I’ve seen swirl hat patterns floating around the internet before but I’ve never knit one before, turns out it’s actually really easy! This adorable rainbow swirl hat is knit mostly flat and then sewn together to make the twisting swirly stripes. It’s kind of magic the way it works out in the end.

But if you find it’s not fitting, please do let me know! Even when I test and re-test patterns I can’t always account for how things will work out in the real world on other people’s needles, you know what I mean? But I’m happy to hear (polite) feedback anytime! The Rainbow Swirl Hat knitting pattern is super fun to knit and looks so cute on babies and toddlers!
