Please Note: This listing is for a KNITTING PATTERN only, not a finished product. You will receive a digital, downloadable file of instructions to knit this hat. If you would like to purchase a finished hat, please check my shop listings for a finished product!
This pattern pack includes instructions for FIVE SIZES of the Sunrise Hat: infant (0-1 years), toddler (1-3 years), child (3-10 years), adult woman/teen, and adult large/man. **This pattern includes the ADULT size, so no need to purchase the adult size-only pattern separately from my other listing!**
I created this pattern as a way to use up scraps of yarn leftover from making hats. The variegated yarn from three colorways of your choice creates a beautiful ombre effect, inspired by my love of sunrises. For a coordinating cowl pattern, see the SUNRISE COWL pattern in my shop!
Skill Level: Easy
- US15/10mm 16” Circular Knitting Needles
- US13/9mm 16" Circular Knitting Needles
- Super bulky weight yarn (weight 6), for a total of approximately 75 yards for adult size (Color A: approx. 35 yards, Color B: approx. 25 yards, Color C: approx. 15 yards)
- Recommended yarn: Malabrigo Rasta (yarn used in main picture: Malabrigo Rasta in Ivory, Porrinho, and Valentina colorways)
This pattern is beginner friendly, but you will need to be familiar with knitting in the round, knit and purl stitches, decreasing stitches, color changes, and basic colorwork to knit this pattern. The pattern includes a link to a video tutorial on my YouTube channel.

Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value.
Occasionally I can accept custom orders, depending on supply availability and capacity. Please send a message with what you're looking for and I'll respond back to let you know if it's possible.

- Hand wash cold in gentle detergent, reshape and air dry flat.
- Do not put in washing machine or dryer, as this will cause your wool item to felt.
- Remove pom pom before washing for best results (pom pom can be removed by untying from inside).
- Fluff pom pom to refresh by gently brushing with comb or cool heat from a hair dryer.
All wool will stretch over time. If you feel your hat has gotten too stretched out, follow the instructions above to wash it, then reshape it to desired shape, and allow to dry. This should reshape it to its original size.
Detailed measurements of each item are provided in each listing description. Hats are made with chunky merino wool or wool. Hats will be fitted on medium/larger heads with taller foreheads, or slouchy/tall on smaller/medium heads with short foreheads.
If you have any questions about sizing or fit, feel free to send me a message! All listings include a video of the fit on my own head (which is larger, with a tall forehead).
All wool will stretch over time. If your hat feels small (especially at the brim) when it arrives, know that it will stretch over time (after a few wears) and mold to your head shape.
