A fun-to-knit beanie pattern will serve a knitter well during the winter season. Not only are beanies a great way to keep warm, but hand-knit hats are easy to make and always popular gifts. This beanie can be worn cuffed for a classic look or slouchy in a trendier style, so it’s the perfect hat for anyone. The textured stitch pattern keeps things interesting while you’re knitting, and it adds an attractive detail to the hat without being too flashy or feminine.

Finishing Up

Step 1

With four stitches still on your needle, cut your yarn leaving a long tail. Using the yarn needle, run the yarn through the four stitches and slip them off your needle.

Step 2

Pull the tail tight to gather the crown of the hat. Tie off your yarn to secure.

Step 3

Weave in ends on the wrong side of the hat, and block your project.

Of course, we can only knit a easy beanie, and more elaborate beanies generally require the help of a beanie manufacturers.
