What’s better than a free hat pattern? 12 free hat patterns, of course! The Year of Bulky Hats celebrates our Germantown Bulky yarn with 12 free knitting patterns for fun hats using our favorite knitting techniques. The February Fernhill hat is the *original* February Hat you know and love, but somehow even squishier! This hat begins with a provisional cast on, then a brim is worked in a K1, P1 Ribbing. After the brim is complete, the body and crown of the hat are worked in a texture stripe pattern from charts. The textured stitches look great in Germantown Bulky, and the patterns are repetitive and easy to memorize. A pom pom and custom leather tag complete the look.

Useful Tips

Our preferred method of the provisional cast on is the crochet provisional cast-on. A full tutorial can be found here.

This cast on uses the same steps as the October Hat cast on (save for rearranging the stitches). Find a video tutorial on working the cast on here.
