KAZA HAT

Share with friends... ↓

The Kaza Hat features a waffle stitch pattern; a super easy, 4-row repeat that creates a fun, dimpled texture. If you’re new to knitting and want something that’s more interesting than plain stockinette, but not too difficult to make, this hat is for you!

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

Super soft and lovely, this affordable acrylic yarn is machine washable for ease of use. The Kaza Hat uses less than one skein of Brava Bulky and will knit up in no time at all!

Weave in ends.
