The Bluster Beanie is my version of the basic broken rib beanie knitting pattern. I'm pleased to say its a pretty great version! The pattern is written for three sizes and calls for only three different stitches. It features an invisible brim to prevent that annoying bell shape beanies can take on over time. The Bluster Beanie knits up fast in bulky weight yarn and will quickly become a go-to project for gift knitting and instant gratification.

🌈 U S 8/5mm needles or one sizes smaller than that needed to obtain gauge (for your favorite method of going in the round, see note: In Regards To Working In The Round below)
🌈 US 9/5.5mm needles or size needed to obtain gauge (for your favorite method of going in the round, see note: In Regards To Working In The Round below)

🌈Darning needle



Size 1, (2, 3) 18in (20in, 22in)/ 46cm (51cm, 56cm) head circumference


In Regards to Working in the Round:

Knitting a hat requires a wide range of circumferences to accommodate the body of the hat and the crown as it decreases. This means it is helpful to either have lots of different length needles, use the magic loop method of going in the round, or use double pointed needles. The pattern assumes the maker will use their favorite method, changing needle styles when and if needed.
