Double Thick Beanies

My brother lives in Alaska, where it can get into the negatives. So I made him a nice, thick beanie.

I loved it so much, I knit one for myself.

They’re nice and warm, snug without feeling a little squeezy like hats sometime can.


Ooooh nice! I wish we had more cold weather over here. I want to wear more hats!

They look nice and warm. No gaps for the cold air to get in!

These look so amazingly squishy and warm!
What size of yarn did you use for these?

Those look so warm! Did you use a pattern?

They DO look so warm and cozy! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: Such lovely work and such a thoughtful gift! Glad you made something for yourself too!!. Not enough of us do that :slight_smile:


@Mountains_and_Clouds Yeah, not a ton of beanie weather over there, is there? :smile: Maybe you could handle a cotton hat every so often?

@mellybelly81 I’m crossing my fingers it will stand up to the Alaska weather. :crossed_fingers:

@Abbeeroad Thank you!

Worsted. I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease.

With US6 needles, I used a magic circle (as you might use for a top-down hat), increased every other row to 96, knit knit knit, decrease like usual, fold it into itself.

So true.


Thank you! :smiley:

Happy to help!

Such great skills! it doesn’t even look hand made, and they are really thick :smiley: I’m sure it will keep his head all nice and warm
