I found the perfect hat pattern! The Musselburgh hat from Ysolda pattern is awesome. All you have to do is pick your hat size, choose whatever yarn and needle you want to use, and start knitting. There’s a point where you check your knitting gauge, and then you follow the instructions for your gauge and size. You don’t have to swatch first to get your gauge! How amazing is that?
This is a great pattern for beginners because it teaches you the basics of increasing and decreasing stitches and knitting in the round.
Grab this pattern, it is a must-have for your library.

I picked this hat pattern to use up scrap sock yarn. Instead of weaving in ends afterward, I weaved in ends as I knit. The technique I used is shown below.
I love that this hat is double-layered and even has a cuff that can be folded to keep your ears extra warm. The hat is reversible too! Now I want to buy all the beautiful hand-dyed colors and knit hats for everyone I know!
