Sewing Patches on Knitted Hats

Hello, my name is Julie and I am new to this forum. I have knitted some winter hats on a loom and need to sew a patch on the brim. Does anybody know how to do this or can anybody refer me to someone that does?

Any help is appreciated!


Welcome to KH!

If you have tails on the patch you haven’t woven in yet I’d used those. I put the yarn on a large yarn needle and go through to the back and back to the front to catch a piece of the patch a few times. I’m thinking of a flower or something if you’ve got a bigger patch it would be generally the same I think. What exactly are you sewing on?

Thank you for your response.

I am sewing on a company logo. There are no tails on the patch. Are you suggesting I use yarn to sew the patch on? I was thinking that I had to use a sewing machine but I really don’t know what is best.

I don’t know that yarn would work on this and it would show. Thread is my go to thought, but I’d be concerned it would “cut through” the yarn it’s sewn to. I’m not sure. I’ll see what I can find and also tag someone for her thoughts…


This fellow uses a machine to stitch on the patch. He stitches it on without stretching the knit fabric. It’ll take away the stretchiness of that part of the hat but it seems to work quite well.

That would be great. Thank You.
