A Free Chunky Hat Pattern
This is free knitting pattern for a super cosy merino beanie hat, suitable for men and women. Knitted on 10mm (US17) needles, it will be finished within a couple of hours and you’ll have yourself (or someone special) a nice new hat!
I bought this gorgeous yarn specifically to make a beanie hat for my boyfriend for Christmas 2010. I really love the colours in it and the fact it is sooo chunky and soft. This is a great one to knit for a gift, as it only uses one ball of yarn and the pattern is really straight-forward so you’ll be done before you know it.
