Elle-Gator (Hat + Neck-warmer) Free Knitting Pattern for Beginners

 In Free Patterns

Elle-Gator (Hat + Neckwarmer) is our free knitting pattern for beginners

In the face of all that is overwhelming and out of our control, we here at The Woven Co have been focused on creating easy and accessible patterns so we can get knitting.

Introducing; The Elle-Gator
Elle (said Ellie) was my room mate here in Wanaka,  and needed to make the trip home to the states.  So to calm her nerves and focus on being creatively active, I  developed this pattern for her – and our wider community. The plan was a nice easy rhythmic knit that could make something lovely and wearable – from just one ball of Sumptuous.

Elle-Gator beginner knitting kit is the perfect easy and practical step into knitting, make your own neckwarmer, hat and ponytail beanie – all in one!

Elle-Gator Beginning Knitting Kit

Estimated Knit Time: Under 4 hours

Skills: Knit, cast on, cast off, a little sewing up


  • 1 x Sumptuous 75grm (150m)
  • Knit on 5mm flat or circular needles with 60 length
  • Darning needle

Gauge Approx:
17 to 18 sts per 10cm and 16.5 rows per 10cm

Pattern Notes:

To make this sweet gator, you’ll be knitting flat, both sides of the piece will be the same – so we can say there is no right side and no top or bottom.

Once we have finished knitting and casting off, we will sew the back together, and have the option to sew the top or make it a pull together top.

Piece Measures: 26cm wide by 43 to 47cm around.
