Item details

Very versatile, simple rib beanie knitting instructions - make it long, short, skull cap fitted or slouchy. Add a pom pom or even two for fun for kids or big kids alike. Perfect for the hair challenged among us to keep a delicate head warm or for anyone with with flowing tresses as a simple fashionable accessory.


I made this for my no-fuss husband and son - hubby likes less height, more of a practical skull cap, my teenage son likes it more modern and slouchy. Folically challenged men find it very practical and easy to wear to keep waering through the day and at work. I also made one for myself with a large fur pom pom on. Put two pom poms on and you have bear ears, or Mickey and Minnie Mouse ears. As a nurse working in assisted living and long term care, and this makes a great sleeping beanie caps for residents to keep warm for chilly nights and fragile hair.

Pattern calls for sport weight / DK yarn - makes a light/medium weight finish, with plenty of warmth for mild/cool temperatures. Make it in cotton/linen for warm weather options. Choose alpaca or wool fibers for cold weather conditions.
