Snowflake Bulky Knit Hat Pattern

Summer is my favorite 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 flavor of chili 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:

You can always download ads FREE pattern by supporting my site and my work. Thank you!

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.

It sounds like this pattern is worked in the round; however I do not see where it says to join. Am I just missing it?

This was my first try at knitting in around. I knit 3 hats with this pattern… giving to my daughter/daughter-in-laws. They are beautiful, thanks for the great pattern. I am going to try your “Crown Jewel” pattern for myself. 🙂
