Free MillaMia Hat Knitting Pattern

August 10, 2014

This cute hat pattern from MillaMia is perfect for a beginner who wants to try colourwork for the first time in their knitting. Knit in garter stitch with a choice of three motifs for the brim of the hat you can either knit using the Intarsia method or like the girls at MillaMia use the Swiss Darning method which will help to really make the motif stand out.

Smilla Hat is knit in MillaMia Naturally Soft Merino, a sportweight yarn that is spun from 100% Merino wool. Naturally Soft Merino is machine washable at 30 so is ideal if your knitting for babies or children. It is incredibly soft and bouncy with a rounded construction, so the stitch definition is just lovely. Currently Naturally Soft Merino is available in 20 colours with two limited edition colours, Cobalt Blue and Lime; although stocks are these are now running low.

Simply click on the image below to download your free copy of MillaMia’s Smilla Hat. The pattern gives instructions for knitting in three sizes; 0-3 months, 6-24 months and 24-48 months. It requires very little yarn and you will have enough left to knit a further hat in reverse colours! You will also need 3.25mm knitting needles to complete your project.

 

Elephant Hat
• 1(2:2) 50g/1 ¾ oz ball(s) of MillaMia Naturally Soft Merino in Snow (124) (M).
• Small amount of Seaside (161) (C).

Kisses XOX Hat
• 1(2:2) 50g/1 ¾ oz ball(s) of MillaMia Naturally Soft Merino in Snow (124) (M).
• Small amount of Scarlet (140) (C).

Heart Hat
• 1(2:2) 50g/1 ¾ oz ball(s) of MillaMia Naturally Soft Merino in Snow (124) (M).
• Small amount of Fuchsia (143) (C).


For Swiss Darning you will need a blunt darning needle. Thread your needle with your chosen colour of MillaMia Naturally Soft Merino and following the chart in the pattern bring your needle up through from the back at the base of the stitch to be worked and draw the yarn through, remember to leave enough yarn at the back for weaving in later; take your needle behind the 2 loops of the stitch above from the right to left (fig 2) and draw the yarn through, insert needle into same place as before and bring through at base of next stitch to be covered (fig 2), draw yarn through to the tension of main knitting. Continue in this way until entire motif is embroidered.
