Free Pattern Friday: Easy Double Brim Knit Beanie

Happy Friday everyone! While the weather is starting to get cooler here in Connecticut, it seems like this girl has nothing but beanies on the brain!


As I mentioned in my Mommy & Me Beanie Set post, one of the knitting techniques I've been working on the most this year has been getting my stitch sizing and speed down. I'm finally starting to readjust the way I hold the yarn when knitting, focusing more on moving the yarn with my fingers rather than my entire hand (and giving my wrists a much needed break).


While I've been creating knit beanies with a fold over brim for a little bit now, I decided to take a crack at a double brim beanie. I don't know about you, but it seems like recently these double brim beauties are plastered all over every social media account I follow. Not only do they offer a cleaner look to a fold over brim beanie, but they're technically easier and faster to make since you're only working with knitting stitches- no purling to create the brim detail.



While the specific beanie I'm sharing today is a dual-tone pattern, the color combination possibilities are really endless. I've seen many beautiful designs that incorporate a thin, neutral colored strand to separate the dual tones, as well as varying heights where the two colors actually come together (either closer to where the brim connects or higher up towards the pom pom). Regardless, this is definitely one of those patterns where you can play around and try a couple different designs, and maybe even incorporate some contrasting detail stitches!


Well enough talk, keep on scrolling for the free pattern!

Knit Double Brim Beanie


Materials

2 skeins weight 4 yarn DOUBLED (2 strands of same color at once- I used Red Heart Super Saver in "Frost Green" and "White")

Faux Fur Pom Pom

Scissors

*Crochet hook (optional but very useful for finishing)


Needles

Circular needles- size 13 (9.00mm)

Terms

K1 = knit 1

k2tog = knit 2 together (decrease)

F/O = finish off *refer to notes section for my finishing technique*


Gauge

(Width) 3 stitches = ~ 1 inch

(height) 4 rows = ~ 1 inch

Notes

>While the actual gauge listed above is 3 stitches per 1", for the cleanest decreasing section cast on stitches work best in multiples of 4.

>Finishing Technique:

1. Once your last decreasing row is less than 10 stitches, using your working needle (stitch closest to tip has yarn tail from skein attached) slip off the 1st 2 stitches & pull the loop from the 1st stitch (has tail attached) through the 2nd loop to the right (crochet hooks help best for this).

2. Continue this technique (slip off loop & pull 1st stitch with tail through) until you reach the end.

3. Once the last loop has been worked, you should be left with the original 1st loop & the yarn tail. Pull the tail through the loop & pull tail tight to create a knot & pull all stitches together. Pull tail through loop 1 more time to secure & cut (leaving a couple inches to pull through to the inside of the hat).



Adult Beanie Pattern


(Color 1: Frost Green)

1. Cast-On 56 stitches. Join circle with K1 in 1st stitch. Continue to K1 in each stitch until end of row.

2. Continue this pattern (K1 in each) until you have a total of 24 rows completed


3. *Creating the double brim* Tuck the bottom edge of the brim section towards the inside of the beanie and line up the cast on edge behind your working row (use the tail/slip knot as a guide).


4. To connect the edges, K1 by first inserting the needle into the working row stitch, then the cast on row stitch and complete as normal through both loops. Repeat in each stitch for the rest of the row until both rows are completely connected.


5. Starting off from the last K1 stitch of the double brim section, K1 in each stitch until the end of the row. Continue this pattern (K1 in each) for 7 more rows (8 total).


*Switch to Color 2: White*

6. Continue the same pattern from step 5 (K1 in each) with the 2nd color for 8 rows. Should have 16 rows total from where the double brim section ended.

Decrease rows:

7. *K1, K1, k2tog (decrease)*. Continue this pattern until you reach the end of the row (should end with k2tog). (42 stitches)


8. K1 in each stitch until you reach the end of the row (42)

9. *K1, K2tog*. Continue this pattern until you reach the end of the row (should end with K2tog) (28 stitches)
