I can’t count the number of times I’ve finished up a project and been left with just enough worsted weight yarn to make….absolutely nothing.

It’s times like those that I’m always wishing I had a super great, super simple worsted weight hat pattern to whip out with my leftovers. So I’ve finally decided to make that pattern a reality!

The Basic Worsted Beanie Pattern is one you’ll return to again and again. The pattern includes instructions for creating a beautiful scalloped edge to make a more girly version, and instructions for creating the more traditional ribbed edge to create a more unisex or masculine version.

Make it with stripes to use up that left over yarn, or as one solid color - the pattern includes detailed instructions for whichever you choose.

If you’re not comfortable working in the round, then make this beanie on Straight Needles. I’ve included a seamless version worked in the round on Double Pointed Needles as well as a version worked flat and seamed. You choose the best option for you!
