The Pattern

The Monarch Beanie is worked up in a main and a contrasting color. It is worked from the bottom up and in the round making it an almost seamless project. A little seaming is required at the top of the hat. The hat is worked up with Lion Brand's Vanna's Choice but any worsted weight can be used to make this beanie.

This winter hat provides lots of texture starting from the ribbing at the base and textured front post double crochets in the body of the hat. This stitch gives it a very unique look.

Here is my youngest son enjoying the hat indoors. I've made beanies for my kids before but they really gravitated towards this particular hat.

Design Story

The Monarch Beanie was designed specifically for an event called the Crochet for a Cause which was hosted by Ashley of Edyth Blayn. The event was to crochet as many scarves and hats to give away to a local charity so that those in need could receive one. It was an amazing event and I feel blessed to have been a part of it.

Autumn Beanie Knit Beanie

Monday, November 25, 2019

This child size pixie style beanie is super fast to knit up and a great addition to your child’s fall and winter attire.

You may be surprised to find out that knitting was actually the first craft I learned between crochet and knit. While I've only known how to crochet for 2+ years, I've known how to knit for about 15 years.

The Autumn Beanie is my first ever knit hat design and the second hat I ever knitted in my life. Crazy, right? The reason behind this is because I look horrible in hats. It is very rare that I find a hat that compliments my face shape. Let's just say it's not one of my favorite accessories. However, my kids look super cute in them and with the cold winter ahead of us, I decided to design a hat that my kids would love.

My sassy daughter, Sophia. LOL.

This pixie hat would also look super cute in either red or green for a Christmas elf hat, don't you think?

The hat is a very basic and simple hat design; perfect for beginning knitters!

The circumference of this hat is 16” un-stretched.


This hat is worked in continuous rounds.
You can begin with circular needles and move onto DPN when it gets harder to work with the circular needles.

My son, Caleb, makes a great model. Doesn't he?

I hope that you enjoy my first knit beanie design. I have more ready to debut so keep a look out!

Happy knitting!
