COLE HAT

Share with friends... ↓

Cole is the perfect winter hat; form-fitting with lots of textured fabric. Made with super bulky yarn, this free hat pattern can be knit over and over again in no time at all. It’s also incredibly warm and comforting on a cold, cold day.

If you make the Cole hat and would like to share a photo with me, please join my Facebook group, Knitter’s Playground. I love to see your projects!

With its versatility and affordability, Bernat Softee Chunky is the perfect choice for this easy knit hat pattern, and it just couldn’t be any nicer to work with. Super soft and lovely, this affordable acrylic yarn is machine washable for ease of use. Even better, the Cole Hat requires only one skein of Softee Chunky to be completed!
