Today's tutorial is on the Knit Doran Pebbles Beanie. I designed this beanie during our recent camping trip to celebrate my son's 8th birthday! I always pack waaaay more yarn than I need (in case) lol.
I'm not sure why or how I came up with this idea but I wanted a chunky beanie since it was cool in the coast... much cooler than summer at home!
This free pattern is for a slouchy adult size. To purchase an ad-free pdf pattern available in Baby (Toddler, Child, Adult), please visit any of my shops. The pdf pattern is for a fitted or slouch beanie.
Super Bulky Yarn - Lion Brand's Wool Ease Thick and Quick, 106 yards. Click on below photo to purchase.
9mm & 10mm Circular Needles (16") - I use Hiya Hiya Interchangeable Needles
10mm Double Pointed Needles or try the Modified Magic Loop Method!
Stitch Marker (make your own stitch marker!)
co – Cast on
st(s) – Stitch(es)
k – Knit
p – Purl
rep – Repeat
k2tog – Knit 2 sts together
LH – Left Hand | RH – Right
m1 – Make one (increase) – With right needle, pick up horizontal bar between 2 sts and place it on left needle. Knit st in the back loop.
Special Stitch: Little Leaves (see video below)
*From the 3rd st on LH needle, insert RH needle in 4th st 4 rows below, draw up a long loop, place loop on LH needle, yarn over. Repeat from * 2 more times, skipping last yarn over st. Knit 4 sts through back loops. Pass the yarn over sts over the just knitted stitch.
Co 42 and add stitch marker and join careful not to twist sts. (I use the invisible joining method which requires 1 additional st)
BRIM | US13/9mm Needles
k1, p1 around for 4 (5, 6, 7) rounds or as tall as you’d like.
BEANIE | US15/10mm Needles
Set up Round: [k21, m1} twice (44 sts).
Rounds 1-5: knit all sts
Round 6: *k4, leaf stitch (see special st or below video). Rep from * around.
Note: The last leaf stitch will be worked into a st in the new round.
Repeat Rounds 1 & 6 until you have 5 leaf rows for the SLOUCH beanie. End after round 6. Knit more rounds if you want it slouchier.
Decrease Rounds – Switch to dpns when stitches are too tight or use magic loop method.
Round 1: knit all sts
Round 2: k1, k2tog, *k3, k2tog. Rep from * around.
Round 3: knit all sts
Round 4: k1, k2tog, *k2, k2tog. Rep from * around. End with k1.
Round 5: *k1, k2tog. Rep from * around. End with k1.
Complete round 6 decrease if you still have too many sts on needles.
Round 6: k2tog around.
Cut yarn leaving long tail. Using a tapestry needle, weave through remaining stitches as if to knit and pull tight. Secure and weave in all ends.
Add a pom to finish it off!
See Yarn Pom Pom video below or Make a FAUX FUR POM!
