Lace Beanie

Lion Brand® Cotton-Ease®


17 sts + 24 rows=4 in. [10cm] in Stockinette st worked in the round (knit all rnds). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


K2, p2 Ribbing (worked in the round)
Rnd 1:
*K2, p2; rep from * around.
Rnd 2: K the knit sts and p the purl sts.
Rep Rnd 2 for k2, p2 Ribbing

Beginning at crown, cast 6 sts onto 1 double pointed needle.
K into front and then back of each st (increase made) – 12 sts. Divide sts onto 3 needles. Join, being careful not to twist sts. Place marker for beginning of rnd.
Rnd 1: Knit.
Rnd 2: *K1, k into front and then back of next st; rep from * around - 18 sts.
Rnd 3: Knit.
Rnd 4: *K2, k into front and then back of next st; rep from * around - 24 sts.
Rnd 5: Knit.
Rnd 6: *K3, k into front and then back of next st; rep from * around - 30 sts.
Continue in this manner to increase on every other rnd, having 1 more st between increases, until you have a total of 90 sts.
Next Rnd: K, decrease 2 sts evenly spaced around – 88 sts.

Lace Beanie Reviewed by Heather Nicely on 2015-05-28 ****
Like others who've tried this pattern, I switched to a 16" needle when I reached 72 sts. so I wouldn't have to deal with sts. falling off the ends of dp's. When I did the ribbing with #8 needles it was much too limp & wouldn't have fit a chemo patient comfortably. I re-did the ribbing with a #6 needle & it was better. Although I like Cotton-Ease yarn I found it rather "listless" for this pattern w/o the stretchiness that a design like this really needs.
