Double Brim Hat Knitting Pattern (Written pattern and Tutorial)

Ok, I’m off the Hyyge yarn and crochet for a bit. It’s time to go down the knitting rabbit hole!

I’m really enjoying making these double brim knitted hats right now. They’re very beginner friendly. I’m on a faux fur pom pom kick right now (I’m even learning how to make them), but you can skip that part and the hat’s are still beautiful without them.

There’s also a video tutorial for added ease. If you’d like the printable PDF version of this pattern with different sizes( women’s : S – L ), visit my Etsy shop here

I’ve included a list of all the materials, some of which are affiliate links (you know the drill). I hope you enjoy this simple little knitting project. If you have any questions, feel free to hit me up on here or my social media for answers. Enjoy 🙂


Stitches used & code

  • co = cast on
  • bo = bind off
  • k = knit
  • rep = repeat
  • pm = place marker
  • st = stitch(es)

Gauge : 14 st x 20 rows = 4″

Size and Measurements :

  • Size M ( fit most women ) = 18″ circumference stretches out to 21″ wide x 12″ tall

Notes :

  • First color(color A) it’s going to be inside of the brim
  • Place marker at beginning of round


Hat Pattern

co 63 st, pm and Join for working in the round( make sure not to twist st )

Round 1 – 18 ( color A ) : k all

Round 19 – 32 ( color B ) : k all

Round 33 ( color B ) : Fold your brim inside the hat and take the first co st into left needle and then k the first st and first co st together and repeat with each st and each co st around. ( check picture below )

Round 34 – 60 ( color B ) : k all

*The end of round 60, cut the yarn and leave 18″ tails.

Closing up the hat

Draw through remaining stitches around. Pull tight and bring your tail through to the inside of the hat. Make as many knots as you need till the hat feels secure. Weave the end and trim the tail.

Attaching pom pom

Attach the pom pom to the outside top, tie a few knots from the inside of the hat

Congratulations, you’ve made a hat, nice job!

    I have Berroco Comfort worsted weight yarn.
    My head measure 22”
    How many do I cast on using this yarn?

    You can cast on till you have 19-20″ circumference, that should be about right for your size.

    Great pattern and the double brim acts as a nice ear warmer! Will be making it again. 🙂

    There seems to be an error in the pattern.
    CO 63 = multiple of 9 (x7) which matches the first decrease round (k7, k2tog).
    The chart is a multiple of 8 x 7 = 56, not 63).
    Putting slip markers between each 8 stitches (or whatever the repeat is) helps to keep on track, and a chart of just the repeat is also easier to work with, especially for changing the size just add or subtract 1 pattern repeat.

    I’m not sure which you’re talking about, there’s no decrease or increase in the pattern you’re commenting on. This is worked in the round straight. Is there another pattern you’re referring to?

    A Provisional cast on would make joining the making the double brim a lot easier. Great pattern!

    Thats great to hear, thanks for the comment. The first one’s always just practice, you’ll nail the second (or third) one lol. The great thing is, everyone can use a nice hat so you can practice making them and give them to friends, family or donate them. Just make sure you have fun!
