Best Knit Hat Patterns for Women this Fall: As I often do before sleeping, yesterday eve, I went browsing online and landed at Craftsy and in my blog archives. I did a round-up of pretty hats that are really unique: noteworthy, knit-able, have-able, and share-able with you here today. Most are free patterns, as well, I’m sure you don’t mind paying once in a while for a hat pattern, but it’s nice if you can find a freebie or two as well.

Easy Knit Hat
A favavorite hats, this neutral tri-color beanie is a classic. So many colors could be spun together to make other combinations. It’s such fun to see these quick makes come together. Knit in the round.
Tha Nami Beanie
A slouchy hat with some cabling on the site. Simple enough for a beginners hat.
By Kristie Lau
Wowow. There is a lot going on here. Still only moderately more challenging vs. a beginner pattern, this foliage hat is a stunning result. I would take my best yarn out to make this, as it’ll be a heirloom thereafter. Or, a great gift for a BFF.
Free Fair Isle Hat Pattern
I featured this pattern a while ago and still like so much about it: I like the thought of the his & hers- coloring; I like the fair isle pattern which makes this into an intermediate level knitting pattern. And I like the fact that it’s a free knitting pattern. The edging is very nice as well.

Hudson Riverfront Hat
This is one of those hats that looks so involved but that is actually super simple. Yes, really. It’s the yarn that makes it so special. Usually, Lionbrand’s patterns are rather mainstream. But this one is a real trendy head-turner. And I promise, it will be warm. Makes great gift.
As Lionbrand took down its entire library of prior patterns – much to my chargin!!! – I am posting my own copy of this pattern here to share with you: Hudson river hat pattern.
Happy K Hat
This looks like a cable hat, but it’s more like a blue spur forest hat. Great color, interesting stitch work. Not too difficult, and yes, free pattern again.
Pretty Beanie ‘Schuyler’
This beauty is designed by Jennifer Burke for Manos del Uruguay, a yarn brand that I absolutely adore, and just spent $100+ on for the materials for a long coat. Anyhow, stick to the knitting… lol.. We’re talking about a stunning hat here, with a lovely motif that’s repeated throughout, so that’s interesting but not too outlandishly complicated.
