What’s better than a free hat pattern? 12 free hat patterns, of course! This year we’re releasing a new, free hat design on the 3rd Tuesday of each month made in Germantown.

We see the July Hat as a sweet little break from summertime schedule madness. An easy-to-memorize stitch pattern produces a cute and functional end result, and your mid-December head will be thanking your mid-July hands for thinking ahead to cooler temps.

In conjunction with the release of the designs, we’re also offering limited kits that include a custom leather tag, yarn for sewing the tag on (in both contrast and matching colors), and one skein of Germantown in the recommended color. Find the kit on our site here or ask for it at your favorite LYS!

Worthy of Note
The July Hat is worked in the round from the bottom up. After working the ribbed brim, increases are worked for the body. The body is worked in a large graphic triangle pattern, and integrated decreases shape the crown. Both charted (p.4) and written instructions are provided.
