1 Hour Beanie – Free Knitting Pattern

Everyone needs a go-to pattern for a rush gift. This beanie fits the bill as being super cute, and knits up quickly in super chunky yarn. Given that its such a super easy, very cute, and super giftable hat, I am flipping my Friday pattern release schedule and dropping this on a Monday…. so that it’s possible to make more by Christmas Eve. You’ll just have to suffer through another knitting blog without a pattern on Friday instead.

Who wouldn’t love this 1 hour beanie?

You will need:
– super chunky yarn – I used Lionbrand Hometown
– 9mm circular knitting needle
– Darning needle
– optional pom pom – I used one of these fur ones from this pattern

Cast on 40 (44, 48) stitches

Knit 1, Purl 1 – repeat this over the whole row for a 1×1 rib.
Complete 12 (13, 14) rows of ribbing

Stockinette stitch 14 (15, 16) rows
Change colours (this is optional, so feel free to carry on without colour changing)
Stockinette stitch 4 (5, 6) rows

Shaping the crown
Knit 2, knit 2 together – repeat over the whole row
Knit 1 row
Knit 1, knit 2 together – repeat over the whole row
Knit 1 row
Knit 2 together over the whole row
Knit 1 row
Knit 2 together over the whole row.

Cut yarn with 30cm yarn tail remaining. Thread this through the remaining stitches and pull tight. Stitch the top of the hat closed. Fasten a pom pom to the top. I made one of these – which takes about 10 minutes.
