Bankhead Hat

I finally got around to making the Bankhead Hat by Susie Gourlay. I originally found this hat while doing some research for a coworker. She wanted to make a basic-ish beanie that was gender neutral.

The Bankhead Hat is a great project for beginners. The pattern is well written and has a lot of photos to guide you along. Along with being free, Bankhead can be created with pretty much any yarn. I used a solid color, however, Bankhead would look lovely in striped or with variegated yarn.

I am not quite sure if I worked the crown decreases correctly. If I did then I really like the finished look. If not… I still like it (hahaha).

What is your favorite basic-ish hat/beanie pattern?

Until Next Time,

  1. I think this is my new favorite hat pattern. I’ve made some intricate color work hats that were too tight, some quasi-cable knit hats that were too loose, And all I really need is a basic but had pattern. So I’m definitely going to try This for gifts next. I like the crown of the hat too.
