While here in Florida we don’t need hats as many months of the year, I still love them. And a homemade hat with stunning yarn is perfection. There is just something comfortable and unique about wearing a custom piece with each stitch knit with intention. I hope you enjoy this Quilted Lattice Knit Hat as much as I do.

I love working up a quick knit hat in a chunky yarn that has a beautiful yet simplistic texture. This is one to enjoy all fall and well into the winter months. The repeats are done in multiples of 6+3, so sizing up or down for the novice knitter is not complicated. I hope you enjoy this freebie.
-This hat is worked in the round to the desired length starting at the brim. The stitch in this pattern was inspired by Barbara Walker and her wonderful Treasury of Knitting Pattern book.
