Building Blocks - Hats
Three hats in one pattern!
Designed by Courtney Kelley, this Building Blocks pattern is one of the only hat patterns you’ll ever need! This pattern is a little more word-heavy and breaks down some of the intermediate-level techniques in order to make the knitting easy and enjoyable. The hope is that you not only learn something along the way, you end up with a fabulous hat - or hats - as well!
This pattern uses Germantown yarn.
