*EDIT – I’ve since updated this pattern, you can see the newer version of this pattern HERE.*
Recently I’ve purchased my first beanie! I know that might sound a little crazy to anyone else who lives in the Northeastern U.S., but I’ve never really been a hat person until this winter. I made the wave beanie to mimic the style of my newly purchased hat. You can wear this beanie with the ribbed bottom down for a slouchier fit (as pictured above). Or you can fold that section up for a more fitted cap like the picture below .
To create this hat, I used a variation of this stitch to give the hat some elasticity as well as a really interesting texture.
You can get the printable version of this pattern for $2.50 HERE.
Without further ado, here’s the free pattern!
