Free Drop Stitch Hat Pattern

Simple Drop Stitch Hat Pattern 

  • Using the Yellow Knifty Knitter Circle loom (41 pegs) and two strands of worsted weight (4) yarn. (Coral was used in picture)
  • Cast On with E-Wrap method
  • Row 1: Purl
  • Row 2: Knit
  • Rows 3 thru 10: Double Stitch or Tight Stitch (click here for video)
  • Rows 12 thru 14: Drop Stitch, only one re-wrap peg once before moving on  
  • Rows 15 thru 17: Knit (I used the e-wrap method)
  • Rows 18 thru 23: Drop Stitch only one re-wrap of peg again
  • Rows 24 thru 26: Knit (I used e-wrap method)
  • Cast Off: Gather bind off (what is used typically for hats) 
* The "brim" does curl some but you can smooth it down a little or choose to do a different brim. I kept this very simple but, to me, it looks much better in person for a spring/fall type hat.
