Pattern Description: Sometimes the best things in life are astonishingly simple. This easy hat is about as basic as they come: just 1x1rib with a neat row of knit stitches to decorate the edge of the folded rim. Simple decreases are spaced to keep the hat from rising up or being too pointy. It’s basic, beautiful, and squishy-warm! Perfect for gifts, quick knits, and soon to be your favorite staple.
The Whidbey Island Beanie is knit in the round from 60-70 grams of worsted or light aran-weight yarn and can be made from a variety of fibers. The hat is knit in one size, which will stretch to fit a head from 15” to… well, bigger than any head we measured. You can knit a slightly longer brim, which works nicely for those with larger hat sizes.
This is my favorite hat. I have now made it in a dozen yarns for myself and family. Just trust me.
