A simple knitted beanie!

One of my many New Years resolutions (which I started over the Christmas period) is to continue making things – just because it makes me happy. ; ) I love watching movies in the evenings, but I also like keeping busy so I have started to try to find simple projects that I can do while relaxing in front of a good movie – which is easier said than done!

My first success story (and there have been a couple of fails, I have to admit) has been this simple pattern for a slouchy beanie. I have made it for my friends, I have made it for my daughters and as a present for my friend’s little twin babies. It is so easy and I love the result. The genius thing about it is that you knit it on a round needle so you never have to do anything other than a simple pearl stitch.

Do let me know if you have any other suggestions for simple projects. I would LOVE to hear!

Have you checked out Ravelry? My username is WikiNZ there too I have lots of saved patterns. TinCanKnits have great patterns too, the Simple collection is all free.
Yay for knitting!

Love the color to these beanies! Reminds me of a sweater my grandma made for me a long time ago. Good luck for future knitting!

I just managed to read this. I too started creating a lot more and I enjoy it so much. At this stage I am taking on small projects just so I finish them. Life keeps me so busy that jumpers and cardigans for my children are too long lasting and probably unfinishable project. So I made beanies and clothes for my daughters dolls, which were a huge success. Another quick an rewarding craft is weaving. I love the little artworks for the walls or on wishbone sticks. The kids paly with them and they are a pretty piece of decoration I think.
