Put on a little Skater or Snowboard Chic! Whether you are heading to the slopes, or just downtown, the versatile Brock Beanie will be the perfect complement to your outfit.
Slouchy or snug, long or short, this beanie (or "toque", as we say in Canada) looks fabulous on guys and gals alike. The farrow rib makes it super-stretchy, and raglan shaping at the top keeps the ribbing going straight to the peak! (No swirls around the crown.) Instructions are included to make the slouch permanent by sewing in a tuck at the back (modelled by Steven in the images.)
Knit in an aran-weight yarn, this textured hat is one you will reach for time and again!
BONUS: The PDF download includes a photo tutorial on the super-stretchy cast-on.
Skill level: Easy
Sizes: Small (17 1/2" head, or about a 24 mo. size) to Extra Large (23" head or larger)
Style variations in pattern: Short, "Dome-Top" beanie; Long, slouchy beanie (can be folded up at brim for a more classic look); Long, "tucked" slouchy beanie.
20 sts and 28 rws = 4" over stockinette stitch
I have been "crafting" ever since I was little, with plenty of help from two very artistic grandmothers and a mom who taught me to sew at the age of nine. I haven't looked back, and now I sew, knit, (and design in both mediums), crochet (although it's not my favourite), scrapbook, paint, and cook! (Cooking can be a craft, right?)
