This warm easy knit hat pattern is a fast and fun quick knitting project. And for those of you who prefer working on straight knitting needles this is a two-needle hat pattern for you to enjoy.
Sometimes I do prefer knitting hats on 2 needles and I'm sure some of you do too. I just find it a little easier.
This easy hat pattern will make a great last minute gift or a super project if you're knitting for charity plus it's simply a nice easy knitting project.
For beginner knitters this easy knit hat is a little more detailed than my garter stitch hat pattern. This one has a little more shaping at the top.
For all you experienced knitters out there this is simply a nice relaxing quick knitting project to enjoy. And again if you like knitting hats for charity this hat is a great choice as it knits up in no time and will fit most adults.

K2tog (Knit 2 sts together)
Gauge 2.5 sts and 4.5 rows = 1 inch
Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick
Needles US 13 (9mm) and 15 (10mm)
K, k = knit
P, p = purl
K2tog = knit 2 sts together
Notes: This hat pattern will fit most adults because it's nice and stretchy. When I designed it I made it for a head measurement of 20 inches however it really is very stretchy and will fit most adults.
The measurement from the crown to the ribbing is about 9 inches (sewn up) so it actually fits really nicely on your head.
With smaller needles (US 13) cast on 52 sts. I used the long tail cast on.
Knit 2 X 2 (K2, P2) for 2 inches.
Switch to larger needles (US 15) and knit garter stitch until work measures 7 inches from beginning.
Row 1: K2, k2tog across row
Row 2: Knit 3 rows
Row 5: K2tog across row
Break yarn and thread through tapestry needle. Push needle and yarn through remaining sts and pull tight. Push needle through sts one more time.
Seam up and weave in ends. Enjoy!
