This pretty tumbling blocks hat knitting pattern is inspired by quilt blocks and it’s SO pretty, perfect for your newborn, baby or toddler!
I think my new tumbling blocks hat knitting pattern might possible be my favorite fair isle pattern yet. I just love how this one turned out. It’s inspired by the classic tumbling blocks pattern, although I separated the rows a little bit between the blocks. To me I can almost see abstract flowers and I just love it in pink and raspberry.
In fact, I really can’t get enough of this raspberry color right now. It always makes me think of the raspberry Mr. Sketch marker which was one of my favorites. Actually who am I kidding, all the Mr. Sketch markers are my favorites…except licorice. No one likes that one.
But anyway, to get back to the point, this pretty fair isle knitting pattern is a gorgeous and easy knit and the hat turns out beautifully. You should definitely go make one!
This pattern contains two charts, one with 3 rows of tumbling blocks for the two largest sizes and a separate chart with 2 rows of tumbling blocks for the two smallest sizes. That way you don’t have to figure out how to change it on your own!
I love this pattern because it’s easy enough that you won’t be easily confused but yet it still LOOKS complicated and beautiful. That makes it a fun one to knit as you see the pretty pattern emerge! I’m pretty sure Baby V likes it too!
