Olympic Knit Pattern Inspiration

Hello friends!

Are you watching and enjoying the Olympics? I’m sure there are many of you (like me), that don’t have a lot of time to sit and enjoy them.

I did see Chloe Kim in the snowboarding competition, though. Wasn’t she amazing? And, did you see her hat? Cute, huh?!

Designers have taken it upon themselves to create their own version of this cute winter hat.

Me included!

I’m calling mine Winter Games Chunky Hat.




The details for this cute, cozy and comfy hat are below. I hope you enjoy this fast and fun ONE skein knit. Gather your supplies, your favorite beverage and a great Netflix show. Cast On!


1 skein Super Bulky Yarn – I used Lion Brand Thick and Quick

US Size 15 Knitting Needle


Tapestry Needle, Stitch Marker, Scissors, Tape Measure (if you’re analytical like me), Pom Pom Maker


CO 44 stitches, place marker and join for working in the round.

Round 1: *K1, p1; repeat from * around.

Repeat round 1 until hat measure 10.5″ or desired length. This length includes a 2.5″ rolled up brim.

Next Round: *k2tog; repeat from * around. 22 sts

Next Round: *k2tog; repeat from * around. 11 sts


Using a tapestry needle, thread remaining 11 stitches through, pull tight and secure inside the hat. Weave in all ends.

Pom Poms can be made various ways. I chose to use the largest Pom Pom maker. Attach, wear and gets lots of compliments.

Knit On!

  1. Just wondering on you gauge….are you using k1,p1 for guage….and are you stretching the sample to get 4 inches? 7 rows with size 17 needle is only 3 inches
    I have a number US17 needle and a US13 but no 15 do you think I could make a hat with those needles? I am knitting a sample with 16 stitches to see how it looks!

    1. Hi! No I’m not stretching the sample. If you use a 17 it will be larger and a 15 will make it smaller. You could try it. I buy my needles on amazon. The prices are nice, In case you’re wanting to grab a 15. 😊

  2. Thank you for sharing this great pattern! I am making 10 of them for my daughter and her running group. They would like a label on it and I have no idea where to get them. Where did you find yours?
