Knit Ribbed Beanie with Catchy Crown

Happy Friday everyone and Happy Easter! I hope you are doing well and staying healthy during these hard days for the whole world. Even when it is a perfect weather for going out and enjoying the sunshine I beg everyone to be more patient and stay home for a little while. To keep you busy at home I am happy to share another free pattern of ribbed beanie with catchy crown. Also take a look at Queen Ribbed Knit Beanie and choose your favourite one.

Knitting materials and knitting tools:

<> 5 Double Pointed Knitting Needles 3.5 mm (US 4). You can use 16” Circular Knitting Needles and magic loop technique to knit in the round;

<> Knit Picks, Simply Wool (Bulky) - 100% Eco Wool.  Color #: OC, 100 grams -193 yards per skein – in total less than 1 ball;

Knit ribbed hat size:

Adult: 53-59 cm

Gauge: 18 sts – 4 inches (10 cm) – in ribbing 3x2

Note for knitters:

At the end the right side of the hat will be on its wrong side, so pay attention that you don’t leave any yarn tails and knots on the wrong side.

Common abbreviations of knitting stitches:

k – knit

p – purl

k2tog – knit two together

skpo - Slip, Knit, Pass Over: Slip one stitch to the right needle knitwise, knit in the next stitch and drop this stitch off the left needle, insert the left needle into the slipped stitch, pass it over the knit stitch and it's done.

pm – place marker

Body of the ribbed knit beanie:

Сast on a minimum of 90 stitches or any other number that is divisible by 10. It can be 100 or 110 sts. Join to knit in the round. Place marker and be careful not to twist stiches. Rib k3, p2 until beanie reaches 26-27 cm if you want a folded brim, or 18-19 cm if you want a hat without brim. From my experience the hat with folded brim looks more complete and of course warmer for chilly days.

Shaping the crown of ribbed knit hat:

What we are going to do next is to divide all stitches for 2 parts (in my case it is 45 and 45 stitches) and place marker in between. Then find 8 stitches in the middle and place 1 marker from each side to separate them from all other stitches. Repeat for the second part. As you can see from my video explanation I [ribbed 20 sts, pm, ribbed 8 sts, pm, ribbided 17 sts] – repeat twice. The 8 sts that you have separated have look like k3, p2, k3, only this way you are going to receive desired crown.

Round 1: [ (k3, p2) – repeat 3 times, k3, p1, k2tog k2, p2, k2, scpo, p1 (k3, p2) – repeat 3 times] – repeat twice.

Round 2: [ (k3, p2) – repeat 3 times, k3, k2tog k2, p2, k2, scpo, (k3, p2) – repeat 3 times] – repeat twice.

Round 3: [ (k3, p2) – repeat 3 times, k2, k2tog k2, p2, k2, scpo, k2, p2, (k3, p2) – repeat 2 times] – repeat twice.

Round 4: [ (k3, p2) – repeat 3 times, k1, k2tog k2, p2, k2, scpo, k1, p2, (k3, p2) – repeat 2 times] – repeat twice.

Round 5: [ (k3, p2) – repeat 3 times, k2tog k2, p2, k2, scpo, p2, (k3, p2) – repeat 2 times] – repeat twice.

Round 6: [ (k3, p2) – repeat twice, k3, p1, k2tog, k2, p2, k2, scpo, p1, (k3, p2) – repeat 2 times] – repeat twice.

Round 7: [ (k3, p2) – repeat twice, k3, k2tog, k2, p2, k2, scpo, (k3, p2) – repeat 2 times] – repeat twice.

Round 8: [ (k3, p2) – repeat twice, k2, k2tog, k2, p2, k2, scpo, k2, p2, k3, p2] – repeat twice.

Round 9: [ (k3, p2) – repeat twice, k1, k2tog, k2, p2, k2, scpo, k1, p2, k3, p2] – repeat twice.

Round 10: [ (k3, p2) – repeat twice, k2tog, k2, p2, k2, scpo, p2, k3, p2] – repeat twice.

Round 11: [ k3, p2, k3, p1, k2tog, k2, p2, k2, scpo, p1, k3, p2] – repeat twice.

Round 12: [ k3, p2, k3, k2tog, k2, p2, k2, scpo, k3, p2] – repeat twice.

Round 13: [ k3, p2, k2, k2tog, k2, p2, k2, scpo, k2, p2] – repeat twice.

Round 14: [ k3, p2, k1, k2tog, k2, p2, k2, scpo, k1, p2] – repeat twice.

Round 15: [ k3, p2, k2tog, k2, p2, k2, scpo, p2] – repeat twice.

Round 16: [ k3, p1, k2tog, k2, p2, k2, scpo, p1] – repeat twice.

Round 17: [ k3, k2tog, k2, p2, k2, scpo] – repeat twice.

Round 18: Remove all markers except the one that shows beginning of the round. k2, k2tog, k2, p2, k2, scpo, k1, k2tog, k2, p2, k2, scpo, k1 (the last 2 stitches will be taken from the next round).

Cut the yarn, leaving a tail. Use hook or tapestry needle to thread this tail through remaining stitches. Pull tightly to close top of hat. On wrong side weave in ends.

How can I print your patterns? I’ve tried saving as a pdf, no luck. Tried right clicking on the page and print is too narrow to see.
I do not see a “Print” feature on your pages.
Can you help me?
Thanks,
Mariette

The Ribbed beanie instructions do not work out for 110 stitches. When you get to rows 13/14 there are extra stitches that does not work out. Could you please provide more instructions for shaping the crown when you have 110 stitches.
Thanks,
Kay.

Hi Kay. The instruction is same as for 90, you are going to have more decreasing rounds to get rid off those extra side stitches. Your crown will be longer and will look even better in my opinion. Write me plz if it is still unclear. Ann

On many knitting blogs the designer has taken the trouble to make printing free patterns easier by including features that say “Print everything” and “Print Essentials Only”. This is a real help when carrying around the”Winter Warmers” projets I make yearly for distribution to the NY VA’s Homeless Veterans Program project. Won’t you please add this feature to your patterns? Thank you.
