How to Knit | Men's Beanie

It has been requested over and over that I share how to knit a men's beanie, so I thought I'd share the patterns to one of my favorites that I've made for Joe.  It has an almost mock rib to it, so it's a little more unique, but still isn't very difficult to do!  I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do!


Materials

  • 1 skein Yarn Bee Baby Bee Sweet Delight in Licorice
  • Size 6 knitting needles
  • Yarn needle
Brim

Cast on 98 sts.

Row 1: k2, (p2, k2) to end of row.
Row 2: p2, (k2, p2) to end of row.
Repeat Rows 1-2 7 times more.

Increase Rows

Row 1: kfb, kfb, (k1, kfb) to end of row - 148 sts. 
Row 2: purl across.

Body

Row 1: (sl 1 knitwise, k1) across.
Row 2: sl 1 purlwise, purl to end of row.
Repeat until hat is desired length.

Crown

Row 1: {(sl 1 knitwise, k1) 6 times, sl 1 knitwise, k2tog, (k1, sl 1 knitwise) 6 times, k1, k2`} to end of row.
Row 2 (and all WS rows): sl 1 purlwise, purl to end of row.
Row 3: {(sl 1 knitwise, k1) 6 times, k2tog, (k1, sl 1 knitwise) 6 times, k2tog} to end of row.
Row 5: {(sl 1 knitwise, k1) 5 times, sl 1 knitwise, k2tog, (k1, sl 1 knitwise) 5 times, k1, k2tog} to end of row.
Continue decreasing in this manner, until you have worked a full row of k2tog.

Finishing
Cut yarn, and thread through remaining sts.  Pull tight to close the crown of the hat.  Seam the sides of the hat together, and weave in all loose ends.
