    I am new to knitting hats (touques) and love this pattern and design- nice and easy for beginners like me. I have lots of yarn that I can use for it

    Rather than doing a crochet border could you just do a garter stitch for about an inch then continue with the stockinette for 8 inches before beginning the crown?

    My first ever hat turned out great, I love this pattern! 🙂 One last question now… Can this pattern be converted from a single strand of weight 5 yarn to three weight 4 strands of yarn knitted together? I want to make a matching chunky scarf and hat set as a gift and I cannot for the life of me find orange camo yarn…

      Hi Lynda! How cool! So glad your hat turned out great. Please post a pic on Instagram and tag me so I can see it! @mbm_madebymarni
      #simplechunkyknithat 🙂 To answer your question you can change the yarn, but I would make a swatch to check the gauge and do any math needed to get the right size. If you know how many stitches to an inch then you can cast on the right amount to start the hat. And just begin the crown when you get to the 8-inch mark, or however long you want it to be before you start the crown. Hope this helps! Marni

        It does thanks! I found the 8″ was perfect as the hat comes down to the nape of the neck that way and without the knitted or crocheted border, it can be folded up to double the thickness of the brim and create extra warmth around the forehead and ears. This evening I will get to the swatch and see what it does. 🙂

    Hello, I am new to knitting but would love to try this one. I am doing this for a boy and was wondering if I decide to do a border with 2k2p do I still cast on the same number of stitches. Thanks much!

    • marni says:

      The border is added at the end, so yes, as long as you pick up an even number of stitches you should be able to do a k2, p2 border. Please share a pic!

    Brilliant pattern thankyou. Have made lots of hats for Christmas presents, and they are being worn which is even better! So simple and quick to make and looks great as chunky wool.
