Thanks to a fresh new palette of Worsted Twist colors, our Basic Hats For Everyone are back in a whole new world of velvet blues and teacake pinks. Like a hydrangea forest, we love the vibe!

And no pattern is better suited for color play than our Basic Hats For Everyone. A real classic, it includes instructions for four different brims, plus sizes from baby to grandpa.

And one more choice: to pom pom or not to pom pom. Ours are so squishy cute it’s hard to say no. Worsted Twist adds fluffy softness, and our Pom Pom Maker Set churns out perfectly dense sweeties every time!

The perfect marriage of simplicity, flexibility, and fun, this is the kind of pattern we turn to at every gift-giving opportunity. In the old days, we’d say that it was our most dog-eared pattern, but now, let’s just say it has a special place on our desktop!
