Clinica needs more hats! Our contact there told us that they handed out the last batch of hats we gave her in a matter of hours! So we need to make some more hats. To make this a fun challenge, I thought we could try a game of Hat BINGO.
Click here for your card: GET A BINGO CARD
You'll see 24 squares, each with a pattern name, and one free space in the middle. To get a bingo, knit 5 hats - all the patterns in a row (across, down, or diagonal). If you use the free space, you still need to knit 5 hats, but one can be any pattern you like - on the card, a duplicate, or some other pattern or improvisation you like. Snap a photo of your 5 hats for proof of your bingo - there will be prizes!
I've included a few patterns we've shared on the website, and the rest are all free patterns on Ravelry. Many of them are adult size, but you can usually size down for a kid's hat (leave a comment if you need guidance on sizing a pattern down). Or just make an adult size - Clinica can use those too! Most of these are simple patterns, and a few are a little more challenging, with simple cables or stranded colorwork.
The above link randomly generates a card, so if you don't like your card, just click the link again until you get one you like.
Here are the links to all the hat patterns. They are all free! They all use worsted weight yarn and approximately a US 7 needle (you can probably go up to 8 or down to 6 in most cases). If you have trouble accessing any of these patterns, leave me a comment here.
Have fun with this! Let's see what we can do. I can't wait to see all your beautiful hats.
Note: If you don't have time to knit 5 hats, do not worry! All of your knitted contributions are appreciated, and we all have seasons of prolific knitting and drier spells. You are a valued member of this group regardless of your output. Feel free to use this list as a resource/inspiration/future planning if you don't want to play Hat BINGO.
