Hat Knitting Patterns
Nothing completes an outfit better than a good hat. Hats have been worn for a very long time and it is probably the case that the first examples were made by primitive humans, who used animal skins to protect their heads. One of the very first pictures of a hat comes from an Ancient Egyptian cave painting and depicts a piece of headwear made from straw.
In recent years, hats knitted from wool and yarn have become the most popular on offer. Both stylish and practical, knitted hats come in a range of colours and styles which make them great statement pieces. They can also be considered as practical garments for keeping heads and ears warm.
The first knitted caps were manufactured in the 12th century when they were typically made from satin or velvet. Since then, they have become extremely versatile and manufacturers have branched out into many different styles, including berets, beanies and bonnets, to accommodate all tastes and needs.
Hat knitting patterns are amongst the most popular designs sold, simply because hats are so functional and eminently fashionable. Knitting patterns allow anyone to make their own hats, either for their own use or as great presents. Hand–knitted hats, created using hat knitting patterns, make the perfect gifts for Christmas and are always well-received.
Knitting patterns are perfect for those who love to make accessories. What’s more, there are more than enough knitting patterns to ensure it is possible to make a piece of headwear for every occasion.
From warming baby hats, decorated with bobbles and ribbons, to simple beanies for trendy teenagers, there are few limits to what can be achieved with great designs. Here at Black Sheep Wools, we have a great selection of hat knitting patterns for our customers to get stuck in to.
