The Croft House Beanie is worked from the bottom up in the round. It begins with a K2, P2 garter ribbing, then the body is worked in stockinette stitch. The entire hat is worked on the same size needle, but you can opt to work the ribbing on one needle size smaller. Decreases are worked to shape the crown. Switch to double pointed needles (dpns) when the work no longer fits comfortably around your 16” circular.
