Designed by Kate Atherley, the Warm and Easy Hat is an ideal project for beginners to practice their knit stitches and working in the round. The beanie is a wardrobe staple and ideal for a first knitting project! This small project is relatively quick to knit and perfect for learning to knit in the round, work ribbing and get decreases down. With clear illustrated instructions and a full range of tutorials, the Warm and Easy Hat will help guide newbie knitters to build confidence and skills. It is also a lovely option for more experienced knitters who appreciate clean, minimalist design, and relaxing knitting with beautiful, affordable yarns. This kit is for a colourblock version of the hat in the &Make Aran yarn. Kits are also available for colourblock versions of the &Make DK Warm and Easy Hatย and &Make Super Bulky Warm and Easy Hat.

The Warm and Easy Hat is worked in the round, from the brim up to the crown. You will begin by casting on the contrast colour and then working the brim with knit 1, purl 1 ribbing in that colour. When the brim is finished, change your knitting yarn to your main colour working the body of the hat in Stockinette Stitch โ€” knitting every round. When the body is finished, you will work decreases in the crown until just a few stitches are left. Secure the stitches, weave in the ends, block your hat, and voila! Your first hat is ready to wear!

Kit contains:

Colours:

The photos show the main colour in the grey shade Silver Screen. The contrast colour is shown in the green shade Borealis Bash.

Choose your &Make Aran hat main colour from the first set of colours and the contrast colour from the second set of colours.

Sizes and measurements:

The kit includes enough yarn to make the following sizes:

&Make Aran – Sizes 1 (2, 3, 4, 5, 6) with finished measurements:
Circumference: 36 (40, 47, 51, 56, 60) cm / 14 (16, 18.5, 20.5, 22, 24) inches

To choose your size, take your actual head circumference measurement and subtract 0 to 5 cm (0 to 2 inches) for โ€˜negative easeโ€™, and to make the hat fit comfortably.
