Snowflake Bulky Knit Hat Pattern

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 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 but with a flavour of chilli pepper in its look. Follow the instructions below and enjoy knitting!

Knitting materials and knitting tools:

<> Circular (40 cm) or double pointed knitting needles, size 9 (US 13/UK 0)

<> Lion Brand Wool, Ease Thick & Quick – 20% wool, 80% acrylic. Color of your choice. In total 140 grams.

Snowflake knit hat size:

Adult: 54-58 cm

Gauge: 10 stitches in = 4 inches in stockinette

Common abbreviations of knitting stitches:

k – knit

p – purl

p2tog – purl two together

Body of the snowflake bulky knitting hat pattern:

Using long tail method cast on 44 stitches or any other number divisible by 2. Join to knit in the round being careful not to twist stitches. Place marker. Rib k1, p1 for 8 rows or until pieces measures 6 cm.

Row 1: purl all stitches around.

Row 2: [p1, k1] – repeat till the end of round.

Row 3: purl all stitches around.

Row 4: [k1, p1] – repeat till the end of round.

Repeat Rows 1- 4 until hat measures 19 cm from the edge. In my case I repeat Rows 1-4 four more times and then repeat again Rows 1-2.

Shaping the crown of snowflake hat:

Row 1: [p2tog] – repeat till the end of round.

Row 2: [p1, k1] – repeat till the end of round.

Row 3: [p2tog] – repeat till the end of round.

Row 4: [k1, p1] – repeat till the end of round.

Fasten off leaving 10 cm tail. Weave tail through remaining 11 stitches. Pull tail to close top. Weave in all ends securely.

Add your favorite faux or real fur pom pom.

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!

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.
