In autumn, there are wonderful, rich colors that are found in nature. Red, gold, orange, brown and dark green, are all fantastic colors for fall hats. Support your favorite football team with a purple and black Ravens knit hat or an orange and black O’s beret. It is a fun way to combine creativity, sports and knitting!
It does not matter the age of the hat-wearer. There are plenty of knitting patterns available for a small fee, or even free, for creating fabulous hats. Use fall fibers like wool or wool blends for more serious hats. Use furry or other novelty yarns for more fun projects.
Slouchy hats are a great look for many. Knit this hat for a casual walk in the park, Sunday brunch or visiting to a flea market. This pattern, for Another Slouchy Hat, will be fine for beginners or pros alike.
Longer outdoor excursions might require something that keeps the ears warm. This Ear Flap Hat works really well. If you are not a fan of braids, you can substitute I cord for the braided parts on this ear flap hat. Look amazing while snowboarding, at outdoor sporting events or taking long hikes in the woods while adding protection for your ears.
Knitting for babies and kids can be a lot of fun. This Baby Tart hat, which is a little more challenging than some knit hats, will look stylish on either boys or girls. And the Silly Hair hat will get the child in your life giggling with joy. You are not restricted by “hair” colors that are found in nature – use your imagination to make this hat a huge hit.
When you knit for the colder months, keep in mind that natural fibers are less likely to cause static shock. Get those needles humming and crank out some great looking hats!
