My husband and son love their beanies in winter. But to both of them, a beanie is not a fashion item. They couldn’t care for slouchy hats. They pull the hat all the way down onto their heads, and fold it over. No stitch pattern other than ribbing works for these two men in my life. At least, when they fold ribbing over, it doesn’t look bad! This little beanie is so easy to knit, and the crown decreases result in a gorgeous design!
Being a grandmother, I decided to extend this pattern to accommodate the grandkids as well. They grow so fast. At least with a stretchy, fold-over hat, they will be able to wear it much longer! So here is The Family Hat Collection! You have four sizes to choose from: Man, Woman / Teen, Child and Baby.
