Whidbey Island Beanie Pattern: Fairlight Fibers
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. Shown here:
West Yorkshire Spinners The Croft in Clousta (Jess's cover hat) or Mossbank (Joe's hat)
Stonehedge Fiber Mill Shepherd's Wool Worsted in Sage (Shelli's hat)
Subculture Yarn SW Merino Worsted in Blue Camas (Jess's second hat) and January 2020's Pre-Order Yarn Club exclusive colorway!
The hat is knit in one size, which will stretch to fit a head from 15" to... well, bigger than any head we measured. Jess wears a 22" hat, Joe and Shelli are wearing theirs at 24", but it's all the same hat! Joe's hat features a slightly longer brim, which works nicely for those with larger hat sizes.
