This easy to make ribbed and textured unisex beanie hat is knit in the round on circular needles to eliminate seaming in the final step. It features a rounded beehive shape with a pop of color at the crown, although it can also be made in just one solid color too.

One skein of Berroco Vintage yarn in the color Chana Dal and about a quarter of a skein in the color Gingham was used to make the two-tone hat shown in the photos.

The solid color hat uses one skein of Malabrigo Rios yarn in the colorway VAA. You can use any worsted weight yarn you wish to make the hat. You’ll need about 175 to 200 yards of it (collectively if using an additional color for the crown).
