The spiral beanie is a beginner friendly and quick to work up patter. This pattern uses bulky wool blend yarn making the hat warm and fast to knit.
This hat pattern is slightly slouchy and is extra stretchy due to the stitch pattern which is great if you like a looser fitting hat. The spiral knit hat is fun to work up and looks good in any colour. Try mixing it up and making the brim of the hat a different colour than the body of the hat.
