Ribbed Slouchy Beanie (knit)

By Janet Carrillo "damn it Janet, let's crochet!"
10 year old with the adult/male size.
Folded in to fit perfectly.

      Slouchy beanies are really trendy among teenagers, as well as adults. I truly hope that this beanie grabs your attention and gets a top place in your collection of knit beanies. You can comfortably wear it during any season depending on the yarn you used and the weather, of course. This is an easy to knit beanie if you know the basics (cast on, knit, purl and slip knit past [skp]).

SIZE/MEASUREMENTS
This beanie fits someone with a head circumference of...
20.5" to 21" (child or teen),
21.5" to 22.5" (adult/women) and
23" to 24" (adult/male).

MATERIALS
*DPN's or Circular Needles: 3.5mm
*Worsted Weight Yarn: Black or any color of choice
*Stitch Markers to mark your rounds
*Tapestry Needle

GAUGE
Stretch out 21stitches x 36rows  = 4"
Don't forget to check your gauge.

PATTERN NOTES - must read...
  Numbers in ( ) at the end of each round/row indicate the total number of stitches.
  Always use stitch markers to mark your rounds.
  You're able to easily customize the beanie by casting on multiples of 6.



STARTING the BEANIE
CO 114 stitches with the 3.5mm needles (114sts)
Place a marker and join in the round, being careful not to twist the stitches.
  Rnd 1: *k3, p3*, repeat from * to * all around (114sts)
  Rnd 2 - ?: repeat round 1 for (child or teen: 80 rnds), (adult/women: 90 rnds) & (adult/men: 110 rnds) or 'til you have reach the desire length.

SHAPING the CROWN
There's several ways to decrease, check this VIDEO out on how to.
  Rnd 1: k2tog repeat around (57sts)
  Rnd 2: knit around (57sts)
  Rnd 3: k2tog repeat around, knit in last st (29sts)
  Rnd 4: knit around (29sts)
  Rnd 5: k2tog repeat around, knit in last st (15sts)
If you cast on a bigger or smaller number of stitches in the beginning, then you will get a bigger or smaller numbers of stitches on needles after decreasing. In case you get more than 20 stitches on your needles - repeat round 4 and 5.
When you finish round 5, leave a long tail (up to 8"). Next, you will use a hook or a tapestry needle to thread the tail through the last remaining stitches on your needles. After that remove the needles from the stitches and pull tightly to close the top hole. Lastly, hide the tail inside of the hat and weave it in.

OPTIONAL...
You can add a pom-pom on the top of the beanie.
You will find this video very useful on how to make a pom-pom using the pom-pom maker.
