Gallery-Basic Knit Kippah

Right now information on knitting my Basic Knit Kippah is scattered around the Interwebs and I’m trying to collect it here in one place. You can always find the most up-to-date version of my kippah pattern on my free knitting patterns page.

Back in May 2005  I hosted a “Kippalong” on the Yarnaholic Confessions group blog on Blogger where we learned how to knit a kippah/yarmulke. Here are those posts in chronological order:


Kippalong 1: The Yarn makes the Kippah

Kippalong 2: More about “The Yarn makes the Kippah” and Cast-on choices

Kippalong 3: Mosaics, Faux Pas, and Other Edges and Finishes

Kippalong Redux-How Do I…? (Tip: Click on the first image to open the Gallery and follow along!)

  1. My granddaughter will be a Bat Mitzvah on April 25th, & she wants me to knit her Kippah with stripes of her favorite colors. Do you have a pattern for a girls Kippah with various bands of color? I would be very happy to buy the pattern if I can download it as a PDF
    Thank you,

    1. Mazal tov on your upcoming simcha! No need to buy anything. You can download this pattern from my free patterns page and use whatever colors you like. The only reason these kippahs are in a range of blues is because that is what my son wanted. 🙂


      1. Thank you so much. I’ve been searching tutorials for days in vain on the internet. Thank you to share it freely… ❤ Shana Tova ve Hag Sameah
