    Weekends at the Cabin Hat


    The Weekends at the Cabin Hat is one of five patterns in the “My Forever Home” Collection, a collection of DK weight patterns inspired my home state: Montana.


    10% of pattern sale profits Nov 8 - Dec 8, 2020  will go to Montana Rescue Mission​ to help the homeless in Montana.


    Because this pattern includes two PDF files, you will receive a ZIP file that includes both documents. You will need to unzip the file to open the documents. Here are the instructions to unzip the file on your Microsoft, Mac, and iPhone or iPad device.



    Fun, simplistic, gender-neutral, and easy to wear. Weekends at the Cabin is a warm, cozy hat perfect for a weekend away in the mountains! It features crossed slipped stitches that represent the mountains and pine trees you see outside of the cabin windows.


    The Weekends at the Cabin Hat is a 2-in-1 hat pattern including the option to work a mountain motif or a tree motif. It is worked in DK weight, creating a quick and cozy knit.


    This pattern is worked bottom up. Learn more about the design inspiration, knitting experience, and wearing experience here.


    The pattern includes separate PDF files for the mountain motif and the pine tree motif. Each PDF includes both the written and the charted instructions.

    Note: This pattern was designed using a 100% wool yarn. Test knitters discovered that a heavy DK or Aran weight worked best when using a non-animal fiber.


    This design was created as a collaboration with Western Sky Knits. If you have the means, I highly recommend checking out their amazing colorway options! Find color recommendations and alternate yarn suggestions here.

    Weekends at the Cabin Hat is a great hat knitting pattern for knitters of every level who are comfortable with knitting, purling, and working in the round. New-to-you techniques within this pattern may include slipped cross stitches and decreases.


    If you are unfamiliar with slipped cross stitches, they are a simplistic cable - and in my tutorials I even show you how to work them without a cable needle!


    All of my patterns include clear, step-by-step instructions and linked video technique tutorials that walk you through the pattern with confidence. I am also available for pattern support if you have questions.



    I would like to extend a huge thank you to all of my test knitters and my tech editor for this pattern, Jekaterina Dmitrijeva.
