Gilmore Girls Ribbed Knit Hat Pattern

Learn to make your Gilmore Girls Ribbed Knit Hat inspired by Lorelai’s adorably cozy beanie! Before I kick off my “Netflix + Knit” binge marathon session, I have to share this classic knit hat pattern with you. As soon as the trailer came out and I saw the character Lorelai was wearing it, I was obsessed to figure out how to write up the pattern for you.

I had so much fun making it and I think you are going to have a blast mastering this ribbed knitted hat. For the free written pattern instructions and video tutorial, please continue reading to learn how to knit this ribbed hat on circular needles. You may also choose to purchase my ad-free printable pdf pattern on EtsyLoveCrafts, or Ravelry. Thanks!
