The Breah beanie was inspired by my love for quick, easy and simple projects. As we’re getting closer to the Holiday season I find myself needing more gifts for friends and family. I obviously don’t have enough time to make them a big blanket or sweater, so I always end up resorting to a beanie. The Breah Beanie is the perfect addition to your quick gift projects!

If you’v’e made my Woodland Beanie, the Breah Beanie was inspired by the construction of this hat. Using a 2 row repeat and a few short seams, you can make yourself this slouchy hat in no time!

The yarn I ended up using for this design was I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby. The perfect acrylic yarn that in so soft you wouldn’t believe its actually acrylic!

Notes:

Beanie is length wise to create the circumference.

Fits slouchy on the average women’s 21” head circumference.

Chain two does not count as a stitch.

Step 2 - Seam using your preferred method (I use the slip stitch) the last row to the foundation row.

Step 3 - Cut a 7-10” tail, weave the tail in and out throughout the to tube opening.

Step 4 - Once you have gone around the tube, pull tail tight to cinch the top. Weave end in and out throughout the cinched hold. Fasten off.
