Intermediate Knitting Pattern
As mentioned, the pattern is relatively easy to put together and only requires an intermediate knowledge of knitting. I love the outdoors, and cold weather has never hampered my enthusiasm for outdoor activities with my kids.
With this knit stocking hat pattern, the fun continues straight into winter and beyond. Don’t let the cold dampen the mood in your home. Knit up a couple of these hats and feel free to personalize each knit stocking hat pattern to suit the taste of each member of your family.
There’s a lot of things you could do in winter other than wrapping yourself up in a warm shoal in front of an open fire sipping hot cocoa. Well, it sure does sound nice, but after a while, you’re going to get bored.
I can’t think of any winter activities that don’t go well with the knit stocking hat pattern, well maybe bob sleighing. That’s a whole other issue I’m not too keen on trying. My fear of bobsleighs aside, stocking hats are as unique as warm, trendy accessories come.
All Your Friends Will Be Asking You About your Knit Stocking Hat
I have had a few of my friends ask me where I got my hats and the response is always the same, I made them myself. Sure you can find a few of these hats on several online listings, but the feeling isn’t the same. I’m all in for putting love and effort into a project other than just buying a finished item.
So how badly do you want to stay warm and stylish?
