Bymami is in winter wear-mode, as the cold weather invites to nothing but wooly makes, like mittens, headbands and beanies! The latest thing fresh off the hook is this smart Double Rib Beanie. It can be turned inside out for a neater look. It’s tight and warm and has two ribbed sections for a good fit. It’s super easy, fits all sizes with few alterations and only takes about an evening to make!
For this pattern I used Drops Lima from Hobbygarn, Lima is one of my favourite go-to yarns for beanies. Two colors will do, but I recommend using at least three colors. See other beautiful color combos and read more about the yarn in the box on the right. Give your beanie a pompom or use it as it is, whatever you like the most!
BEFORE YOU BEGIN
All rounds begin with a (loose) ch1 (counts as 1st stitch) and end with a slip stitch to the chain.
Post stitch: Hdc around the post of the underlying stitch from the front or back.
Sizing: If you want a smaller beanie, skip a round of increasing and possibly rnd 15. If you want a bigger and longer beanie, do an extra round of increases to (80), and possibly add an extra round of hdc’s after rnd 15.
HOW ITS MADE
In color (0519),
1: 8 hdc in a magic ring (8)
2-9: Increase using hdc’s for the next 8 rnds (16) (24) (32) (40) (48) (56) (64) (72)
10-15: Hdc in each st (72)
Change color to (3145),
16: Back post stitches (hdc) around every st (72)
17-18: Back post stitches (hdc) around every st alternating between back and front post stitches (ch at the beg of rnd counts as a back post stitch!) (36 bp hdc, 36 fp hdc)

19: Bpdc around each st (72)
20: 1 dc in each st (72)
Change color to (4088)

22-25: Back post stitches (hdc) around every st alternating between back and front post stitches (ch at the beg of rnd counts as a back post stitch!) (36 bp hdc, 36 fp hdc)
Cut yarn and fasten all ends (be careful to fasten neatly if you intend to turn the beanie inside out!).
If you want a pompom: Sew a small button to the top of the inside of the beanie for the pompom. Pull the loop of the pompom through the center of the magic ring, fasten it around the button and you’re done! Happy Hooking!
