Winter seems to be here, and we're thinking of all of the quick knits that will keep ourselves and loved ones warm. These hats satiate the need for quick projects that are easy enough to work on while bingeing your favorite shows.
The Classic Ribbed Hat from Purl Soho, shown bottom left, is knit from the luxe, yet accessible, Blue Sky Fibers Eco Cashmere. It would also knit up beautifully in some of our other favorite DK weight yarns. Grab Brooklyn Tweed Arbor (two skeins to be safe) or use a hand dyed yarn like Yarn Less Traveled DK to knit one of these classic caps.
The Vermonter, by Abi Gregario and shown top center, is a quick knit made from Woolfolk Hygge on size 11 needles. Add a faux fur pom pom or make your own for added interest. If you're looking for a brighter palette, use Malabrigo Rasta instead!
And bottom right is the Barley Hat by Tin Can Knits, a classic ribbed brim hat that we knit up in Blue Sky Fibers Woolstok. Sizing ranges from baby to adult, so this is the perfect knit for the whole family. Use Malabrigo Rios for a bright, superwash version, or Woolfolk Far for the softest hat you'll ever have your hands on.
We hope this guide helps with gift knitting and also gives you inspiration for hats to knit for yourself.
