Snowflake Bulky Knit Hat Pattern

Snowflake Bulky Knit Hat Pattern with Faux Fur Pom Pom

Snowflake chunky knit hat with faux fur pom pom

Summer is my favourite time for knitting – I have 7 projects on my needles and I would have even more projects if I were to have more needles sets. During the summer heat I am more productive and creative than during any other time. I’m full of ideas for new patterns and have enough energy to finish them along with all my house chores, exercise, and project sharing on social media. Today I’m happy to present a bulky snowflake hat pattern – simple and quick in the making chunky hat but with a flavour of chilli pepper in its look. Follow the instructions below and enjoy knitting!

Love this! It was my first project that wasn’t a dishcloth, and my first time knitting in the round. It was easy to do, and turned out beautifully!

Thank you Agnie and my congratulations !!!!!!! I have more super bulky hats on my blog so you can try them as well. Keep going!

My first knit hat that turned out nice! I’ve only made 1 other, but the top was so bulky it just looked bad. This one reduced stitches and got rid of that bulk! I lost my ability to walk and decided to learn to knit to keep busy and I love it. I will be trying more. I have a lot more to learn.

Hey Jennifer. Thanks for your feedback. I am sorry to hear that you lost your ability to walk but you are right you still can have lots of fun knitting and crocheting. I knit many years but every time I learn something new. Wish you stay well and healthy. Write me if you have any questions. Ann 🙂

I watch and learn from all your youtube tutorials. You are such a organized person in teaching someone how to knit hats step-by-step. Thank you. I was wondering if you had the pattern for the knit gloves in the photo with the hat? If you do, can I please get the pattern? I would like to make it to keep me warm in the winter. Would like to make for my grandchildren too. 🙂

Hi…there was a snowflake hat that was done and the color hat pink, aqua, beige in it. I have a photo. Was wondering what color yarn this was or brand of yarn. Would love to make one just like it.

It could be Alize baby wool when I was knitting in 2 strands of yarn together.

Lesa Laurence 20th October 2021 at 17:18

There was a hat made with pink, beige, and green yarn. Was wondering what yarn that was?

Knitting Guru 22nd October 2021 at 16:32

Hi Ann I don’t seem to be getting the pattern right for the snowflake bulky hat. This the 4th time I’ve made it and it always looks wrong. It doesn’t look like your. I would like to send a picture but I’m not sure how. I am using 40 stictches. I am making it for my nine year old daughter. Could you tell me what I might be doing wrong. [email protected]. Thank you

Thank you Norma!

My hat looked better on the wrong side, following all instructions, still looks nice but nothing like in the picture, knitted in the round on DPNs

Ann 3rd December 2022 at 16:28

Hi Shelly. Do not know where is the problem. I have seen many hats already knitted with this pattern.

Darcy 24th February 2023 at 11:58

I think I know what mistake you made; you might’ve knit with the needles working inside the round instead of outside. I just made mittens and I kept setting up my knitting in the round wrong so I was always working the ‘top’ side on my round instead of the ‘bottom’ side, which meant my needles were basically working inside the round instead of outside. Once I switched it so that my working yarn was coming from the top needle and I was picking up my stitches from the bottom needle, it both got easier and made my pattern make sense, instead of being the exact opposite of what I wanted. I only noticed this because after doing all my ribbing, the body was supposed to be stockinette but it was coming out garter. That made me realize I must be ‘pointing’ the wrong way somehow!

Hi! Thank you for the pattern!
How could I adjust it to fit a 2.5 years old toddler?
I would like to knit with a super bulky yarn I have (weight 6) – the label says that using 6.5mm needles with 10 sts over 14 rows would yield a 10cm*10cm (gauge).
Could you please help me adjust the pattern to fit the yarn I have and to a toddler size?
Thank you!!

Ann 8th January 2023 at 16:40

I would try 36-38 sts

Betsy Woody 15th July 2023 at 13:20

Is it ok to make items to sell from your patterns? I would credit you and use my own pics of course but wanted to ask. Thank you for a beautiful pattern!

CH Knitting 18th July 2023 at 13:10

Hey Betsy, yes, feel free to make and sell items based on my patterns as long as you credit the design back to my website. Thanks a lot for confirming it with me!

Betsy Woody 31st July 2023 at 08:12
