 Printed Pattern

Get creative with your yarn stash and knit up a cozy, versatile beanie with the Broken Rib beanie pattern. With instructions for four different yarn weights and three head sizes for each weight, this pattern is perfect for any knitter looking to use up their leftover yarn. The broken rib stitch creates a classic, ribbed look, and the fold-up brim can be worn two ways for added slouch or a more fitted look.

Designed to be worn with up to 5cm of negative ease, this relaxed-fit beanie is slightly slouchy, with a length 2.5cm longer than your natural head height. However, you can easily adjust the length for a more fitted crown if you prefer. This is your hat, after all!

I recommend 100% wool or a wool blend for stitch definition and warmth.
