An easy, make-it-up-as-you-go beanie for everyone’s head, ideal for last minute holiday or charity knitting. It uses less than a single 100g ball of worsted weight yarn, and takes little knitting attention commitment.

This is really a recipe more than a pattern; it uses multiples of 8 in the cast on and basic kN + ssk decreases at the crown. The recipe is written for an 80 stitch cast on for a woman’s medium on size 7 needles (with size 5 for tight ribbing); your mileage may vary. Cast on, swatch, and figure out the best recipe for your yarn and your head size. Happy knitting!
