Simply Spring Beanies are the quintessential hat for any age. Perfect for the Spring and Summer, they keep your head cool and the wind out. I designed this hat for my husband to wear while working out, but found it was great to keep my little sons bangs out of his eyes too. Knit seamlessly in the round, from the top down, lifted increases are used for a smooth transition with a twisted ribbed band to help keep the hat in place. The beanie is meant to cover the ears halfway and an allowance is made for shrinkage. Directions are given for optional striping pattern. Seven sizes included to fit preemie up to adult male.

I was 4 when my grandmother taught me to knit. I have since enjoyed all sorts of needle work; crochet, cross stitch, needlepoint, quilting. However, my love is knitting and designing seamless and classic garments for children :)
