Welcome & Happy New Year! Today’s tutorial is on the Basic Double Brimmed Beanie. I had this ready months ago but I lost one of the video files and couldn't complete my edits. Things got busy... back burner... you know how it goes! Anyway, I found that file (accidentally) so I was able to finally complete my pattern!
See below video for step-by-step instructions or visit my channel for more videos.

Instructions | Video Tutorial
Baby (Toddler, Child, Adult)
Start with a Provisional co
Co 56 (64, 70, 78), place a marker on the loop to prevent unraveling. You will come back to this marker.
Starting on the tail end of the scrap yarn:
Round 1: k all sts. Join round careful not to twist sts.
Optional 1x1 rib: *k1, p1. Rep from * around. Join round careful not to twist sts.
Continue knitting the brim until you have double the height of desired brim size.
Desired brim size: 3”
Stop knitting at: 6”
With the 2nd set of needles, transfer the sts from the provisional co over to the new needles. Start where you placed the marker.
Bring the cast on edge up (inside of the beanie) to meet your working needles. The wrongs sides will be facing each other.
Knit from both the working needle and the needle from cast on (like the 3-Needle Bind off).
Continue knitting in stockinette sts (or your 1x1 rib) until you are happy with the height of the beanie. Measure from bottom of brim.
Adjust height by increasing or decreasing number of rounds. If using the decrease option, stop a 1” before desired height. See page 1 for the standard head sizing chart.
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.
OPTIONAL Decrease Rounds
Switch to dpns when stitches are too tight on circular needles or try the Modified Magic Loop!
Round 1: *k4, k2tog. Rep from * around. k any rem sts.
Round 2: k all sts. Round 3: *k3, k2tog. Rep from * around. k any rem sts.
