Really Easy Chunky Knit Beanie - Wendy Hinson

Materials:

Approximately 2 x 30 gram scrap balls of 8 Ply Acrylic Yarn (60 grams total). This beanie is knitted 'double' or with 2 strands of yarn. 6.5mm/Size 10.5 Knitting needles (can be straight or circular as preferred). Yarn needle to sew up seam.

PLEASE NOTE: I cannot guarantee a satisfactory result if you use yarn other than specified or different size knitting needles, as larger needles usually result in a larger garment, and pure wool (or thicker/thinner) yarn may also affect the finished size.

Cuff & Body:

With 6.5 mm (size 10) needles, Cast on 60 stitches (using 2 x strands of yarn). Beginning with a Knit 1, Purl 1; work in ribbing for 10 Rows.

Starting with a Knit row, now work in stocking stitch (1 Knit row, 1 Purl row), until garment measures 15 cm total.  (Note:  if you are using circular needles every row will be a knit row).

Crown Shaping:  decrease by 6 stitches every alternate row as follows;

1st Row:  Knit 8, Knit 2 Together, repeat to end of row.

2nd Row:  Purl

3rd Row:  Knit 7, Knit 2 Together, repeat to end of row.

4th Row:  Purl

5th Row:  Knit 6, Knit 2 Together, repeat to end of row.

6th Row:  Purl

7th Row:  Knit 5, Knit 2 Together, repeat to end of row.

8th Row:  Purl

9th Row:  Knit 4, Knit 2 Together, repeat to end of row.

10th Row:  Purl

11th Row:  Knit 3, Knit 2 Together, repeat to end of row.

12th Row:  Purl

13th Row:  Knit 2, Knit 2 Together, repeat to end of row.

14th Row:  Purl

15th Row:  Knit 1, Knit 2 Together, repeat to end of row. (12 Stitches remain)

Cut yarn, leaving a long end (for sewing). Thread yarn into yarn needle & thread through remaining stitches. Draw up tightly & fasten off securely. Stitch up seam.

This is a super pattern!

Very easy and it works out just right!

I`ve knitted quite a few beanies with this pattern and have really enjoyed doing them.

Good thing is,it really knits up ever  so fast!

So thanks Wendy for this great pattern!!!

i have made quite a few hats with two different colours at the same time, i love the tweedy effect and often, two boring colours actually look good when combined - lovely photo too.

I've seen photos of many of these in the Photos section and they always look so attractive. I've seen photos of some of these on the children too.  Bravo to everyone who makes them, they look so smart and they hug the head and keep out wind too!

These are lovely,Wendy! I love your decreases!

Thanks, Wendy, for both the Chunky Beanie and the 8 ply beanie patterns.  These hats look like they would really fit well

just love your hats, Wendy. Going to use your pattern for major stash busting exercise. Most of the yarn I buy is DK so I have had trouble adapting USA patterns to a correct fit.

Thanks so much for these threads, Anne! It's wonderful inspiration!

Anneke posted this lovely hat January 7/13

 

I found the pattern on a website by a Dutch crochet lady "Karin aan de haak" and she derived it from: Toastyfrog.net.

I used thick yarn, hook nr 5 and my hats are adult size.

Round 1

: Ch 4, join. Ch 3, make 13 DC in loop, join. (14 St)

Round 2

: Ch 3. *In 2nd st from hook, DC-Ch 2-DC (V-stitch made)* six times; DC in base of starting Ch 3, Ch 2, join. (7 V-stitches)

Round 3

: Sl St in first V-stitch space, chain 3, DC-Ch2-2DC in same space. *2DC-Ch2-2DC in next V-stitch space* six times; join.

Round 4

: Ch 3, 2DC-Ch2-2DC in V-space, DC in next st, *skip 2 st, DC in next st, 2DC-Ch2-2DC in V-space, DC in next st* six times; join.

Round 5

: Ch 3, DC in next st, 2DC-Ch2-2DC in V-space, DC in next 2 st, *skip 2 st, DC in next 2 st, 2DC-Ch2-2DC in V-space, DC in next 2 st* six times; join.

Round 6

: Ch 3, DC in next 2 st, 1 DC-Ch2- 1DC in V-space, DC in next 3 st, *skip 2 st, DC in next 3 st, DC-Ch2-DC in V-space, DC in next 3 st* six times; join.

Rounds 7-16

: Repeat round 6 ten more times

Round 17

: Ch 1, SC in next 3 st, SC-SC-SC in V-space, SC in next 4 st, *skip 2 st, SC in next 4 st, SC-SC-SC in V-space, SC in next 4 st* six times; join.

In the original pattern the last round (17) gives a very sharp lining in the V-space, that's why I did SC-SC-SC to get a more wave-like finish, it fits more with the pattern as a whole

Easy Crochet Beanie Hat - Large Child or Adult Size

I made this hat and then wrote the pattern up afterwards so I hope the pattern makes sense.  It makes a big hat, my son in the picture is 8 but it will fit up to adult.  click on the link below.  It uses about 35g DK yarn total but I used lots of teeny balls.

This is just beautiful! I love the colors and your son is a doll! Thanks so much for the pattern!
