The Brills Run Beanie

This beanie is another super easy beanie, but it creates such a simple beautiful pattern. It’s basically a boring lemon peel stitch.

The fun thing too is that I’ve used two different types of yarn for this pattern and the stitch combination allows it to be pretty stretchy in both. So that’s good. And the other good thing is that it’s basically something you could while binge watching your favorite shows because it’s a simple repeat.

I’ve made these in brimless and with a brim and I love them both equally since the main portion of this beanie is based on measurements rather than specific row counts.

PATTERN NOTES

You will always join to the first stich of the round, and chain 1.

You will only use the foundation single crochet for the brimless option. You will also want to keep your foundation on the loose side so that it is able to stretch.

This pattern includes three sizes, and two sets of directions. One for brimless, and one with a brim or band.

For the brim version, You can start with any number of the chain, this depends on how thick you want your brim to be.

You can do any count of rows for the brim, but you must have an even number.
