Johnny B Warm Hat – diagonal knit pattern

This post may contain affiliate links. If you purchase something from one of these links I will be compensated. Thank you.

Diagonal knit patterns always catch my eye. So, when I needed a quick unisex hat, knitting it diagonally seemed like the right answer to me.

I searched around for some various short row techniques until I found one that was perfect for my needs. It’s actually the easiest way to do short rows I’ve ever tried, and it helps give the hat the shaping it needs. The Johnny B Warm Hat is a great stash-buster as it is made holding 3 or 4 strands of yarn (depending on the size) together as one.

You can find a matching scarf pattern HERE.

Bind off all stitches then seam cast on and bind off together. Take extra care in seaming the bottom 2” of the hat so if it’s folded up the seam looks nice on the inside.

Wear or give and enjoy!
