This is a pattern/tutorial for simple 1x1 ribbed beanie knitted top-down.
I had some yarn left over from the Cerus scarf project and I decided to create a matching beanie from the remaining yarn. I had no idea how big the hat would be from the remaining yarn or how many stitches I should cast on. I decided to start from the top of the head and increase until I got the right width and then knit until the yarn finished. I started off on four double point needles and as the hat grew I switched to circular needles. Doing this, it is very easy to try the hat for fit during knitting and to see if it still needs to be increased or not. And no more left over or shortage of yarn :)
