Flat Knit Swirl Hat Free Knitting Pattern
This medium weight hat is perfect for fall days! The swirl pattern adds visual interest and the tweed colors as perfect for this time of year. This is a relatively easy hat to knit- just make sure you keep track of the rows.
This Swirl Hat knitting pattern looks complicated, but it's actually really easy! It's knit on straight needles, side to side. The increases and decreases at the ends create a horizontal shape. When you bring the ends together and sew the seam, a swirl pattern is created. The stitches are then picked up on either straight, circular or double point needles to knit the brim.
Happy knitting!
