I want to line a hat that I knit for my granddaughter with fleece. I've seen a lot of videos that use a scrap of fleece but I want the lining to cover the entire inside of the hat.

The few videos I've seen sew the lining in by hand but I want to sew the lining on my machine. I don't know if this can be done. Has anyone does this or know of a resource? Any ideas?

If you make a gored lining with the fleece, you can leave a small section of one of the seams open to turn the hat through after sewing...then stitch the short seam by hand or by machine.

Ditto! I've done this. And you don't have to leave much open...just a few inches, which you would then hand sew shut.

I lined a scratchy hand knit wool hat with fleece years ago. I can't remember exactly how I did it, but I think I lined it the same as you would line any hat. I either used the method already described in this thread, or turned under the edge of the lining and sewed it too the edge of the wool hat. I based my pattern pieces off the wool hat, but only lined the part of the hat that touched the head (the knitted hat had a long pointy, floppy tail). It was definitely by machine, used the same color fleece and thread as the yarn.

If your machine has a stretch stitch, that's perfect. Otherwise just use a narrow zigzag so the hat still has some stretch. I've lined many a knit hat, bag, etc. on my machine.

Thanks everyone I see I said the hat is for my granddaughter but its for my grandson who is due November 11th. I lined the hat with a stretchy knit fabric using a small zig-zag stitch. I thought stretchy fabric would be better because the hat can stretch from a head circumference of 13 to 16. I dont know why but I lost some of the stretchiness on the knit hat it lays open wider but itll work fine I think.

My son is in the Air Force and stationed in Japan. Right now he is in Qatar and due home in 2 weeks (right before baby is due). The hat is a football shape and I should have just enough time to send the hat to Japan so when baby arrives he and daddy can watch the Browns together!

Thanks everyone.
