Broken Rib Hat Pattern
The basic beanie shape is enhanced with a classic broken rib stitch pattern and finished with a fluffy large pom.
I made the hat using Lion Brand wool ease thick and quick in Fisherman and knit on size 10.00mm (US 15) 16″ needles.
I knit this hat on circular needles, so there was no seaming involved, just a few loose ends to sew in at the end.
Beanie Hat Pattern
The hat pattern is easy to follow, knitting in the round on 16″ 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.
If you are a beginner it will also introduce you to shaping through simple decreases.
