This cute Buffalo Plaid hat knitting pattern is a really easy baby hat pattern to knit in any colors you want!
Is this a buffalo plaid hat? Let’s get a little bit of nomenclature out of the way… A gingham hat? A checked cap (for you Caps for Sale fans)? Just regular plaid? I don’t know. I went with buffalo plaid because it’s bigger and gingham is usually smaller, right? But I don’t know. Don’t send the plaid police after me!
No matter what you call it, this buffalo plaid knit hat is CUTE! I chose shades of pink for Baby V but you could make your buffalo plaid hat in shades of blue or yellow or green or red and it would SO cute!
I’m especially happy with how I was able to get the pattern to go all the way to the top, how cute is that? You could even add a coordinating pom pom to yours if you want! Just keep in mind that this is a fair isle pattern meaning you knit with more than one color of yarn at a time, so you will need basic fair isle knitting knowledge for this one!
(If you need help, my favorite knitting reference book for everyone from beginners to advanced knitters is THIS ONE!)
