The Wool and the Gang Maggie Hat kit is the hat you need to knit for this winter. You will be snug and cozy in this soft, lush hat and look stylish to boot! Pick and mix two colours, or make it with one if you prefer, and add an optional pom pom for multiple styling options. It’s an easy hat to knit, suitable for beginners or someone who wants to spend a couple of afternoons creating a trendy topper that’s easy on the eyes.
If you’re a beginner knitting the Maggie Hat, you’ll learn 1×1 rib and stocking stitch.
The Maggie Hat kit uses Wool and the Gang’s Alpachino Merino. It’s a bulky alpaca/merino blend that is soft, squishy and feels like wrapping your head in a giant cozy hug. It’s also 100% natural and it’s a perfect weight for year-round knitting.

You will want both knitting needles and a sewing needle for this project, and possibly a pompom maker if you don’t have one. But if you don’t have any on hand, visit our Needles and Hooks and Tools and Accessories sections.
You get an A5 booklet with all the instructions you need to make this hat, including tutorials and descriptions of the techniques involved, so this is perfect if you are just starting out!
