Donna’s Dozen: Hats Off to You

Hats, hats and more hats. We have so many hats we don’t know what to do! Well I know what to do, I’m sharing with you!

I went through our listing of hats and picked a wide variety for you to make the perfect project for yourself or as a gift. This list consist of hats for men, women and unisex in so many styles. I hope you enjoy these designs and can find one that will fit your dynamic personality and keep you warm at the same time.

For the Lovely Ladies

LW4540 City Sophisticate HatI just love a hat with so many possibilities. This one has warmth, beauty and a little sparkle. It is perfect for the city sophisticate or a country girl.




LW4273 Shaded Mitered Hat
Do you like to knit mitered squares? Turn your mitered passion into a comfy nicely shaded masterpiece.




LW2866 Three Tone Hat


I made this Three Tone Hat a few years ago for a gift and just loved the pattern. It worked up quickly and had a fun and funky look. I changed the colors for my project, but you could also use just one color.







If you have not tried out Red Heart Grande yarn, you are missing out! This is a lightly shaded super bulky yarn that looks and feels like a cloud. This charming hat is one of my favorites with the fun pompom.




LW2846 Comfy Earflap Hat

If you want to dress up an earflap hat you will want to do it with Boutique Unforgettable. There are so many amazing colors in this line to make your project look like a million bucks.



LW3846 Berries Blast Beanie


The Berries Blast Beanie will be perfect this Winter and you will look smashing while shoveling all that snow. I just love Red Heart Medley and the delightful range of colors. There is not a color that I don’t like.



The Marvelous Men

LW4384 All About the HatIt is all about the hat, isn’t it? This knit hat is perfect for your special guy. It is simple, soft and he will just love wearing it when there is a chill in the air.





Here we have a hat that would be good for a man, woman or teen. Keep the stripes or go with a solid for a quicker result.



LW4040 Night Shine Hat


Light up your hat with a flash! Red Heart Reflective reflects with a simple flash of light. I think this is such a terrific, fun idea. Your guy will look so handsome in this knit striped hat.


LW2518 Streetwise Brim Hat

Crochet this brim hat to keep him warm and it has more of a baseball cap look for those that do not like the typical hat.





LW2925 Team Pride Hat


Red Heart Team Spirit is a perfect yarn for the sports lover in your home. This knit hat would look good on any of the guys in your life. It’s a gift that can be given any time of the year because they are usually passionate about their team every day!


LW3731 T(hat's) Cool Hat





Here is another charming crochet hat that would look nice on a guy or girl. You could even have a matching set if you like. Change up the colors for an original touch.

I hope you have enjoyed checking out this group of hats. Visit to find many more. There is a hat for almost every personality, age and gender. Going through and creating this list has inspired me to make a bunch of these hats in different color ways and get them ready for gifts for friends and charities.

      Thanks for the knit patterns. I make lots of different hats and give away most to churches, schools and the homeless shelter.

    I would like a bulky crochet hat pattern. One that looks like a braided stitch within the pattern.

      Hi Bev, We’re sorry to hear you’re having trouble! What part is not working? The links in the blog post? Or the PDF downloads from the pattern pages? You’re welcome to contact Customer Service at and they will be able to get you copies of any of our patterns.

    There are at least four hats I want to make although one is knitted and I would need to learn how to do that first. Even so, thanks for the great free patterns.

  4. Kathy Berlinghieri

    I love your patterns, & so many of the yarns are beautiful! My only request is that you include the yarn weight (bulky,worsted, baby, etc) with the yarn descriptions, as sometimes I want a bulky, & other times regular worsted!

    Nice variety of hats. Some easy and some more advanced

  6. A Ruth Goodwin

    Love the hat patterns….Winter is not over and will make a few more of these…

    My sister was a master knitter and I have inherited some of her U.F.O.s. This last vest is beautiful, but there was no pattern left. I think it came from a pattern book from Bernat from the 1970s. Any idea how I can find such an item??? Thank you. Love your patterns and yarn. My mother crocheted many hats in her very later years–until she was 100. I had to learn to crochet so I could help her when she couldn’t remember how to start.

    • redheart Post author

      Hi Frederica, Thanks for your question! We suggest contacting the publisher of the pattern book, in this case Bernat, to see if they did indeed have a book of patterns that they can help you get. Unfortunately we are unable to assist in finding patterns from other publishers or yarn companies.

    Looking forward to getting started on these hats. Many thanks.

    could not find the changes for medium/large sizes for comfy earflap hat.could not find the parentheses.

    • redheart Post author

      Hi Teresa, Thanks for your question! The first several rounds of the hat are the same in all sizes. If you look on Round 10, you’ll notice that the parentheses with the changes for each round start to appear.

      For additional assistance, please contact Customer Service at or (800) 648-1479.

    I was disappointed that you did not give number of rows for the stripes in the Team Spirit hat. I am knitting for charity and sometimes need to use stripes to have enough yarn for the project so that would have been really helpful.
