Seed stitch hat

I would like to make a seed stitch hat to go with a seed stitch scarf.

Does anyone know where I can find a free pattern?

Or

If I use a regular knit hat patter with a knit 2 purl 2 edge can I just substitute the seed stitch for th k2p2 without changing the number of stitches?

Thanks

Do you have a specific hat shape in mind? The book Hip Knit Hats had some seed stitch hats. The winter 2006/2007 Knit.1 magazine has a seed stich top hat.

The Avalanche Hat looks nice (PDF file)

Here is a pattern that is free if you purchase their yarn.

This hat has a seed-stitch brim, although I think it would look nicer in a solid yarn throughout.

Thanks for the replies. I don’t have a paticular hat in mind but the Avalanche hat looks like it will work nicely. The yarn is bulky so this may be just perfect :cheering:
