This adorable duplicate stitch I Heart You hat knitting pattern is a classic and this cute and easy hat pattern is available in newborn to adult sizes!
I really love this new I heart you hat knitting pattern. Or is it an I love you hat knitting pattern? This one is knit in the round and then the design is added in duplicate stitch. If you are new to duplicate stitch, you have to try it. It really is perfect for a hat knitting project like this because you can perfectly position the design on the finished hat.
It’s also great because it makes the actual knitting part speed by and you don’t need to use any colorwork or Fair Isle knitting techniques. And while those are awesome, they do slow most people down.
I’ve also been on an embroidery kick and duplicate stitch in knitting, like in this I heart you hat, is really a lot like embroidery, you’re just recreating the knit stitches in a new color of yarn with a yarn needle.
If you’d like to learn more, don’t fret, I have an entire how to do duplicate stitch in knitting tutorial and it will help you knit your I love you hat knitting pattern!
As I mentioned, the I heart you hat pattern is knit in the round with worsted weight yarn and includes instructions to complete this knitting projects in six sizes from newborn to adult. If you’d like more information or want to take a look at our sizing guide, it may help you choose which size to knit.
And while I knit this cute hat in black and red on white, you could knit this in all kinds of color combinations and it would look great! Just make sure there’s enough contrast in color between the duplicate stitches and the background color so you can read it easily (and I recommend no speckled yarn).
