Choose your superhero allegiance with this fun superhero-themed hat!

Inspired by the characters in a popular flick, this hat can be worn loud and proud by friends, family members, and superhero fans alike!

The pattern can be worked in two sizes, with the following recommended materials:

Needle Size: #7 (4.5mm) (optionally also #6 (4.0mm) , if you want a snug fit in the band)
Yarn: Berroco Vintage

  • 5100
  • 5181
  • 5131 is discontinued, so try 5121

Needle Size: #5 (3.75mm) (optionally also #4 (3.5mm), if you want a snug fit in the band)
Yarn: Knitpicks Cotlin DK

  • Moroccan Red
  • Nightfall
  • Swan
  • Pomegranate
  • Crème Brulee

This pattern is worked in the round with two-color stranded knitting. The pattern assumes use of magic loop with circular knitting needles, but it could also easily be made with double-pointed needles. It is recommended that you are familiar with these techniques before attempting this pattern.

Here is some info on jogless stripes, which can help clean up the beginning/end of striped rounds (removes the “jog” between rows that is obvious when colors change). This technique is completely optional and is not directly referenced in the pattern.

Don’t forget to show off your completed hats on the Finished Objects thread!

Thank you to apollo1gcw, Trace4545, Love4Dogs, docbg98, and hhersey for testing this pattern!

    Hi! I tried following the help links and it didn’t lead me anywhere, so I’m going to try to ask here. First off though, I live these hats, I’m on my third one and at first I thought it was a fluke and that I’d done something wrong, but every time I get to row 6, I just don’t end up with 96 stitches. As written, I get 91 every time. I have to get creative to make it 96. Had this popped up asome a problem for anyone else or something noticed in the making of the pattern? It has me very confused, lol. Otherwise it’s an awesome pattern and I thank you very much for it!

      Hi, Sean!

      I took a look at Round 6 of the pattern, and perhaps it is easier to explain it like this:

      (K4, M1) 4 times. K3, M1.

      Do the above 4 times. That should get you to 96 🙂

      Where did you find the help links, if you don’t mind me asking? I have moved away from forum help, as it was getting too much to keep track of everything!

      Happy knitting! Hope this helps!
