How to Knit a Hat Inspired by Gilmore Girls | Netflix and Knit

Let’s Netflix and Knit! Learn to Knit Gilmore Girls Inspired Hat!
Lorelai’s Rib Stitch Knitted Cap + Pom Pom!

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, is finally out on Netflix.  I am about to go “Netflix + Knit”, my little binge marathon session.  Before I do, I wanted to share this knit hat. I totally fell in love with it as soon as the trailer came out and I saw the girls on their town tour. Lorelai was wearing it and I knew this would be a fun hat to figure out the pattern to and share with you.

I hope you are inspired to knit up this Gilmore Girls inspired knit hat. I had so much fun making it and I think you guys are really going to have a blast mastering this hat.
