Perhaps like many new knitters, the first item of clothing I made for myself was a beanie. A simple beanie is a great “palate cleanser” and a simple way to use up a spare ball of yarn you love, but don’t have enough of for a larger project.
Made from a worsted weight blend of hemp and cotton, the Buddy Hat is my perfect summer head covering, breathable, light and stylish enough to distract from the messy hair beneath.
This pattern is worked bottom-up and is “one size”, but provides a simple chart for deciding the number of stitches to cast-on for different head circumferences.
