Easy Knit Vanna's Choice Yarn Hat

The simpler the better. That's what I say when it comes to any knit or crochet project. This hat is super easy and a great beginner's project. It's also a great pattern for quickly knitting hats as a last minute Christmas gift.

Yarn: Medium (4) worsted yarn. I used 1 skein of Vanna's Choice yarn.

Size 9 needles.

Cast on 70 leaving a long tail for sewing up seam.

Hat brim:      

Row 1: K1, P1 across.

Knit row 1 six times (6 rows total).

Hat pattern:

Knit every row until hat measures 9-1/2 inches. Bind off and leave a long tail for closing the top of the hat.

To put together, lay out hat on a flat surface. Bring right sides together so that the wrong side is facing you. Pin side edges together, making sure the rows are matching. Sew up the side of the hat, starting at the brim.

Use bind off tail and weave it in and out of the last row. Pull tight to gather hat's top and knot in place. Weave in the ends. Turn right side out and wear!
