Fiesta Hat Tutorial

It’s time for another Polka Dot Download! I’ve been wanting to write this one up for ages and I finally sat down and did it.

Fiesta Hats are great one-night projects, featuring bright colors and simple techniques. I’ve written instructions for both loom knitters and needle knitters, so you can make these hats no matter which method you prefer.  The majority of the ones I’ve made have been done on the loom, but I have also made a few on circular needles, and both methods are fairly simple.

These hats would make great Christmas gifts.  They feature quality materials, and they work up quickly – make a small pile of them and give them to your closest girlfriends.

You can use the link below to purchase the tutorial at any time.

Or, wander over to the downloads page where for a limited time, it will be Freebie of the Month. If it is FotM, then go ahead and download it there for free.  Enjoy!

These hats were made to sport a Polka Dot Cottage buttonLiterally made for it.  You can substitute any large button you like, of course, but if you want a button like in the photos, you’ll find a wide selection here.

If you’re not a knitter, and have no interest in becoming one, you can still snag a Fiesta Hat for yourself or someone you love here.
