Knitted Hat With Garter Stitch Brim and Flower

knit hat pattern with brim

I am crushing on this cute hat with flower embellishment, big time.  It is so fun to wear and simple to knit.  I knitted the hat last year, then crocheted the flower recently to jazz things up a bit.  It is the perfect addition and I am excited to share how I did it with you.  If you make your own, come share pictures with me, please!

***Pattern***

Worsted or aran weight yarns may be used, but please check gauge.
Gauge 17sts x 26 rows in stockinette stitch = 4 inches or 10cm
Gauge does not have to be exact, as the hat is stretchy.  This pattern makes a hat to fit most teens and adult females.

5.5mm (US #9) dpns or circular needles

If using circular needles, a length of 40 inches is recommended for magic looping throughout.

  15. Hi, Ilove the blue flower on your pretty hat!
    I am trying to make one and I noticed that you have 7 back row petals followed by 6, then 5 on the picture. Then I read the directions for making the flower and there are 11, 11, then 5 petals. Is the direction for a different flower?
    Thank you!

  16. I sent you a email for the pattern Cross Comfort Cap. I got the email back. But what i was wanting is the pattern by it’s self. I don’t have the download you have on the pattern

    I don’t like all the comments that is at the end, to print out. I think it is a waste of paper. Since I’m on a fixed income. i kit a lot of chemo hats and caps for cancer patiences.

    Please just send me the pattern
    Sincerely, Mable Somerville rmsomerville@msn.com
