This adorable kids beanie hat pattern is the perfect pattern for a beginner knitter.
The simple beanie hat is a basic hat your little one will love wearing almost as much as you’ll love seeing him or her in it.
You can easily make it using any super bulky yarn of your choice, I used Yarn Art Alpine Alpaca, which is really soft but you could also substitute it with any yarn, including Lion Brands Wool-Ease Thick and Quick.

Kids Hat Knitting Pattern
The kid’s hat pattern is easy to follow, knitting in the round on circular needles, you could knit this hat on DPN’s if it is your preference.
The hat uses basic stitches – knit and purl, to knit ribbing and then for the main body of the hat.
I made the hat with super bulky yarn 06, which knits up fast! You can complete this hat in one movie.
