Men’s Hat Patterns

A lot of knitters and crocheters are people who have men in their lives that they love to make things for. But many of us are attracted to fun pompoms, complicated stitch patterns, and slouchy hats that the dudes in our lives would just not be into. And I’m guilty of this, too. So if you’re looking for some simple, manly hat patterns, you’ve come to the right place. And most of these are crochet! I often lean towards knitting patterns when knitting for men because the fabric ends up being thinner, which is what Mr Evangelist prefers, so I know what a challenge it can be for crocheters to find a good men’s hat pattern. But there are plenty included here! Check them out and try one today!

Who says men’s hats have to be plain? This textured Arrowhead Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern is a great example of a manly hat pattern with a lovely stitch pattern. This pattern comes in 6 sizes, from baby to adult large, so you can make one for the whole family! Add a pompom if you like and it’s a stylish hat for anyone!

And who says men and boys can’t wear a slouchy hat? Check out this lovely Portland Slouchy Hat and Cowl Set Crochet Pattern. It mimics a knit seed stitch and has a lovely slight slouch to it. It comes in 5 sizes from 6 months to adult, so again, you can make this set for anyone in the family! CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE PORTLAND SLOUCHY HAT AND COWL SET CROCHET PATTERN.

Who says men’s hat patterns have to be solid colours? The Big Bay Beanie Crochet Pattern is a great multi-coloured pattern worked up with chunky weight yarn in 5 colours and it’s simple enough for a beginner/advanced beginner. I believe this pattern is also available for free on the designer’s blog, but for just a few bucks you can grab an easy-to-read, printable pdf pattern: CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE BIG BAY BEANIE CROCHET PATTERN.

Simple hats like the Basic Knit Beanie for Men and Boys Knitting Pattern is the kind of pattern I usually make for Mr Evangelist. He’s already got a pretty big head, so he doesn’t want to add the bulk of a thick and chunky hat to it. Also, while he’s trying to stay warm, sometimes those chunky hats make him too hot. He’s already pretty hot (woot woot!) so we don’t want to overdo it. 😉 The decreases on this knit hat pattern make a lovely swirled crown that sits nice and flat on the head. It’s a great guide to learning decreases. CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE BASIC KNIT BEANIE FOR MEN AND BOYS KNITTING PATTERN.

For a slightly textured ribbed crochet hat pattern, check out this Men’s Slouchy Knit-Look Crochet Hat Pattern. I love that it’s not super slouchy. That’s just the right amount of slouch for the men that I know. This is an intermediate crochet pattern in two adult sizes. It uses worsted weight yarn, so it’s a lovely project for some of that worsted weight yarn you have in your stash. CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE MEN’S SLOUCHY KNIT-LOOK CROCHET HAT PATTERN.

The Ribbed Wonder Crochet Hat Pattern is another super easy beginner crochet pattern for a classic simple crochet hat using chunky weight yarn. This works up quickly to make a timeless hat that the man in your life will love. I believe this pattern is also available for free on the designer’s blog, but I love to have a pattern I can print out, take with me and mark up as I go. For just a few bucks, it’s absolutely worth it! CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE RIBBED WONDER CROCHET HAT PATTERN.

Of course, if you’re really looking for a costume hat or a fun pattern for a little boy, this Knight Helmet Crochet Hat Pattern is a ton of fun. For those of us in cold climates, Halloween can be unpredictable, but it is usually chilly here, so a warm hat to wear out trick-or-treating is a great idea. And many little boys like to play pretend year-round, so a fun hat like this knight helmet can be made for Halloween and worn all winter long! CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE KNIGHT HELMET CROCHET HAT PATTERN.

Colourwork Beanies

Knit hats, toques, beanies, winter caps: whatever you call them they’re cuter with a fun pattern knit into them. Colourwork is a skill that is a little intermediate, but usually, these kinds of projects only require the basic knit and purl stitches. You just add some colours in there for a fun design. These kinds of projects are great for using up a partial skein of yarn and you can play around with colours to your heart’s content! I’ve found a bunch of great knit hat patterns for you to try out your intarsia or fair isle skills!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

Maybe it’s just because I’m a sucker for mustard, but the Sedona Diamond Fair Isle Beanie Pattern has a cute diamond design that is geometric and fun. Knit with chunky yarn, this hat would work up quickly, and with just two colours, it would make a good first colourwork project!

More diamonds! More mustard! The Fair Isle Diamonds Knitting Hat Pattern is another bulky weight knit hat pattern with just two colours to make another good first colourwork project. Which diamond pattern would you choose? I’m having trouble picking one…

It’s always kind of fun to have a cheeky word on your hat. Maybe you like this Wine Beanie Knitting Pattern from LadyJayCrochet will inspire you to make one of these bulky weight cheeky hats for a friend or loved one this year. That is the beauty of small bulky weight yarn projects like hats; they work up in just a couple of hours!

Maybe you’re more of a coffee lover? Well, there’s a toque for you, too! The Coffee Beanie Knitting Pattern is just the right pattern for your friend who doesn’t go anywhere without their cup of joe.

The Minnehaha Hat Knitting Pattern is a classic “little hearts” knitting pattern. If you’re new to knitting, those little hearts are just one knit stitch made in a different colour. So it’s really fun to see it come together in dotted little hearts. This pattern is also worked up in a super bulky weight yarn, so it will only take you about 1-2 hours to knit up this little beauty! Imagine making one of these for baby in the same colours as a coffee hat for mama? Adorable little matching “set”!

The Big Heart Beanie Knitting Pattern is a beginner level pattern with video tutorials, and the heart isn’t actually knit into the hat, it’s embroidered on afterwards! So you wouldn’t even have to do any colourwork on this one to achieve the same stunning results!

If you have a little more time on your hands and skill under your belt, Grandpas Garden Fair Isle Hat Knitting Pattern is a sweet-looking little hat, knit with much finer wool, but then you can achieve the gorgeous detail of a dainty garden full of flowers! As we’re yearning for spring in late winter, this hat can bring a little joy as we dress for the elements!

How about some handmade first married Christmas gifts for your favourite newlyweds? The Mrs Beanie Knit Hat Pattern and the Mr Beanie Knit Hat Pattern are matching set for a new husband and wife team.

The Big Zig Beanie Knitting Pattern is another colourwork pattern using bulky weight yarn. I love the sideways chevron design on this sweet beanie. Imagine all the colour combinations you could use on this cute hat pattern!

The Riverbend Beanie in 6 sizes is a perfect hat pattern to whip up the whole family fun and warm winter hats with stripes! The multi-coloured yarn matched with the cream adds a lot of fun to this basic striped hat.

There are so many great bulky weight yarn colourwork hats this year! The Aspen Beanie Knitting Pattern has a simple but interesting design, wouldn’t get boring to knit at all! And again with that large yarn, works up quickly as a last-minute handmade gift!

Using only 2 colours and bulky weight yarn, the Skyfall Beanie Knitting Pattern comes with two charts to make two different hats with slightly different designs on them. This is the perfect project for beginners who want to dive into the world of fair isle knitting and a nice quick knit for the fair isle pros. The pattern includes detailed instructions and a tips and tricks page to help you along the way, as well as a very inconspicuous join/jog in the charts!

Finally The Mountaineer Toque Knitting Pattern. I love the trees and the mountains in the background. If you’re venturing out into the great outdoors this winter, this adorable hat would be just perfect! Inspired by the Coastal Mountains of British Columbia, this fair isle knitting pattern is great for adventurous beginners and well as seasoned knitters. Fun for everyone!

So which hat will you choose? With so many options, it is hard! Whatever you choose, it can’t be the wrong decision! So jump in, grab a pattern and a couple of balls of different coloured yarn and get to work! Or pin it for later.

True Love Knits (and Crochets)

I know, I know, Valentine’s Day is just over a week away and you have already finished all your handmade gifts for your sweethearts. Oh, what’s that you say? You haven’t? Well, I have a few ideas for you.

One of my favorite sayings about knitting for other people goes like this: Knitting is like sex. If I love you and you appreciate it, it’s free, otherwise, you can’t pay me enough. Knitting and crocheting is definitely an act of love. The amount of time that goes into handmade items makes them so valuable and cost prohibitive that most people would say they can’t afford them.

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

First off this adorable True Love Beanie pattern is so simple and cozy looking, I just want to make one for each of my kids and take ridiculously adorable matching pictures of them to make them hate me because they’re too old for that stuff (but they’re not and they’d be soooo cute!).

Here’s another lovely crochet pattern, striped-with-textures, The Sweeney Beanie from HookYarnsandLoops looks cozy and warm with a lovely interest! It looks great for crocheters who get bored with the same stitch fast!

The Amelia Beanie Crochet Pattern from AshleighRaeCrochet is yet another lovely textured crocheted hat pattern (with a swoon-worthy faux fur pom!) to crochet up that has a slouchy, textured-stripe. So fun. I need to make one of these, too!

There’s still plenty of winter ahead for us Canadians, so there’s still plenty of time to make up a lovely handmade hat from an independent designer. Which one will you make? Pin it to share or save for later!

Double Brim Knit Hats

Have you seen this technique for a knit hat brim? These colour-block beanies are very popular right now and this seamless brim is such a great technique for creating a simple hat edge without using ribbing (but you can) or ending up with a rolled edge. So all you need to do is knit (no purling)! It also gives you the opportunity to learn a new technique: provisional cast on, though I’ll include a link to a video that doesn’t require a provisional cast on as well as the provisional cast on. It’s worth learning because the provisional cast on results in a seamless and stretchier brim. Check out these patterns for double brim knit hats that are so popular now and learn a new technique while you’re at it!

First, there’s this super simple pattern in just one colour and straight-forward stockinette stitch, The Doubly. This pattern includes video tutorials and the double brim beanie pattern from Heart Hooked by Tilly.

For a two colour option, you can pick up this Bremner Beanie knitting pattern, which comes in 5 sizes from Amy Wood and Wool.

Or try this option from DeBross NYC, which promises to be a little more slouchy. The slouchy beanies are still super popular this year.  The Savante Two Tone beanie looks great topped with a faux fur pom pom!

By adding just one more colour, you can create this trendy Double Brim Hiker Beanie. This pattern from True North Knits Co comes in sizes for the whole family. Wouldn’t winter family photos be so fun with everyone in one of these adorable hats?

Or you can add a bit of a pattern with this Fisherman Toque by Lamb and Co Designs. I love the super bulky yarn used for this beanie; it makes for a super quick project!

If you’re looking for a more involved pattern and love colourwork, check out this Lake Louise Toque knitting pattern from Woollie and Weft. Isn’t that deep teal colour beautiful?! Love it!

Take some time this winter to learn this new technique of the double brimmed hat. This video is a great tutorial if you already have a good idea of how to make a provisional cast on and you’re working in stockinette. This video has instructions for a provisional cast on, but it is worked in rib stitch, so it’s a little different, but not difficult to adapt to stockinette. And this video includes a whole pattern for free and does not require a provisional cast on. She does show you that you will get a seam, which I do not prefer, so I would use one of the other options for a cast on.

Let me know if you make one of these! Or pin it for later and to share with the world!

Beautiful Beanies

Hats! Toques! Beanies! Winter Caps! Warmth for your head! Check out this wonderful collection of warm winter hats to knit and crochet! Time to get out the yarn and get working! Christmas is coming and these hats would make an awesome handmade gift that anyone would be delighted to receive!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

I love this cabled Alpine Beanie Pattern. It looks knit, but it’s crochet! 

I’ve posted other plaid crocheted hat patterns before, but if you’re a knitter, this Pumpkin Pie Knitting Pattern is a great chunky knit hat for you to practice your plaid.

Check out this awesome diamond embellished Knit Regan Beanie pattern! Also a chunky knit, it would work up quickly! I love the colour choices in this example, too! Which colours would you choose?

Here’s another crocheted pattern, this Crochet Dandelion Slouch Beanie Pattern is worked up with a self-striping yarn, probably with a Caron Cake or something. So cute. I love this colour choice too!

The Toph Slouchy Beanie Hat Knitting Pattern looks almost surreal! As a relatively experienced knitter, I have no idea how I would begin to make this, so I would totally need to buy the pattern! I have about 5 or 6 patterns that I still need to make right now, so I’ll have to put this one on hold for now! Will you make it and show me?

There are so many creative ways to work colour into crocheted hats, like this Speckled Ridge Hat Crochet Pattern. I love the chunky pops of colour. And those yarn pompoms are super easy to make with a pompom maker. I love mine!

I’ve been meaning to learn this woven crochet stitch in this Crochet Hat Pattern! It looks so lovely in this hat! I want one!

Of course, not all of us have time to make it all, but you can still have a handmade Knitted hat with pompom, if you’re willing to part with a little more money! You get the finished work of a skilled craftsperson and none of the work! Sounds like a win to me! With the gift-giving season drawing ever closer, it’s time to get those orders in!

Here’s another great option for the time-crunched, the Ski Bunny Knit Hat. This one is a lovely chunky, cable-knit toque, perfect for the ski hill. How cute will you look skiing this holiday in this gorgeous beanie? 

Pick up a pattern and some yarn today and you might have a hat by tomorrow (if you’re fast)! Or pin it so you don’t forget (or share it with your sister so she can make you one… that’s what my sisters do).

Such a pretty collection of winter hat patterns to knit and crochet (even a couple you can just order if you don't knit or crochet)! #beanie #winterhat #toque #crochet #knit #patterns #yarn #crafts #craftevangelist
