Basic Bulky Hat

Each year I knit a few hats to donate to a local AHG event. The hats are used as door prizes at a weekend retreat for Pioneers and Patriots.  Early in the fall when I found this bulky yarn in the clearance bin, I knew I needed it.  (Lion Brand Hometown USA Tweeds in Sioux City Tweed).

I found a super easy hat by Shaina Billow on Ravelry (here). It features a simple 1×1 rib border and a stockinette stitch body.  The pattern is written to be knit flat and seamed, or in the round (I choose to work in the round). It also features two sizes, I opted for the smaller one since teenage girls often have smaller heads.

When a cold front hit the weekend of the retreat, the warm hats were a hit. The tweed yarn turned a pattern into a hat with character.

Happy Knitting.
