Free Knitted Hat Patterns to Keep Your Melon Warm

Learning how to make a hat is one of the basics of knitting! Here are 20+ free knitted hat patterns to get you started – and to keep your head warm.

Over 20 free knitted hat patterns

I’ve been knitting for almost 30 years now. I might be dating myself, but I’ll just tell you – I learned when I was 15 years old! My mom taught me to cast on and I learned the rest.

I practiced on scarves, but once I was done with large, flat rectangles, I moved on to hats. And with the way the weather has been around the country lately, knitting a hat is just the thing to do these days.

Not only do they keep your head warm, but they make great gifts. Use a chunky yarn and they work up that much more quickly. If you want some free patterns for knitted hats, I’ve gathered over 20 I really love. Scroll down to see them!

I like to knit/crochet little hats for newborns. Has anyone got any cute patterns? I hate donating 50 hats that all look basically the same.
