Simon Says

Simon Says you need to knit this hat!


Simon Says collage 600



This ribbed hat is a very simple, quick knit. The k2p2 ribbing runs from top to bottom. You can’t get much more simple than that! You can knit it all in one color, knit stripes, knit the body in one color and the crown in another color… your imagination is your only limit. Put a pom pom on top if you’d like!



One pattern for the whole family! Written for sizes from premie through adult. Choose from beanie or toque. Something for everyone!



Simon Says is perfect for children because it will fit for a long time! The k2p2 ribbing throughout gives this hat the ability to cinch in for a snug fit and to also stretch willingly for long wear. It is worked in the round from the brim to the crown.

One thought on “Simon Says

  1. I knit a lot of hats. They are small enough to hold my attention, are appreciated as gifts, rarely have seams, and allow you to try different techniques out without a lot of time investment.

    Love them..
