I'm looking for free sewing patterns for fleece and/or stretchy knit hats. Pilot cap type and rolled brim. Seems like they'd be easy enough, I just need some sort of pattern to follow and sizes. All the free ones I've seen online don't taper around the head; they're like tubes that you tie the top. I'm looking for ones that follow the head.

Any ideas? Thanks?

Well I dont have a pattern, but Id just measure your head, and if using fleece, Id leave some extra for the inseam, and if I wanted to have it fold, Id just make it longer so there was extra fabric.

Here is also a site I found real quick, dont have time to read through, otherwise Id do a google of fleece hats sewing.

Thanks for answering spicensnail007. The site you show is cool adult hats. Unfortunatly I'm really looking for baby hats (don't think I mentioned that part)- I'd like to use them as gifts with blankets, so I don't have heads to measure yet Thanks for the idea of dong the google search on 'fleece hats sewing'; that was really helpful. I kept looking up 'infant hat sewing patterns' and getting sites selling patterns - even if I put 'free' in the search.

I found a few sites that have given me an idea of how to start. But doesn't anyone have an easy pattern to make baby hats?

here are a few I found

here is a free sewing patterns list

and here is a martha stewart article
with pattern instructions for baby hats

and sewingweb is a great online source for all kinds of things including free patterns. just check out the patterns new & vintage list, there are lots of free stuff on it too.

you should be able to get a whole variety of styles from there.

Happy sewing!!!
