I wouldn’t really call myself a knitter—I don’t have a ton of technique or skill—but I love knitting hats. They come together quickly and don’t use a lot of material so I can justify splurging on the softest, most luxurious wool or yarn. And with a basic toque pattern you can personalize it with stripes, colours or crazy buttons. I usually start with this super simple hat calculator and then let my knitting fingers go wild from there!
