Marley Chunky Hat - Knitting Pattern

This post includes affiliate links - Please see my Privacy Policy for more info.

Hello friends! So I know its August and you may be wondering why on earth am i posting a knit hat pattern and to be honest i am probably wondering the same but i am a lover of chunky yarn, winter warmers and everything cosy so i thought why not :) 



The yarn i used for this pattern is Hayfield Bonus Chunky Yarn in colour 'starling' and i have to be honest it is one of  my most favouritist (is that even a word?!) yarns to use, its soft to touch and it also has a good range of colours, i just love the flecked bits of yarn in this yarn ball which consits of browns, greens and navy, perfect for winter, right?! Plus this is a very easy pattern to follow and even if you are a newbie to knitting this is perfect for you and on the plus side you will have it in time for winter or gift it for Christmas!

Have i convinced you that we should all start following winter patterns yet? Hehe!!

Hope you enjoy this weeks free knitting pattern and come and follow Wool and Stitch on Instagram to be kept up to date with latest designs @wool_and_stitch

Cut yarn leaving a long tail and thread through remaining stitches, pull tight to close hat up and weave in ends.

Move on to pom pom.


Pom Pom:


> I used a pom pom maker in size large to achieve the full fluffy pom pom on top of the hat which you can find here


> There are other ways to make a pom pom either by wrapping yarn around your hand or wrapping yarn around a fork but personally i don’t find this makes the pom pom so full and fluffy (you can pinterest these options to try them out)


Attach pom pom to hat securely.
