Sew hats and caps with this collection of over fifty free hat and headwear sewing patterns & tutorials gathered from all
over the web.

And since most hats are constructed from pretty basic shapes, they can be fairly quick to make and can make a great
first project for a beginner just learning how to sew (one of the fleece designs may make an especially good first sewing
project because fleece doesn't fray).

And since many of these designs are made with knit fabrics, here are a couple of tips for working with knits: Use a
special “stretch stitch” (or a tiny zigzag stitch) when sewing your knit fabric so that the seams in your finished hat will
stretch properly when the hat is worn. And use a
ballpoint needle in your sewing machine (instead of a standard needle)
which will slide between the fibers of your knit fabric instead of piercing them.

And as you can see from a few of the designs, making a knit cap can be a great way to recycle an old sweater
(especially those colorful sweaters from the 80's we don't quite know what to do with!). And as long as the knit is fairly
tight, you can sew it just as you would any knit fabric.

Sewing Quick Tips:

Tip #1: Always hang your finished garment for at least 24 hours before hemming it. This is
especially important with fabrics that are prone to stretching, such as knits or bias-cut garments.

Tip #2: How wide should you make a skirt hem? As a general rule, give narrower skirts wider hems
and wider skirts, narrower hems. But ultimately use whatever hem width will make your skirt hang
nicely when finished.
