Cavit Knit crochet Beanie Hat

This can be a women’s beanie, a men’s beanie, or a child’s beanie. Don’t you just love diverse knit patterns? I know I do. And I think this could also be really cut with a pompom on top.

If you’ve mastered working in the round, this is a great next step on how to knit a beanie. It uses basic knit cables with easy colorwork and a ribbed brim.

  • Carry the yarn up the inside of your hat without having to cut it every time you change color.
