the Whole Family (free pattern) or Kristen's free Hipster Hat pattern. Either one of these will work and you can adjust the brim patterning to your liking.
The pattern Amanda used called for just one skein of Malabrigo Worsted Merino, and US size 8 & 9 needles. The result is a cozy hat that she'll wear all winter long! Nice job Amanda!
