Free Minecraft Hat Knitting Pattern

Knitted Minecraft Winter Hat for Kids

For those who don't know, Minecraft is an Online video game that was launched in 2009. It it now extremely popular among kids and adults alike. My eleven year old son plays and loves the game. So when I started getting back into knitting he asked me to knit him a Minecraft hat. If you do a web search you'll find patterns for a Creeper Hat but he wanted one with the Minecraft logo on it. What you see here is my version of a Minecraft Hat using the Minecraft logo. This is a really easy pattern that can be knit up in one weekend or even in one day if you have the time. After making one of these for my son, his best friend wanted one too!

This hat will fit a head size from about 20-22 inches in circumference measured around the ears. If you want to make it for a larger or smaller head size, just increase or decrease the cast on stiches in increments of 4 stitches.
