Night Coffee Hat


February nights are really cold, so wearing hats is a must. This month's theme is hats; right now I'm interested in designing knitted head-wear, like beanies or slouchies. For my first hat design, I'm using the seersucker pattern. It's very simple to knit and has a nice baklava pattern, plus, knitting this hat only takes a couple of hours to finish. I made one for my husband and he loved it, and I hope you will like it too!

  1. Hi there - Love this hat. I am looking at the Seersucker Pattern section. I believe that Row 6 should read "Repeat Row 5" rather than Row 4. Is that correct?
    Happy Knitting.
