Dottie Hat Knitting Pattern

The Dottie Hat is the perfect hat knitting pattern to transition into Spring. Here in the Midwest, we are still seeing snow in mid-May, so it’s not far fetched that a breathable lace knit hat might last into June. Honestly, as long as I’ve got a hat on my needles I’m not that depressed about it.

The Dottie Hat is a simple hat knitting pattern with a 6 round repeating pattern that is easy enough to follow while you watch T.V. but challenging enough to keep you interested. You’ll need DK weight yarn, size 6 & circular needles, as well as size 7 double pointed needles for decreasing.


Yarn & Materials:

Dk weight yarn /About 200-220 yards

Stitch Marker


Needles: 

US Size 6 (4.0mm) / 16 inch (40cm. Circular needles)

US Size 7 (4.5mm) / 16 inch (40cm. Circular needles)

US Size 7 (4.5mm) Double pointed needles


Abbreviations:

CO : Cast on

Pm : Place Marker

K : Knit

P : Purl

yo : Yarn Over

Ssk : Slip, slip, knit


Gauge: 24sts. & 28 rows = 4”
