About the Pattern

I designed this Cars hat for Cars Land at Disney’s California Adventure. The immersive experience of the land is certainly incredible and I wanted to be a part of it. When all the neon lights come on at sunset it is a highlight of the day. You will feel like you belong among the cars when you’re wearing this hat!

It’s easy to make your favorite car with the Car Eyes pattern because all you have to do is change the color accordingly. Another feature that makes the cars hat pattern versatile is that it includes child and adult sizes. Don’t let my photos fool you, though. I made all 3 of my samples in adult size and put them on my kids anyway! Now the same kids are teenagers, so I can bring the big hats for them on our next trip. It all worked out despite my poor planning!

My samples are all knit in Knit Picks Wool of the Andes worsted. If you want a softer yarn, Knit Picks Swish worsted would be a great substitute.

For more Disney knitting fun, see my Warrior, Ariel, and Mr. Otter patterns.
