Every flying ace needs his knit aviator hat pattern to stay warm in the freezing headwinds. I embarked on this knit aviator hat pattern to let the boys know that mommy loves them. And that I have their back in any dogfight they get into.
Knit Aviator Hat Pattern
I love playing with my little boys. They have such energy and an imagination to match. One minute we’re shooting down Japanese Zeros off the coast of Pearl Harbour, the next we’re flying in formation in Wild Weasels into Nam.
Took me a while to keep up with the energy and surprisingly accurate historical facts. Boys love planes and to the best of my belief planes love boys.
I had to put in hours watching the history channel and learning a few fighter plane names. Anything to keep your young ones happy.
Aviator Hat Materials

6 Aviator Hat Knitting Sizes
The finished knit aviator hat pattern is available in 6 distinct sizes that range from a newborn to 3-month old baby, 3 to 6 months, 6 to 12 months, 1 to 2-year-olds, toddlers (2T to 4T) and children aged five years and above.
To effectively take on this project you need to be an intermediate knitter capable of knit, purl, increase and decrease techniques.
Button Up Chin Flap Optional
The knit aviator hat pattern can be made to fasten under the chin with a button. This prevents the tiny toddler from pulling it off every two seconds while keeping their little heads snug and warm.
If the aviator hat is meant for an older child, you might want to keep the earflaps hanging freely, no need for buttons.
Experiment with different colors, and shades of brown till you get it right.
