Cinnamon Hat

It’s almost Christmas, so it’s the time for last minute gift knitting! If you’re making something in a hurry you want it to be simple yet effective, and I hope this hat fits the bill. It’s knitted in soft chunky yarn with a wool content, making it super warm, but you could substitute any standard chunky from your stash. You need approximately 125m (136yds) of yarn. The hat is knitted in the round on circular needles, and fits a standard sized adult head. It features a simple cable pattern, and is topped with an optional pompom. The folded brim makes it very cosy.

The pattern is available for free, but if you’re not a knitter then I have a few of these hats for sale at The Leith Collective. If you knit this, please upload your projects to Ravelry or tag them on Instagram #cinnamonhat – it’s always so great to see what people have made!
