Take cover! With the end of fall comes the beginning of winter and you know what that means – hello, freezing temperatures! Don’t wait until it’s too late and (pardon the pun) get caught out in the cold. Instead, start working on one of these crochet or knit hat patterns now and use it all year long. Whether you prefer a hook or can’t live without a pair of needles, there are plenty of free patterns on FaveCrafts to satisfy your DIY craving. Don’t spend big money on a simple beanie you could easily create at home. Use that money on something else (a warm beverage perhaps?) and show off your considerable craft skills.
We’ve pulled together some of our favorite knit and crochet patterns to keep you busy all autumn long. Make a hat for yourself and a few for family or friends – this is a great Christmas gift option!
Hat Knitting Patterns
If you knit, you know it takes a while to complete a project. For this reason, it’s important start working on these hats today. That way, you’ll never have to leave home without a warm head covering. There are plenty of options for hat patterns and you can make one for everyone in your family. This year, give a handmade Christmas gift that people can actually use. It’s fair to say you might become a very popular gift giver, so prepare yourself for plenty of requests and compliments.
Crochet Hat Patterns
Crochet patterns for winter hats may seem complicated, but that doesn’t always have to be the case. In fact, there are actually so many free and easy patterns that you can make. Why not test your skills and create a single-color beanie or hat? If you have a little more crochet experience under your belt, try your hand at a more complicated pattern like the Faux Trapper Hat. After all, who wouldn’t love to receive a big flouncy hat during the holiday season?
