This cute gingham hat knitting pattern is so cute in any set of colors, and is a fun and easy fair isle pattern to knit for your newborn, baby or toddler!
Well, the gingham hat knitting pattern has stolen my heart. I thought I fell in love with plaid when I knit up the Buffalo Plaid Hat knitting pattern. That sure is lovely, but then I decided to do a smaller scale gingham plaid hat pattern and oh boy, it’s even better!
I knit this one up in two different colorways and they both look great, all you need are white, a medium tone and a dark tone. The blue reminds me of Dorothy’s dress from the Wizard of Oz while the red makes me think of summer and picnics.
You really can’t go wrong either way. I love how the colors look like they’re overlapping, so the pattern looks tricky, but it’s actually a really easy fair isle knitting pattern. I worked on one of these at a craft night with friends so if I can knit it and talk at the same time, you know it can’t be toooo difficult, right?
I especially like how the top of this one turned out!
