Classroom: Ribbed Beanie & Handwarmers Pattern

Classroom: Ribbed Beanie & Handwarmers Pattern

“Learn to knit in the round.”

This Churchmouse Classroom First Projects pattern will teach you to work in the round using two different methods. For the beanie, you’ll begin with a short circular needle. As you begin to decrease for the crown, you will need to change to double-point needles—great practice for the stylish handwarmers! Ribbing is very stretchy, so sizing your beanie is quite forgiving.

PHOTO TUTORIALS IN THIS PATTERN: • Decreasing a stitch. • Joining in the round. • ‘Buttonhole’ thumb opening.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: the cable cast-on method, the knit stitch, the purl stitch, combining knits & purls, binding off in pattern, and weaving in tails. Need help with any of these techniques? See our Learn-To-Knit Companion booklet.

NEEDLES & NOTIONS
Beanie: US 7 (4.5mm) 16"/40cm circular needles and double-points, or size needed to obtain gauge.
Handwarmers: US 5 (3.75mm) 7½"/19cm (or longer) double- pointed needles, or size needed to obtain gauge. Note: Handwarmers are knit on smaller needles for a slightly denser fabric.
Stitch marker (beanie only).
Blunt darning needle to finish.

GAUGE
Beanie: Approx. 26 sts/30 rounds = 4"/10cm in K2/P2 ribbing, not stretched.
Handwarmers: Approx. 28 sts/32 rounds = 4"/10cm in K2/P2 ribbing, not stretched.

Ribbing is very stretchy, so sizing your beanie is quite forgiving. As ribbing stretches around it shortens a little in length, so for an extra large hat, you can add a few rounds instead of adding more stitches. What could be simpler?
