Knitting Daily is proud to offer these seven free knitted hat patterns just for you to enjoy! Whether you are a veteran at knitting hats or are just learning how to knit a hat, there is the perfect knitted hat pattern waiting for you among this unique collection.


Free Knitted Hat Pattern #1

Ridged Helmet Hat by Ann Budd

This unique style of hat was inspired by the 1940's era of knitted hats. It is a close-fitting hat, much like the ones people wore back then. Budd used alpaca yarn in this free knitted hat pattern, which is a lot softer than the wool that was used to knit a hat in the 1940's. She also worked the hat inside out, so she could knit more rows than she purled. Adding a three color braided tassel helps bring a flash of color and a bit of fun to this free knitted hat pattern.

Free Knitted Hat Pattern #2

Andean Earflap Hat by Mary Jane Mucklestone

Inspired by one of her favorite knitting books, Andean Folk Knitting, Traditions and Techniques from Peru and Bolivia, Mucklestone decided to make her very own adaptation of the fashionable earflap hat. Using a Shetland diamond for the color work motif, this free knitted hat pattern is meant to be done with the stranded stockinette stitch, which creates long floats on the first and last rows of the motif. It's time to brush up on classic knitting stitches, while making yourself, or someone special, this unique knitted hat classic, the earflap hat.

Free Knitted Hat Pattern #3

Army Girl Earflap by Lisa Shroyer

Lisa Shroyer has created a fabulously fun knit hat pattern. The earflaps of this free knitted hat pattern were made by bending the lower edge of the hat with shaping. Decreases along the centerline of the flaps make them curve downward, while increases curve the center back neck upwards. You will notice that the flared effect of the earflaps, combined with the round crown and strong line across the forehead, gives this hat a military look. Feel free to be creative when picking out the yarn color. It can be a girl's army knitted hat if you decide to go with a more girlie color, but choosing another color could easily give this girl's army knitted hat a more masculine feel.

Free Knitted Hat Pattern #4

Ryan's Hat by Pam Allen

Do you have trouble making knitted hats that actually fit your head correctly? Well Pam Allen has discovered the solution to this on-going problem with her knit hat pattern. Begin knitting your hat from the top down. All knitters know that when you are making knitted hats you always work from the rim to the crown. This is what results in knitted hats not fitting just right; they are either too tight, too loose, too short, and/or too long. Allen now makes her knitted hats from the top down, which is pretty much a foolproof method for getting a knit hat to fit. In this free knitted hat pattern Allen leads you step-by-step in making this perfectly fit knitted hat, which was named after her son Ryan. He picked the bold colors in her pattern, but each knitter is free to pick whichever color scheme makes them happiest.
Free Knitted Hat Pattern #5

Enchanted Evening Ear Covering by Sandi Wiseheart

Have you been searching for the best free knitted hat pattern that would work for more formal events? This knit hat pattern is your answer! Wiseheart has created the perfect knitting pattern to help guide you in making a formal hat that will keep you warm, while also looking great with your formal attire. The yarn she uses in this knitted hat pattern is actually made up of three different yarns: a railroad ribbon, a multi-hued silky twist, and a lovely merino. The drape of the yarn wouldn't work well for a traditional earflap hat, so Wiseheart decided to let the yarn guide her. She ended up with a simple mobius loop that is both dressy and practical. Wear this earflap hat with pearls and a little black dress. This knitted hat pattern can be yours for free when you download this eBook today.

Free Knitted Hat Patterns #6 and #7

Earflap Hat by Meema Spadola (left)

This free knitted hat pattern was inspired by Spadola's grandmother's backyard berry patch that was filled with raspberry, blackberry, and elderberry bushes. Although this hat is designed to be worn long after the berries are gone, this should bring back some tasty summer memories. When making this knit hat, Meema made extra long l-cord ties for fun, but you can always make them shorter. Enjoy making a summer inspired knit hat that will keep you warm all winter long.

Penobscot Bay Hat by Cyrene Slegona (right)

It wasn't until after Slegona finished this knit hat pattern that she realized the color arrangement she used reflected the colorscape she sees when she looks across the islands of Penobscot Bay in Maine on a sunny day. The finishing pom-pom is like a crowning cloud. If you are interested in making a knitted hat that is fun and leaves you with a beautiful result, this is the best free knitted hat pattern for you.
