Cold ears and frosty wind in your hair - that really doesn't have to be the case. With a cosy, warm beanie you can effectively protect your head from the cold. You can also enhance the look of your outfit with a stylish beanie. You can choose from a wide range of hats, and you can even knit the knitted models yourself. At Crazypatterns you'll find numerous knitting patterns for men's hats that will keep you warm and fashionable through the cold season.
On cold spring or autumn days, as well as in winter, a warm hat is perfect for keeping your head warm, including your forehead and ears. How about a beautiful knitted men's hat for yourself or for your husband, father or grandfather as a gift. Every man can use a warm hat, preferably several for different outfits and activities. Crazypatterns has lots of easy knitting patterns for men's hats, with which you can knit the popular Norwegian hats, but also simple beanies and classic knitted hats.
The best thing is: depending on the thickness of the material, they can be worn not only in winter. They also serve as a beautiful accessory during the rest of the year that can add a fashionable accent. Beginners especially love knitting patterns for men's hats, as they are much easier and quicker to make compared to more elaborate knitwear such as jumpers or cardigans. Caps require relatively little yarn and you don't need complicated knitting patterns to get started. They are also knitted in one piece, so you don't have to join different pieces together. Use our knitting patterns for men's hats to easily knit yourself a few of these warm accessories. Step by step, you'll learn how to knit and which materials to use.
Self-knitted headgear is not only suitable for men of all ages, even little men would like to have a few of the soft and comfortable pieces in their wardrobe for the winter. From the light spring hat and somewhat thicker autumn hat to the warm pom-pom hat, there is guaranteed to be something suitable for everyone. In terms of style, men's caps are no different from women's caps. There are classic, practical caps, but also elegant headgear as well as extravagant designs that can be worn for a wide variety of occasions at work and in your free time. Whether plain, colourful, with a pom-pom or an interesting pattern - give free rein to your creativity when knitting men's caps.
Knitting your own hats is not only good for your wallet. In addition to saving money, you can also create very individual pieces that no other man wears and stand out fashionably from the standard caps. Look bold with unusual knitted caps or more casual with sporty cap styles. Either way, you'll enrich your wardrobe with new knitwear that you can put to good use in everyday life.
Whether as fashionable accessories to your outfit or as practical accessories to keep you warm - you can never have enough hats. Simply knit the most beautiful pieces yourself using our patterns for knitting men's hats. Another advantage is that you can use exactly the yarns you find most comfortable on your head. One person may prefer a thin hat so as not to sweat so quickly. For others, it can't be warm enough on the head, so they go for the thickest yarns.
Are you still new to knitting? Then it's best not to overtax yourself right away with a demanding jumper that has to be painstakingly put together from several large pieces. With small knits like the hat, it's much easier to get started and you won't lose patience so quickly if you don't get it right the first time.
A simple hat can be made very quickly with circular needles. If you are a little more experienced, Crazypatterns also offers more demanding knitting patterns for men's hats. So that beginners don't give up too quickly, our knitting patterns for men's hats are usually marked with the degree of difficulty. Choose the easiest possible patterns for knitting men's hats and then increase the level step by step as you become more confident with the knitting needle.
For more complicated models, there are of course also suitable knitting patterns for men's hats that you can try with more experience.
These hats are suitable for beginners:
Very simple and classic are plain caps, for example in black, grey or blue - for brave men also in all other colours. You can start with a simple men's hat without much know-how, because it is knitted with right and left stitches and with a simple decrease. Choose a timeless colour that you can wear with any outfit. The coloured versions can be combined with a scarf or gloves in the same colour.
Very popular with young, fashion-conscious men is the so-called boyfriend cap, which is worn casually on the head. With this model, the focus is less on the warming effect and much more on the use of a cool accessory. This cap is perfect for young and young-at-heart men, but can also be worn by teenagers and kids. Boyfriend-look caps look particularly interesting when they are knitted with a basket pattern and a soft merino wool.
The bobble hat is a highlight not only for children, and everyone knows it well from their own childhood. It is knitted like a classic hat. One or more pom-poms in different sizes are added. The bobble can be sewn directly onto the cap and gives the men's cap a lovely touch. You can design the pom poms in the same colour as the hat or choose a contrasting colour.
Another cool variation is the men's cap, which is upgraded with a patch. To do this, knit your cap in the classic way and then sew a patch of your choice onto the front, side or back of the cap. You can choose between large and small patches, for example lettering, logos or funny motifs. It is important that the patches are very flexible and easy to sew onto the cap. Pay attention to the washing patterns when using a patch.
A few right and purl stitches - that's all it takes to make a cool beanie hat. The beanie hat is a good choice for beginners because it is very quick and easy to make. You can also knit old wool scraps, for example, as only a little yarn is needed.
Have you had enough of simple caps in your wardrobe and are you looking for new challenges? Then why not try the knitting patterns for men's hats, which are a little more difficult to make? Instead of simple knitting patterns and techniques, these are a little more challenging.
These caps are suitable for advanced knitters:
You knit them like the classic hats, but use different colours. You decide the width of the coloured stripes yourself. Add small colour accents or use different dark colours to give the hat design more structure.
Do you love the typical Norwegian jumper? Then a hat in the same style would be the perfect match. Alternatively, you can also use any other pattern in your hat. Let your imagination run wild and decide according to your taste.
Tip: You can find brand new ideas for knitting men's hats in the "Novelties" section of Crazypatterns, where knitting enthusiasts post their latest creations.
A reversible beanie is absolutely cosy and visually very interesting. It offers you two designs in one cap. Ideal if you couldn't decide on one colour. It is knitted from two layers that consist of different colours, for example. An airy version of the reversible cap is created by using a casual hole pattern. This makes the contrasting colour visible from the outside, no matter which side you are wearing the reversible cap on. The perforated pattern also helps to prevent your head from sweating as quickly as with an extra-thick knitted cap.
You can also personalise caps with inscriptions, for example with a name, a short saying or initials. These caps are ideal for giving as gifts, for example, if you want to give your loved ones a personalised treat.
To knit men's hats you need different materials depending on the knitting patterns. The basic equipment includes several knitting needles. Simple knitting needles and circular knitting needles, but also various yarns. Depending on how thick and varied in design you want your hat to be, you will need yarns in different thicknesses. For example, cotton, polyester, merino, sheep's wool or alpaca wool. Thick virgin wool is perfect for all hats that need to protect you effectively from the cold during outdoor activities. Thinner yarns, on the other hand, are used for all fashionable hats that are intended to serve as an accessory and less as thermal protection. Thick wool is therefore ideal for winter, while thinner yarns will suffice in autumn and spring because of the higher temperatures.
What is important is the feel of the garment. Some yarns are more itchy than others, which you should take into account when choosing. If you tend to sweat in the cold season, a thinner version may be the better choice. Sheep's wool hats are the warmest, but for transitional seasons we recommend cotton and spandex blends, which can be worn in all seasons and are easier to care for than virgin wool hats.
To get started you will need the following:
Once you have learned the most important knitting techniques, a variety of patterns are no longer a problem for you. This will make your hats look even more professional and you will hardly be able to tell them apart from the fashionable branded hats from the specialist shops. Matching patterns bring more life to your hat and make it a real eye-catcher. Whether you're looking for simple patterns or motifs, Crazypatterns offers knitting patterns for men's hats with specific patterns.
There are different ways to knit patterns into your hats. You can find out exactly how to do this, for example, in one of our tutorials on the YouTube channel or in the community, where professionals share their knitting knowledge on specific knitting patterns and techniques.
For the cable pattern, in addition to the basic equipment, you need an auxiliary knitting needle on which you lay down stitches and then knit them together like a cable. The technique takes a bit of practice, but the result is all the more beautiful when you hold your cable-knit hat in your hands. Alternatively, you can knit a honeycomb pattern with an auxiliary needle.
It's much easier to knit the pearl pattern, which consists of staggered stitches and makes your hat particularly chic. With the hole pattern, on the other hand, you create stitches that are easy to see through. Ideal for giving a glimpse of the inner layer of a reversible hat.
Why not knit the complete set of winter gear? At Crazypatterns you'll find the right knitting patterns for every piece. For example, you can knit gloves, scarves and hats in the same design. Tone-in-tone or with the same pattern looks particularly stylish here. Choose enough yarn for the single-colour combinations and knit all three pieces in one go. Alternatively, you can also add creative motifs to your hat, scarf and gloves - but the motto here is: less is more.
At Crazypatterns you will find a wide range of knitting patterns for men's hats, so you can knit lots of beautiful headwear with them. Choose from these different types of patterns.
