Pattern details

This beanie works from bottom up with the ribbed brim. And two short sides join together to make a band first. The body of the hat works on the long side of the ribbed band using Bavarian stitch in round.

This pattern available in teen size but can be adjusted to any size, see the note section. I used Red Heart Super Saver in Dusty Gray but you can use any worsted weight yarn in any color you prefer.
