Darning needle to weave in ends and attach pom pom


Using 8.00 mm need – circular or double pointed cast on 48 stitches and join in the round, taking care not to twist the stitches.  Place marker to note the start of the round.

Knit for 26 rows – or until desired length

If you like extra slouch in your beanie you can add another 4 rows

Cut yarn leaving a 30 cm tail. Using a darning needle, weave the tail through the remaining stitches.  Pull yarn tight to close the top of the hat.  Weave in ends and you're done!

Note, if using a short circular needle you may need to change to double pointed needles during the decrease rows.
