You’ve seen the headlines: Knit hats are hot! More than just a great way to keep your noggin warm, they provide a dash of color and style and are the perfect way to top off an outfit.

Hats are often one of the first projects a knitter takes on (after a scarf or two!) and remain favorites with more experienced stitchers. There are many reasons why knitters continue to cast on for caps. They’re easy to knit on the go. They’re ideal small projects for trying out new knitting techniques and patterns. And because they’re quick to make, don’t use a ton of yarn, and are easier to fit than a sweater, knit hats make great gifts.

We asked our favorite knitwear designers to put on their thinking caps to come up with a fresh collection of irresistible hat patterns for our new collection, The Knitted Hat Book.

We’re head over heels with the designs they came up with. They’ve covered all the most popular shapes and stitch patterns. Simple beanies come alive in Fair Isle, cables, lace, and slip stitch. Buttons, bows, flowers, and appliques adorn feminine cloches. Classic berets and tams are given a fresh look with striking stitch patterns. Unusual shapes, such as a tied kerchief and a tasseled paperbag hat, go beyond the basics. Here are just a few of the hats you’ll find in The Knitted Hat Book:

In this diverse assemblage, you’ll find head coverings suitable for every season and for all knitting skill levels. Best of all? Many of the designs in this fabulous compilation are suitable for him or her, so everyone is covered.

The Knitted Hat Book also includes some great tips from hat designers, such as this one: “When blocking a hat over a plate, thread yarn between the brim and body to cinch tight. This keeps the brim from stretching out.” —Heather Zoppetti

About Kathleen Cubley

Hello daily knitters! I'm the editor of Knitting Daily. I've been obsessed with knitting for about ten years now and my favorite projects are sweaters. I like the occasional smaller project, but there's nothing like yards of stockinette with a well-placed cable or a subtle stitch pattern here and there. I crochet a bit now and then—especially when I need to produce a baby blanket in time for the baby shower. I've been in publishing for 20 years and I'm finally exactly where I want to be: at the crossroads of knitting and communication. I live in Spokane, Washington and when I'm not knitting I enjoy gardening, snuggling with my dogs, swimming, reading, and playing in the snow in the winter. But, really, I'm pretty much always knitting!
