How to Knit Beanies for Beginners

A beanie is a great knit cap that is typically worn in cold weather. It is often made from wool or acrylic yarn. Beanies can be decorated with a pom-pom, stripes, or other patterns.

Whether you’re looking for a cozy hat to keep you warm in the winter, or a stylish and fashionable beanie to wear year-round, there’s sure to be a knitted beanie that’s perfect for you! Some of the most popular types include:

  • Slouchy beanie: These beanies are perfect for those who want a relaxed and comfortable fit. They’re often made with slouchy stitches, such as the knit stitch, and have a loose and draping fit. See our product for a slouchy beanie: Beanie For Men & Women – SKU: YORKN22403

The Best Hat Is The Cherry on Top of Your Fits

The first thing you need to do is measure your head. Wrap a measuring tape around your head, and make sure it’s snug but not too tight. Then, add about two inches to that measurement. This will be the width of your beanie. Next, you’ll need to calculate the length of your beanie. To do this, measure from the center of your forehead to the base of your skull. Again, add about two inches to that measurement. This will be the length of your beanie. Now that you have your measurements, it’s time to gather your supplies.

What You Need to Knit a Beanie

Things You’ll Need:

  • Yarn
  • Needles (circular or double-pointed)
  • Measuring tape
  • Scissors
  • Tapestry needle

Ready to make one? Let’s get started!

For this project, you’ll need yarn and needles. You can use any type of yarn, but we recommend using a worsted weight yarn. As for needles, you can use either circular or double-pointed needles. If you’re using circular needles, make sure they’re the right size for your thread.

If you’re a beginner knitter, we recommend using double-pointed needles. They may seem a bit tricky at first, but they’re really not that difficult to use. And once you get the hang of them, you’ll be able to sew just about anything!

Step by Step on How to Knit A Beanie

  • Cast On Your Stitches
  • Start Knitting
  • Start Decreasing Your Stitches
  • Break The Yarn
  • Weave In Your Ends

Cast On Your Stitches

Once you have your supplies, it’s time to cast on your stitches. For this project, you’ll need to cast on 48 stitches. To do this, make a slip knot and place it on one of your needles. Then, hold the needle with the slip knot in your left hand and the other needle in your right hand. Insert the needle in your right hand into the stitch on the needle in your left hand, and wrap the thread around the needle. Now, pull the yarn through the stitch and off of the left needle. You’ve now cast one stitch onto your right-hand needle! Repeat this process until you have 48 stitches on your needles.

Start Knitting

Now that you’ve cast on your stitches, it’s time to start knitting! The stitch you’ll be using for this project is the knit stitch. To do a knit stitch, hold your needles in your left hand with the working yarn (the thread that’s attached to the ball) in front of the needle. Insert the needle in your right hand into the first stitch on the needle in your left hand. Wrap the thread around the needle, and then pull the yarn through the stitch. You’ve now completed one knit stitch! Repeat this process until you reach the end of the row.

When you reach the end of the row, it’s time to turn in your work. To do this, simply slide your stitches to the other end of the needle, and then turn your work so that the needle in your left hand is now in your right hand. You’re now ready to start knitting the next row!

Keep knitting until your piece measures about six inches from the cast-on edge. Then, it’s time to start decreasing our stitches.

Start Decreasing Your Stitches

To decrease stitches, you’ll use the knit two-together stitch. To do this, insert your needle into the first two stitches on your left-hand needle. Wrap the yarn around the needle, and then pull the yarn through both stitches. You’ve now decreased one stitch! Repeat this process until you have 24 stitches on your needles.

Now, you’ll need to sew every stitch until you have 12 stitches remaining. Then, it’s time to break the yarn and weave in your ends.

Break The Yarn

To break the yarn, cut the working yarn, leaving a long tail. Then, thread the tail onto a tapestry needle. Insert the needle through the remaining stitches on the needle, and then pull the yarn through. Now, remove the needle and pull the yarn tight. You’ve now break the yarn and weave in your ends!

Weave In Your Ends

To weave in your ends, thread the tail onto a tapestry needle and insert it into the wrong side of your knitting. Then, weave the tail in and out of the stitches, making sure to secure it at the beginning and end. Once you’re done, trim the excess yarn, stretch knitting in the round and voila! You have completed and knitted your new hat!

In conclusion, the best way to avoid mistakes when knitting, it is to follow a step-by-step guide. This will ensure that it will turn out perfect every time! You do not have to shop anymore instead you can create your custom knit hat and add in a logo. And if you need any help along the way, don’t hesitate to reach out to us in the comments section below.
