Looking for a quick warm winter hat this year? Our free knitted hat pattern Tombreck is a little gift to you! It's perfectly simple and makes a great beginner knitting project, or is an easy and gentle knit for more experienced knitters. And it looks amazing on everyone!
This chevron patterned beanie is stylish, unisex and the ideal one-skein gift project. Perfect for new knitters this easy hat pattern uses only knits and purls to create the fun textured chevrons. You'll also practise knitting in the round and decreasing with k2tog to shape the crown of the hat.
