Free Hat Patterns - over 60 designs!
And one of the fleece designs may make an especially good first sewing project
because fleece doesn't fray.

And as you can see from a few of these designs, making a knit cap can be a great
way to recycle an old sweater (especially those colorful sweaters from the 80's we
don't quite know what to do with!). And as long as the knit is fairly tight, you can
sew it just as you would any knit fabric.

And since many of these designs are made with knit fabrics, here are a couple of
tips for working with knits:

Use a special “stretch stitch” (or a tiny zigzag stitch) when sewing your knit fabric
so that the seams in your finished hat will stretch properly when the hat is worn.
And use a
ballpoint needle in your sewing machine (instead of a standard needle)
which will slide between the fibers of your knit fabric instead of piercing them.
Sew hats and caps with this collection of over sixty free hat and head wear sewing
patterns & tutorials gathered from all over the web. And since most sewn hats are
constructed from pretty basic shapes, they can be fairly quick to make and can
make a great first project for a beginner just learning how to sew.
