Free Pattern: Quick & Easy Beanie

Both my brothers requested an easy hat last year for Christmas. I looked online and couldn't find one exactly how they wanted. So I decided to come up with my own, specific to what they wanted.

Worsted weight yarn
Size 8 16" circulars
stitch marker
tapestry needle

CO 80 sts. Knit in 2x2 rib for 2".
Switch to stockinette knitting. Knit for 5.5"

Begin decreases.
row 1: k8, k2tog
row 2: knit

Continue these two rows, knitting one less before the k2tog each time. When you are done, you should have 6 sts remaining. Cut yarn and pull through. Weave in ends and enjoy!

I've been able to make one of these hats in an evening. It's a very nice knit to do when you're sitting down to watch TV or a movie. :)
