Preface

Knitting accessories is a great way for beginning knitters to build their skills while also creating something worth showing off. The only thing easier than knitting a hat is making a scarf and both can be as simple or complex as you’d like, depending on your choice of yarn and pattern.

This book is written for the knitter who is a newcomer to hats. All you need to know is how to cast on, knit, and purl. I have kept the patterns simple, but stylish. After knitting the hats in this book, I had friends and family lining up to adopt my samples. They aged from 18 to 82, so you can be sure that these styles are classically chic. Happy Knitting!

Chapter 1: Choosing Your Materials

Hats can be made for style, warmth, or both. Heavy yarns, like Bulky and Super Bulky, will yield a thick hat (like the Man’s Watch Cap later in this book). If you want something that drapes, use a lighter weight yarn.

In general, you are going to use yarns that range from Light Worsted to Chunky. The Craft Yarn Council set these standards for categories, gauges, and recommended needle sizes, so you will see one of these symbols on the yarn’s label:

For knitting the hats in this book, you will be using yarns rated MEDIUM (#4), BULKY (#5), and SUPER BULKY (#6).

*Above: 16 To 20 Stitches/4 Inches (U.S. Needle Size 7 To 9)*

*Above: 12 to 15 stitches/4 inches (US needle size 9 to 11)*

*Above: 6 to 11 stitches/4 inches (U.S. needle size 11 and larger)*

Choosing The Correct Yarn

Once you have chosen your pattern, the next step is to decide on the yarn. You should note the weight category specified in the pattern (e.g., Worsted, Bulky) to avoid having to re-calculate your stitches. Another important consideration is the yarn’s fiber. Wool is warm, but can be itchy, depending on the type of wool. Shetland, for example, is rough but merino is wonderfully soft and is often referred to as the
