Sharing buttons:

hello everyone

today I'm going to show you how to knit

it is super easy and super cute head

it's a great pattern for beginners if

you know how to purl and how to knit you

can do this hat it's really really easy

I will show you step-by-step how to knit

this beautiful and easy head and now I

will show you what we need today I'm

using a 10 millimeter 16 inch knitting

needle we will also need a pair of

scissors in your needle a marker and I'm

using a round counter just to make sure

I know which round I'm after this is of

course optional this is a great for

beginners is from clover but you don't

have to use it it's just mix it's easier

if you don't know exactly which round

you add and the yarn I'm using today is

line brand wool-ease thick & quick and

they have those in so many different

beautiful colors this is a size 6 yarn

super bulky and a recommended needle is

a 9 millimeter but we will be using a 10

millimeters and now let's get started

with casting on our stitches the first

thing I did is measured about 60 inches

this is what we're going to need to test

on our stitches and here's our yarn now

and we can start testing on so what I'm

going to do is just make a loop like

this put my needle through now I will go

with my thumb to the right side here and

I will grab my thumb and go from the

left to the right just like this and we

have a loop around our thumb now I will

use my index finger and just go from the

bottom to top just like that and now we

are holding the yarn with our fingers

here and we can start casting on so I

will go from and

the loop on my thumb but I'm holding the

yarn here with my index finger and now

I'll go from the top to the bottom like

that and through the loop and let it go

and pull tight and we will repeat this

for total of 40 stitches so again with

the thumb from the left to the right

hold it and with your index finger from

bottom to top just like that and now

again you will go under over all the way

through let go and pull tight and we

need to cast on a total of 40 stitches

and I will see you back at the end of

this row so just cast on 40 stitches

I just finished casting on my 40

stitches just make sure the stitches are

not twisted and now we can start

connecting both sides so we can work in

the round so I will push those stitches

up just like that and now grab both

strings of yarn like that and work one

knit stitch so in the very first stitch

insert your needle grab the yarn go

around under and take off and now we

connected both sides just grab your

stitch marker lay it on the right needle

and now we can start working in the

round

we will start our first round what I

just wanted to mention is that I'm

holding my yarn in the right hand I'm

working the English style but of course

if you use the continental style this is

where you hold the yarn in your left

hand this is totally fine to the

stitches stay the same but just that you

know that I'm working the English style

so let's get started the first stitch we

are going to do is a purl stitch so take

the yarn to the front just like that

insert your needle from the right to the

left through the stitch yarn over and

pull through and take off the next

stitch is a knit stitch so take the yarn

to the back normally you would worked in

its stitch like this but we will work in

the back loop only it's super easy to

you just go in the back loop just like

this grab the yarn yarn over and finish

your knit stitch and now again a

prestige so the yarn back to the front

making it a pro stitch and again the

next stitch is a knit stitch in the back

loop only just like this and we will

repeat this all the way around until you

reach your stitch marker so one purl

stitch one knit stitch in the back loop

only all the way around and I will see

you back as soon as we hit our stitch

marker

and here at the end of my round we have

two stitches left but what I wanted to

show you it's really important that we

don't work to single stitches we

connected in the round with two strands

of yarn and those are the two strings of

yarn so don't increase while we are

going to do we are just going to make a

knit stitch through the two stitches so

just like this you will work a normal

knit stitch so from the left to the

right we have both loops on the needle

yarn over and just work a normal knit

stitch and now you can see we just have

one loop and the next rounds we don't

have to watch out for anything we just

keep knitting

the next row is just a repeat of the

first row which is super super easy like

you can see I will show you how the

pearls look like and how the knit

stitches look like the pearls have a

little bumpy on the front and the knit

stitches have a little V that's how you

know which ones are your pearls and

which ones are your knit stitches so the

little pearl here the little bump

it's a purl stitch and the little V next

to it is a knit stitch so when you have

a purl stitch you will work a purl

stitch where you have a knit stitch we

will work the knit stitch in the back

loop only so the first stage it's a

prostate so work a purl stitch and the

next stitch is a little V so we will

work a knit stitch in the back loop only

so just like that work your knit stitch

and again a purl stitch and a knit

stitch in the back loop only we will

repeat this round in total of six rounds

this is round two so you will have to

finish this one and four more row rounds

and we will be done with our brim but

you will repeat this all the way around

just a purl stitch and a knit stitch in

the back loop only and I will see you

back in just a moment

I just finished my six rounds with

pearls and knit stitches and this is how

my brim looks like now it's going to be

super super easy the stitch pattern we

will be using is a three round repeat

but it's super super easy what we are

going to do now for the first round it's

just work a normal knit stitch so super

super easy it's just one knit stitch all

the way around so just like that work

your knit stitch into the next stitch

also knit stitch and we will repeat this

all the way around it's super chill now

so all you have to do is just keep

knitting all the way around until you

reach your stitch marker and I will see

you back in just a second so just one

knit stitch all the way around

I'm here almost at the end of my first

round and all we did was knit stitches

now grab the stitch marker put it on

your right needle and now we will start

the second round like I said it's a

three round repeat so for the second

round we're going to do the same thing

so Row one is knit one all the way

around and Row two is the same so just

one knit stitch all the way around it's

so easy and so much fun to knit so just

knit all the way around in every stitch

one knit stitch and I will see you back

once you reach your stitch marker

I just finished my second round and now

we will start the third round the third

round is also super super easy what we

are going to do we will knit 1 purl 1

knit 1 purl 1 and you will repeat this

all the way around so the first stitch

will always be a knit stitch the second

one across stitch and that's all we have

to do all the way around so a mid stitch

pro one knit one repeaters all the way

around and this is your third round so

knit one purl one knit one and purl one

and I will see you back in just a moment

I'm here at the end of my third round

and this is our three round repeat so

it's the first round is knit one all the

way around the second round we will do

the same so just a knit stitch all the

way around and the third round is knit

one purl one and knit one purl one and

we are now at round 9 the first six

rounds worked with the brim and then

three more rounds for the pattern itself

so we are at round nine and we will

repeat those three rows until we reach

twenty nine rounds and I have my round

counter here this makes it easier for me

or if you're a beginner just write it

down and now all we have to do is repeat

the three rounds so two rounds of knit

stitches

and then knit one purl one

knit one purl one all the way around

until you reach your 29 round and I will

see you back and show you how my head

looks like I repeated the rows over and

over and this is how my head looks like

here you can see the beautiful stitches

and I will measure it out for you just

let you know how high my head is we have

a total of eight inches of course if you

want to have it longer just keep

repeating those three rows if you want

it as a long beanie and I will finish

off now because this is the height I

need for my head and I will show you how

to do that to cast off what I'm going to

do first is leave a little bit of a

longer tail of my yarn then cut the yarn

and we can grab our yarn needle I will

be using the yarn needle to cast off

stitches in a super simple way so just

like this and now I will show you how to

cast off the stitches

we will be using the stitches on the

Left needle so you can pull the right

needle a little bit out so the stitches

don't come off and now just push the

stitches to the front grab your your

needle insert it in the stitch and take

off so just like this I'm always doing

three stitches at the same time of

course make sure you're not going to

drop any stitches just take your time

you can do one stitch and pull through

this is totally up to you so just take

your stitches off and pull the yarn

through and repeat this all the way

around until you only have one stitch

left and I will show you how to finish

off I'm here and I have only four more

stitches left so just like we did with

the other stitches take them all off

here is my last one now we can take the

knitting needles and move them and all

we have to do now is just pull the yarn

so just pull it and you will see we will

have a tiny hole left but don't worry we

will be sewing it closed so you can see

we have a tiny hole here and now I will

show you how to sew it in so just take

your needle and go through I always like

to do it two three times from different

directions so I will go from the other

side pull through

and you can see the hole is getting

smaller and smaller so I think one or

two more stitches so just go through

pull tight and now the hole is gone and

what I'm going to do now is just grab my

your needle or just do one more extra

stitch if you would like to I was like

to make sure it's not going to open up

on me so just like this and now I will

insert the needle through the top in to

the inside so just pull it through like

this and we can sew in our ends so just

turn your head around and just sew in

your ends what I always like to do is to

make a couple of knots which is also

super super easy a soldier's insert the

needle make a loop so here is our loop

just go through and pull tight what I'm

going to do is make one more knot just

to make sure it's not going to open up

on me

but like I said this is totally up to

you how you want to finish off if you

don't like to make knots on your hands

this is totally fine so here's my second

one and now I'm going to sew in my end

and I have one more end left on the very

beginning by our brim I will just sew in

both ends and then our hat is done so

just so in your end once you are done

doing this we can cut the yarn so just

pull through

and cut the yarn and now I'm going to

sew in the very first strength of your

and I have here

once you're done sewing in all your ends

we are done I attached a fox for pom-pom

on top of course you can make one with

the same yarn I really hope you enjoyed

this tutorial and I hope to see you back

soon
