          12 Super-Quick Chunky Hats to Knit This Weekend

          Actions

          These chunky knit hat patterns will, indeed, help you fight off cold, windy weather. There are basic chunky knit hats that show off the yarn with a simple stockinette stitch, and then there are more challenging hats that feature cables or other textured stitches.

          One of the many advantages of knitting a chunky knit hat pattern is that it works up super fast. Choose one of these hats to knit, and we bet you can finish it in just a few hours!

          1. Candyfloss Hat

          Show off your fave super bulky yarn with this honeycomb-textured stitch . Stick with lighter colors if you really want to spotlight the texture. We love how the designer paired a complementary-colored pom pom with these samples, but you can also make a pom pom that matches the color of the hat.

          2. Chunky Cloche Hat

          We're really digging this chunky twist on a classic hat. There are two brim options for this hat: a garter stitch brim like the one pictured here and a seed stitch brim. Add either buttons or a brooch to your brim for a little something special.

          3. Sweet Hat

          Yay for texture! This hat features pretty braided cables that criss-cross back and forth to show off your chunky yarn. To show off that yarn even more, add a bold pom pom to the top.

          4. Chunky Nautical Hat

          Chunky yarns don't always need to make a bold statement. If you're looking for a style that's a bit more unisex, try a basic pattern like this one that uses stockinette stitch.
