Gym Sock Beanie Hat
This easy to knit, super versatile and fashion-forward beanie reminds me of a vintage striped gym sock because of its ribs and bands of stripes. It’s knit in the round on circular needles so there’s no additional seaming required at the end.
The hat will fit head sizes from 21” to 24” and is very stretchy due to the yarn used. The height of the hat is about 8” but instructions are included in the pattern if you need to make it longer, particularly if you’re knitting it for someone who has a larger head size.
I used Malabrigo Worsted Merino Wool yarn to make the hats with. This yarn is very soft, pliable and naturally stretchy. You also get a lot of yarn per skein so you could end up making a couple of hats with just one. You’ll also want to use additional yarn to make the stripes with of course.
The colors Sauterne and Ravelry Red were used to make the yellow hat and the colors SFO Sky and Sauterne were used to make the gray multi-colored hat.
