During the winter, one of my favorite things to knit is hats. Not only can knit hats  be made in just a night or two, but they also make great gifts for family members and friends. Can I tell you a little secret? I’m kind of a sucker for quick-knit patterns , so I suppose my love affair with hats was meant to be. It’s just as well, because even though the calendar is nearing spring, no one told the Chicago weather! So, to beat that late-winter chill, I recommend that a good hat knitting session is in order! That’s where this fun selection of free knitting pattern comes in. After just a few minutes of searching, I already found a few patterns I can’t wait to cast on. I hope you enjoy looking through this little hat round up as much as I loved putting it together. And remember, if you’ve written any patterns that you’d like for AllFreeKnitting to link to, just submit a link here . We love showing off patterns from talented readers like you!
