Best new hat patterns — Fall ’15

Best new hat patterns — Fall ’15

Fantastic new hat patterns have been publishing at a furious pace lately (and I know a lot of you are formulating your holiday hat-knitting lists), so I thought it was time to round up some of the most enticing ones—

1. Karusellen by Erica Smith — very likely my next colorwork project

2. City by Mari-Lynn Patrick —simple chic

3. Weston Beanie by Mary Jane Mucklestone — lovely, delicate colorwork

4. Fair Winds Beanie by Churchmouse Yarns (free pattern) — classic cables

5. Manx by Andrea Rangel — captivating criss-crossing cables

6. Spire by Shellie Anderson — architectural allover texture

7. Ponderosa by Melody Hoffman — sweet mix of textures

8. Kringla Hat by Jennifer Hagan — lighthearted mix of cables and bobbles and fluff

Of course, if you’re looking for hats to knit, I highly recommend the Fringe Hatalong patterns: Audrey, L’Arbre, Hermaness Worsted and Laurus (so far). And for more hat ideas and inspiration, scroll through the whole hats tag.

  1. The color work in the Weston beanie is really lovely. But I’m unreasonably picky about hat shape/head shape compatibility, and prefer berets/tams on my own noggin. A few that have caught my eye recently: the Orkney Fair Isle Tam by Elizabeth Lovick (Knitting Traditions), the Edgewater Tam by Elizabeth McCarten, and Thrift Hat by Outi Kater (for links to these and others, see my ravelry hat bundle: http://ravel.me/ascidiacea/ph).

  2. what are you favourite manly-man hats? The Fair Winds beanie would probably be what I would choose from this list for a manly gift.
