A soft and classic free ribbed beanie pattern with a form fit for a standard adult female. Made in one flat rectangle piece with just one stitch, joining the sides to form the hat at the end. A coordinating cowl scarf pattern is also on the blog, available here.
This is my favourite beanie pattern as its so so simple being made from one rectangle so no messing around counting, and the repetitive stitches are good for a relaxing project! A finer yarn on a beanie makes it softer and more wearable throughout the season I find, vs a chunky that can be too heavy for autumn/fall.
