After I learned to make the purl stitch, use circular needles and make my own design you know me. I had to learn how to decrease and 1×1. Well as you can guess that’s what making this easy knit hat was all about of course! Hehe! 😊 The thing is, I did not realize how easy it actually was.

How did I make it?
So I found the Simple Chunky Knit Beanie pattern by WarmLinX on Craftsy for free. I used 9mm clover circular needle, and Lion Brand Fishermans in worsted #4 weight yarn. The pattern was actually really fun to make and super simple to understand. I just took learning to make one thing at a time. Since this pattern works from the bottom up, I learned to make 1×1 first then I always knew the stitch for the hat. Then I learnt how to decrease after that. It sounds overwhelming, but it actually wasn’t because I only focused on what I was learning that second and told myself I would tackle the next one when I got to it. And guess what? I did and since I did it, I know you can too!
Let's Stay In Touch
Are you going to try this pattern too? I’m hoping I convinced you cause this really was a fun pattern to make. I would say a beginner could make it even though it looks like a daunting task. Let me know if you end up making it and if you enjoyed making it too! 😊💙
