Sleepytime Hat Knitting Pattern

knitting patternI’m excited to share my first knitting pattern! This is a cozy, worsted weight hat knitted nice and long like an old sleeping cap. I’ve written the pattern to include the stripes but you could easily modify it to be a solid hat. You could even switch up the width of the stripes! Another way to add some variation would be to use two strands of Fingering weight yarn held together instead, or even a single strand of Aran weight yarn. Experiment! Have fun!
