Twilight Hat - Free Pattern

I am a huge Twilight fan and I recently knitted myself a pair of “Bella’s Mittens” using Subliminal Rabbit’s pattern. I love the mittens and I want a pair in every color. Of course I decided that I needed a hat to match my new mittens so here is the pattern for the simple hat that I made. I loved the chunky earthy feel of the yarn in combination with the flirty fun crystal buttons. I hope you enjoy this project too!

If you would like a PDF copy of this pattern please just send me your email address and I would be happy to email you a copy.

Using the other loose end, whip stitch the open edge of the brim to the hat where the hat is joined in round (closing the brim into a loop but leaving the button flap open). Sew on the two buttons and slip them through the yo holes. Wet block and you’re finished!

I just finished the hat - and it is HUGE. I was concerned about the 106 stitch cast on - is that correct??

Katlyn said...

Hi - As far as the question about the size the cast on sts is correct, some of the are for the button overlap so the hat is actually smaller than the cast on size. If you would like a smaller hat I would recommend using smaller needles and adding a few rows between r13 and r14 for additional length. Hope that helps!

As I am not a skilled knitter I just followed the directions to a T. The overlap on the brim did not seem to tighten the brim sufficently. Smaller needles would certainly help but would they work with such bulky yarn?

Stuck on Row 4 like everyone else. Did anyone get an answer on how to do this?
I would love the PDF
Thanks for sharing!

Relenned tap said...

How do you do row 4?

Jessica Zeller said...

just finished this hat, and it's too small, length wise. was thinking about just adding rows to make it longer. would that help?

Jessica Zeller said...

making another one of these hats. to add length so it sits down farther like over my ears, do i just add rows to do that?

lynn aleksich said...

Hi, love a pdf file of your hat
thank you, looks cute

Becki Sharp said...

I should have read the comments before I started, there is obviously something wrong with this pattern. I just wasted hours making a hat that is too wide and too short, I now have run out of time to make my brother a Christmas gift as I need to send it to Australia. Thanks. Next time, check your pattern works before you post it!

Jane Doe said...

Can I get the PDF instructions for this hat? Also can you tell me about the row 3 that everyone has inquired about. Is the repeat just for the bracketed portion of row 3? Also I believe you said if we wanted to add height to the hat, add rows between 13 & 14, is that correct? Thank you! Anxious to give this a go! My email is

I've had this lovely pattern in my Ravelry queue since December of 2009. I'm planning on making it during this session of Harry Potter Knit and Crochet House Cup...and a PDF pattern would certainly make that easier for me. I realize you are probably very busy, but when you have the chance, I would LOVE to have you send a pdf copy to dobarah at gmail dot com. Thank you!
