I recently finished Hiroko Fukatsu’s “Hitofude Cardigan” and had about half a skein leftover (>200 yds).

I decided to create a beanie that would match with her design, and that I could wear with my new cardigan.

The total yardage used is my best estimate. It could be a little less than 190 yds, but not by much. If you want a longer beanie, in more of a slouch style, simply add additional pattern rows (in multiples of 8) before you start the decrease rounds. Just add additional yardage.

Though I used two 16” circulars in US #2 and #4, you could opt for a longer circular and use the Magic Loop technique. You will also need US #4 DPNs and at least one stitch marker, and yarn needle.

Gauge is not too important in the body of the work, but try to stay close to 4 stitches per inch in the ribbing, and use an elastic CO technique. Because there are so many stitches in the ribbing on the #2 circular, the garment is quite stretchy.
