Year of Hats

What’s better than a free hat pattern? Twelve free hat patterns, of course! This year Kelbourne Woolens is releasing a new, free hat design each month here on the blog made in Germantown. It’s a soft, durable, 100% N. American Wool with ample yardage at a very affordable price point. We LOVE the vintage feel and style of this yarn. Find all 18 colors of Germantown here in our online shop.

This year we’re indulging our hat obsession. Hats are an easy commitment, provide a canvas ready for experimentation and teaching, and make great gifts! As an added incentive to jump on the Year of Hats bandwagon now, you’ll have a pile of giftable hats ready by next winter!

Each pattern PDF contains all the information you have come to expect from Kelbourne Woolens: clear, concise instructions, quality photographs, and tutorials and tips throughout.

The March Hat  is all about creature comfort⏤it features a nubbly texture stitch, an extra deep brim, a cozy slouch fit, and a big pompom for good measure.



The January Hat is full of cabely bobbley goodness and features integrated ribbing, large diamond cables, and many, many delightful bobbles. A pompon tops it all off and a cute custom KW tag completes the look.

The February Hat is Kate Gagnon Osborn's first contribution to the year of hats, and is full of elements in knitting that she really loves- a folded brim, textured stitches, stripes, and a pom pom. 


In conjunction with the release of the designs, we at Handknit Yarn Studio are stocking limited kits that include a custom leather tag, yarn for sewing the tag on (in both contrast and matching colors). In stock now!
