This casual slouch beanie works up quickly within a couple of hours, and makes the perfect winter accessory. Inspired by my love of simple patterns, is there anything more satisfying that starting and finishing a project in an afternoon?
Total time to knit this beanie: 2.5 hours.
Difficulty: Easy/ Beginner
What you’ll need:
- 2 x 100g chunky yarn – I’m using Knit Pick’s Tuff Puff in Pomegranate.
- US Size 13 (9mm) 16″ Circular Knitting needles
- US Size 13 (9mm) Double Pointed Knitting needles (optional)
- Stitch Marker – You can purchase a set of three here.
- Tapestry needle
- K – Knit
- K2tog – Knit two stitches together
- * – Repeat from star to finish
Cast on 45 stitches using a long tail cast on. Join in the round and place stitch marker to mark the start/end of each round.
Knit every stitch until piece measures Approximately 10″ or 25cm cast on edge.
Knitting every stitch will create the stockinette stitch with a roll up brim.
(Note: for the decrease I transferred my stitches onto 3 DPN’s – 4 DPN’s total)
