Baby Beanie Pattern

Baby beanies are one of my favorite things to knit. They are small, fast, cute and easy to stylize. One of these hats without the extra duplicate stitch work takes only 2 hours or less.

Materials:

Size 6 circular needles (I use addi turbo 10″ circular needles)

Worsted weight yarn – 4 weight (I use Caron Simply Soft)

Stitch marker

Sewing needle

Pattern:

CO 56 (newborn), 60 sts (2-6 months), or 64 sts (7-12 months)

Rows 1-6: K1, P1

Knit for 4.5 inches (newborn), 5.5 inches (2-6 months), or 6.5 inches (7-12 months) from brim to top

Binding off (Switching to dps when needed): K2tog* one row then K* one row

Stopping on a k2tog row, continue until you have under 10 ers across all of your dpns. *Note: for the 2-6 month size, you will have one extra stitch after k2tog around. Knit this stitch normally to complete the round.

Finishing:

Cut your yarn and weave it through your live stitches to create a circle.

Pull the circle closed, thread the yarn through the middle and flip the hat inside out to weave in ends. Having trouble? This should help.

Now, you can either leave your hat plain or choose to add a pom pom or do a duplicate stitch to add some character.

Here are some of my favorite designs!

Chunky Infinity Scarf

20170502_185644

Infinity scarves may just be the best thing that ever happened to Fall and Winter fashion. They are stupid simple to wear, they keep you toasty warm and they can be warn by anyone, regardless of age.  This pattern is for a chunky, ribbed infinity scarf with a mobius twist. I know it sounds like alot, but it will probably be one of the easiest things you have ever had to knit. In fact, you might just end up knitting a bunch for holiday presents!

20170502_190103

Materials:

Size 13 needles

Super chunky yarn – 6 weight (I used Loops & Threads Country Loom in Driftwood)

Sewing Needle

Pattern:

CO 18 sts

All Rows: K1, P1

Repeat until you reach your desired length (I used all 104 yards of my yarn)

Finishing:

Bind off you project and create a mobius twist by holding your project flat and rotating one end so there is a single twist in your scarf. It may seem unnecessary now, but the twist helps it look better when looped over your head.

Sew your project’s ends together, keeping this twist in your scarf. Weave in your ends and cut the excess yarn.

Ta-da! Now wrap that bad boy around your neck twice and you are ready to go. Easy peasy.

(Pardon the alliteration!)
