Free flower beanie knitting pattern that looks like art

Clothing, Knitting Patterns

This free flower beanie knitting pattern is worked in the round. You’ll knit it from the top down, so that the entire time you’ll be making this, you’ll be smiling at that lovely center flower motif. Isn’t it cute?

Tip: You’ll need a DK yarn for this project, but I urge you to choose one with a clear yarn definition so that the motif will show off nicely.

The beanie knitting pattern will work in cotton, wool or acrylic for baby sizes, and wool or wool blend for larger sizes. Only basic skills are required for this simple hat design. But, you can opt your game also as Designer Ewelina Murach has matching cardigan knitting patterns. That is, if you are inclined to create an outfit with this flower motif. Why not? Cardigans are a bit more work than your average beanie, but also more useful.

When you think of matching or pairing, you can think ‘family members’ also? Make one in red for daughter 1 and blue and green for a son 2? I think it will be fun to have a hat like this for me and my daughter.

The pattern comes in all sizes, so why not make a couple. I find that the second time I make a pattern, it is always easier (hint: this is why I like things like sleep socks, yoga socks and the likes..)
