Swans Island Bulky Hats for the Whole Family Free Knitting Pattern

Free Knitting Pattern Swans Island Bulky Hats

Last year's worsted weight version of this pattern was so popular that we just HAD to do a chunky weight version! Not to mention we had tons of customer requests for a warmer version as well. So, we grabbed some more of our trusty Swans Island yarn, this time in Natural Colors Bulky, and set out to make these hats a bit warmer for you. One skein of the yarn will make one hat, but to achieve the striped patterns we have shown here, you'll want at least two skeins. Luckily, two skeins will make two adult hats or three smaller hats depending on the sizes you need. These easy hats are knit in the round and use only the most basic stitches making this a great beginner or first hat project. When paired with a gorgeous yarn such as Swans Island, the result is a classically beautiful heirloom item that will be treasured for years to come. We hope this pattern finds you in time for all of your winter knitting, as this pattern covers all sizes from Newborn to X-Large adult and will work for everyone in the family. Happy knitting!

Materials

Finished Measurements:
  • 12"- Newborn (0-6 Months), to fit head sizes 13-15"
  • 14"- Baby (6-12 Months), to fit head sizes 15-17"
  • 16"- Toddler (12-24 Months), to fit head sizes 17-18"
  • 18"- Kids, to fit head size 19"
  • 19"- XS Adult, to fit head size 20"
  • 20"- S Adult, to fit head size 21"
  • 21"- M Adult, to fit head size 22"
  • 22"- L Adult, to fit head size 23"
  • 23"- XL Adult, to fit head size 24"

*Note on size: Measuring the head of the person you are knitting this for is highly recommended. In cases where you can't measure the head, measure another hat that fits, or have someone take a measurement for you if possible. Kids grow at different rates, so these general sizes may not work perfectly for everyone. If you are unsure of a size, you can fudge it a little by knitting a slightly larger size in a rib pattern throughout and make it slightly longer than you think you need. The recipient can wear it folded up for a while and the ribbing will allow it to form to the head size better and grow with them over time if they are still growing.

Gauge:
  • 16 sts & 24 rnds = 4" in Stockinette Stitch
