About this Pattern

If you’re looking for an easy hat to knit that doesn’t look easy, this is the pattern for you! The Double Moss Stitch Knit Hat here at B.Hooked combines some of our favorite yarn with one of our favorite “easy stitches that don’t look easy” to help you build even more confidence with knitting hats.

With this project you’ll practice your knits and purls in a way that creates a swirling design; a look that’s great for other projects too. Not just hats. You’ll also have the opportunity to learn or practice decreasing to shape the crown, an essential skill set for any knitter.

Before you begin, review this page entirely so you understand the full scope of the project before you begin. To help you succeed, we prepared a list of recommended supplies and abbreviations as well as a video tutorial and written instructions to walk you through the Double Moss Stitch Hat from start to finish.
