Cut the fabric

Measure the circumference of your head (or the head of the person you are sewing for). Download thefree fleece hat pattern, adjust it to fit your measurements and cut it out.

Use the pattern as a guide to cut the fabric on the fold.

Cut two identical pieces from each of the fabrics, so that you have four in total.

Sew the hat

Place the lining fabric pieces over the outer fabric pieces with their right sides facing in and align the edges. You will have two double-layer hat shapes.

Sew each set along the bottom edge.

Spread the fabric and press the seam open. Fold the fabric in half so that the right sides are in and the curved edges align. Then stitch the two shortest edges near the corners. Repeat for the second fabric piece.

Finish the hat

Unfold each fabric piece and set them onto each other with their right sides facing in and stitch all around them. Leave a small gap unstitched for turning.

Turn the hat and sew the opening shut by hand.

Push in the side you want to be the inner one and you’re done!
