2-Hour Knit Beanie

 2-Hour #Knit #Beanie. Using @redheartyarns #ChicSheep #Yarn, I made this one for #ME! Work this one up with alternating knit and purl stitches and you’ll have it done in a flash. 

Choose a soft, luxurious yarn for this project. It’s worth the investment! Chic Sheep is a wool blend which makes for the perfect cool-weather accessory.


Pattern Notes:

This pattern is worked from the band ribbing up to top, using two strands of yarn at the same time. It is a simple pattern that only uses knit an purl stitches so it works up quickly! The pattern works up as a circular tube with the top open to be gathered/cinched closed to create the texture at the top. The pattern can be increased/decreased with multiples of 4 sts. See sizing chart below for correct sizing.

Sizing and Gauge:

This pattern is written for a Medium Adult and the pattern can be increased/decreased with multiples of 2 sts. Work up a swatch and see sizing chart below to adjust for sizing.
