Simple Knit Beanie

beanie.jpg

A great, simple beanie can be the best staple of any outfit.  This beanie is light weight, best for spring or fall and will fit the average adult head.

Materials:

Size 8 circular and/or double point needle

Worsted weight yarn (I used Caron Simply Soft Charcoal Heather)

Stitch marker

Sewing Needle

Pattern:

Body of the hat:

CO 88 & join in the round

Row 1-6 rows:*K2, P2

Row 7 onward: Knit in the round until project reaches 7 inches tall

Crown of the hat:

Row x: *K2tog

Row x2: *K

Repeat until you have 11 stitches left (You will have to switch to dpn if you have not been using them all along.)

Take your yarn and sew it through the 11 live stitches to make a circle. Take your yarn through the center hole so your hat is inside out and weave in ends.

The end!

always, ashley

  2. I’m am so glad to hear that! K2tog is one of the easier decreases. If you are having trouble, your tension might be too tight. It’s hard to k2tog if the stitiches are too small. But keep at it! Repetition is everything. Best of luck.
