This hat is really cute and oh so unexpected!
If you like our crocheted pattern for a chemo hat but prefer to knit, you will love the free knitted pattern for a beautifully knitted hat made with chinchilla yarn.
This would be a great charity project or a special gift for someone who needs a lovely hat during a difficult time.
We have some really cute and novel free knitted hat patterns for kids. Check out the floppy bunny eared hat and the little chick hat for babies and children.
The hat having the bunny ears will keep your kiddo warm and festive at Easter, but it, of course, would be a huge hit anytime you need a warm and fun hat. This hat has instructions to fit a newborn, toddler or child.
Check out these cute free knitted patterns we found that have matching hats and socks! One of the free knitted kids hat and socks patterns is for the funniest frog you’ve ever seen.
For a sweet winter-time matching hat and sock pattern, we found one that looks like the round peppermint swirl candies.

Knit Hat by Annette from Needlepointers
One of our favorites is the seaman’s cap. It is an iconic rolled brim cap that fits snuggly over the head.
Match this up with a pea coat, and you will have the perfect winter look.
There is also a wonderful snowflake hat pattern. The colorwork is quite simple and easy enough for a beginner to try.
This snowflake hat has a leafy pattern that is fairly easy to hold in your memory, and you will love to watch the snowflakes as they appear as you knit.
Simply a lovely winter hat!
Another fun and free knitted hat pattern is done circularly. It’s a bicolor brioche that is simply spectacular to look at.
No back and forth knitting here!
The pattern is for two contrasting colors, but you could easily make it more subtle using two colors of yarn that are more similar.
We found a free pattern for a guy-friendly design with cables that will be his go-to in frigid weather, especially if you use cozy wool.
It’s not the usual ribbed design of many winter hats and can be knitted up fairly quickly as well. And of course, women will want one of their own, since cable hats are in fashion for everyone.
Have long hair that you don’t like to frizz up with a hat but find headbands not quite warm enough? We found several different free knitted patterns for a wonderful and playful knitted hat with an opening at the top for a ponytail or bun.
Moms love it for a quick on-the-go winter hat.
How about showing off your patriotic side with the free pattern using red, white and blue yarn, with “USA” knitted into the hat?
We always want to get the kids involved in crafting, and this finger knitting and yarn work skill will easily prepare them for knitting with needles.
Kids will love creating hats using the finger-knitting technique. Below you will find a free pattern to finger knit an adorable Santa cap as well as a finger knitted beanie hat.
This technique is so fun and enjoyable that you will want to work along with the kids!
Free Knitted Scarf and Cowl Patterns
Like the hat patterns we found for you, there are also many different free knitted cowl and scarf patterns for warmth as well as accessorizing.
Knit Scarf by Annette from Needlepointers
Fashion scarves are popular as accessories, and with the airy mesh yarns, we have a free pattern or two that will show you how to create beautiful scarves with ruffles.
It takes about a skein of yarn to knit one, and you can complete it in a few hours!
One of our favorite winter scarves is braided and looks so stylish and warm. Three separate flat and narrow lengths are knitted, and then the lengths are braided to create a unique and pretty winter scarf.
Use a nice soft yarn, and the lengths will curve easily as you braid them.
You will also find a free knitted pattern for a cowl-scarf combination. It is fashionable AND functional! This scarf has a nice button closure to add to the classy chunky lace look you’ll be able to create.
Like the finger-knitted caps, we have a great free scarf pattern that you knit with your fingers to make a warm and cozy winter scarf. Once again, this technique is easy for kids and fun for everyone.
Our free knitted scarf and cowl patterns are an extensive list, so please take some time to look at them below. You’ll find many more than can be mentioned here.

Free Knitted Mitten Patterns
You will find mitten patterns for everyone in the family in our list of links below.
Some are fingerless palm and arm warmers. We have a cute pattern for mittens that have a flap that opens to free your fingers when necessary as well.
Many of the patterns feature long cuffs, which are a winter must to keep little hands warm while playing in the snow.
