Ah, the mythic Hair Clip Cap! The post that time forgot.

Sorry, I’d had this scheduled as a draft and didn’t get to it in time.



I wrote a pattern for a hair clip hat.


Because I wear my hair up in a banana clip and I can’t fit a hat over the clip!

What you need to know to knit it—


  •  decreasing
  •  seed stitch pattern
  •  mid-row cast-on
  •  crochet
  •  picking up stitches (with or without crochet hook)
  •  cutting your knitting (may require addition of alcohol) for steeks-photo instructions are provided
  •  Having knit a sock heel will help, but isn’t required


  •  Fits Women M-L and is easily adjustable up or down


  •  Stockinette or Seed Stitch, 12 stitches = 4in

Yarn ​

  •  Charisma, Loops & Threads, Bulky (CYA #5)
  •  Light worsted in a complementary color for button band


  • ​US 10.5 (6.5 mm) straight or circ
  • US 9 (5.5mm) circ (at least 20″)


  • Stitch holder, stitch marker.

Right now I have the pattern on Ravelry (where the link below will take you) but I’ll be adding a link to the Shoppe soon, too.

I hope you like it as much as I have. On the windy days I think it could use an iCord tie, but 99% of the time, the bonnet structure holds nicely and it’s easy to get on and off.
