Modern Knit Beanie Free Pattern

I came up with this pattern for a fun, fashionable beanie while browsing through my book of knitting stitches.  I wanted to make something colourful, easy and quick – but a little bit different and more feminine from the typical knit hat.   If you are wondering who the model is, well its me!  It feels so strange using my photo, but I wanted to post the pattern as soon as I could for you guys so there was no time to find a better model.

Here is what you will need to make this beanie:

Knit Picks Mighty Stitch Yarn

Gauge

19 Stitches, 27 Rows = 4 Inches in stockinette stitch

Sizes:

Adult

Abbreviations:

K: Knit

P: Purl

K2Tog: Knit two together

Pattern

Cast on 88 Stitches.  Place the stitch marker to mark the beginning of the round and join being careful not to twist your work.

Rounds 1-10: K2, P2 (repeat until end of round) to make 2 X 2 rib stitch.

Round 11: Knit all stitches.

Round 12: *K1, P1; repeat from * to end of round.

Round 13: Knit all stitches.

Round 14: *P1, K1; repeat from * to end of round.

Repeat Rounds 11-14 until hat measures 5.5 Inches from top to bottom.

Start decreasing to shape the top of the hat:

Round 1: *K6, K2tog, repeat from * to end of row (77 stitches remaining).

Round 2: *K1, P1; repeat from * to end of round.

Round 3: *K5, K2tog, repeat from * to end of row (66 stitches remaining).

Round 4: *P1, K1; repeat from * to end of round.

Round 5: *K4, K2tog, repeat from * to end of row (55 stitches remaining).

Round 6: *K1, P1; repeat from * to end of round.

I switched to double pointed needles at this point.

Round 7: *K3, K2tog, repeat from * to end of row (44 stitches remaining).

Round 8: *P1, K1; repeat from * to end of round.

Round 9: *K2, K2tog, repeat from * to end of round (33 stitches remaining).

Round 10: *K1, P1; repeat from * to end of round.

Round 11: *K1, K2tog; repeat from * to end of round (22 stitches remaining).

Round 12: *K2tog; repeat from * to end of round (11 stitches remaining).

Finishing

Cut yarn (leave a long tail) and pull through yarn needle.  Thread through the remaining stitches and pull tight.  Secure and weave in ends.

    I enjoyed knitting this pattern very muchI
    As a novice knitter I found the instructions easy to follow and I was proud of my finished cap !
    I chose the same color as the model .
    I am ready to start a new cap in a different color.

  • Sara Messenger says:

    I absolutely love this pattern! I want to knit a hat for my sister-in-law for Christmas. I had already picked out some beautiful yarn for her but it is DK. Is there a way to adapt this hat so that I can use DK or should I search for new yarn?

    • Leelee says:

      Hi Sara, this hat requires a multiple of 11 for the decreases, but also a multiple of 4…. I can’t see a number of stitches working if you were to increase the stitch count. I think you would be better off using a worsted weight yarn and its important to also check that the gauge is correct.

  • Brittany Baker says:

    Hi, i recently made this hat and i love it. but its a bit too big is there anyway to make it smaller? how would i know what number of stitches to use. i need it for a head circumference of 21 inches

    I am going to try this pattern and send them to cancer centers in our area. Bet the ladies will love this pattern.

  • Jill says:

    Do you have to switch to double pointed needles or could you continue to use circular?

  • Shar Newman says:

    “No time to find a better model” ?!? You are adorable and so is the hat!

  • sandie says:

    I just made this for my daughter. So easy and really pretty, the texture makes it very special .Thanks so much for sharing! Of course now I have to knit one for the other daughter and me.. … 😉

    Hi Leelee,
    Thanks for sharing this great beanie pattern. I made it a few weeks ago and it turned out perfect. I was just wondering if you think I could use a different stitch next time to create a slightly different look. I was thinking of using either the seed stitch or American moss stitch after the 2×2 ribbing. Do you think that would work as long as I stuck to the multiples of 11 idea?
    I look forward to hearing your thoughts on this.
    Kind regards,
    Kate
