Winter hat with faux fur trimming tutorial

knitted hatA winter hat with faux fur trim will be the perfect accessory for those cold winter days ahead.  The amount of fur you will need is very little, which makes this the perfect project if you have never worked with fur before.  This is a super cool and adorable winter hat.  I promise you that it will make a very nice present for Christmas or a great accessory addition to your wardrobe.

I am using ribbing fabric for the cap and the brim, but this is the perfect opportunity to upcycle an old sweater that you do not like and transform it into a winter hat.  No fur for the band? No problem, use fleece instead.

Key Features:

  • Elegant fur trim framing the face
  • Perfect hat for a day on the snow, sky lodge hangout or a windy day
  • Casual yet elegant
  • Very easy on the making and the budget
  • Opportunity to upcycle an unloved sweater


Fabric Requirements:

  • One (1) piece of faux fur of 22 3/4″ by 4″ (or Double knit or Fleece)
  • One (1) piece Ribbing 22 3/4″ by 4″
  • One (1) piece Ribbing 23″ x 8″

    Thank you for sharing this article. It’s feel good to wear fur hats in winter. I have brought a fur hat from an online store Amifur, this provides good quality of products. I have experienced.

    Where are the directions for sewing the winter hat with faux fur trim? They don’t download with the pattern.

    Very cute. I’d love to make a Cloche. Could that be coming later? It seems like Craftsy might be open to a sewn hat class. They have knitted & crocheted ones, but none that are sewn that I know of. Wishing….
