Ombré Knit Hat Pattern

I wanted a simple hat to knit up quickly to add to my handmade Christmas gifts. I didn't want to use any special stitches or anything like that since the yarn itself is so pretty with its gradient and it didn't need anything like that. So this is what I came up with. You could easily knit this up in a day and have it ready to give at Christmas. :)

Materials Used:

Half a skein of Schoppel-Wolle Gradient in the colorway 1508 (approx. 140 yards worsted weight yarn)

US 5 - 3.75 mm circular needle or dpns

US 8 - 5.0 mm 

circular needle or 


US 8 - 5.0 mm 



CO 88 with size 5 needle

K1, P1 

Continue K1, P1 ribbing for 2 inches

Change to size 8 needle, k2, p2 for two rows 

Knit each row (stockinette) until piece measures about 6 inches from CO edge

For decreasing K9, k2tog, pm, repeat all the way around to beginning

Knit 1 round

Knit to 2 sts before the marker, k2tog, sm, repeat around to beginning

Repeat decrease round alternating with Knit 1 round until there are 10 stitches or so left,  (I can’t remember) switching to dpns when necessary. Break yarn and thread through remaining live stitches on your needle, pull tight to close the hat up.

Weave in ends.
