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.
Size 6 circular needles (I use addi turbo 10″ circular needles)
Worsted weight yarn – 4 weight (I use Caron Simply Soft)
CO 56 (newborn) or 64 sts (baby)
Rows 1-6: K1, P1
6 inches from brim to top: K*
Binding off (Switching to dps when needed): K2tog* one row then K* one row
Continue until you have 7 (newborn) or 8 (baby) sts left
Cut your yarn and weave your 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.
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!
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!
Size 13 needles
Super chunky yarn – 6 weight (I used Loops & Threads Country Loom in Driftwood)
CO 18 sts
All Rows: K1, P1
Repeat until you reach your desired length (I used all 104 yards of my yarn)
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.
