Free Beanie Pattern!

Hey pals.

I missed you. How's your heart doing? I know, thats a really big question. But how I wish we could sit down and just talk-without fear of being judged or ridiculed for sharing a thought. I know that can't happen right now but I hope you know that this is a place where conversation can happen and it is welcome-your heart is welcome.

So, as you've seen in the title, I wanted to give you all a free pattern full of HEARTS in honor of everything going on in our world-because when hearts unite THAT is where the magic happens! So say hello to the...




What you will need:

  • Size US 11/8mm 16" circular knitting needles
  • 5 different colors of super bulky yarn. I used Lion Brand Thick and Quick.
  • Scissors
  • Yarn needle
  • Stitch marker
  • Faux pom (optional)


  • K - knit
  • P - purl
  • K2tog - knit two stitches together
  • Sts - stitches
  • C1 - color 1
  • C2 - color 2
  • C3 - color 3
  • C4 - color 4
  • C5 - color 5


Cast on 41 sts.

Connect in the round equally 40 sts.


Rows 1-8: *K1, P1*. Repeat *,* around with C1 to end.


Row 9-10: K around with C2.

Row 11: *K1 C1, K1 C2*. Repeat *,* around to end.

Row 12-13: K around with C2.

Repeat Rows 9-12 THREE MORE TIMES

Sections will be as follows:

  • C3 with C2 accent hearts.
  • C4 with C3 accent hearts.
  • C5 with C4 accent hearts.

You will have a total of 28 rows when you are finished.


Row 29: *K2, K2tog*. Repeat *,* around. (30 sts)

Row 30: *K1, K2tog*. Repeat *,* around. (20 sts)

Row 31: *K2tog*. Repeat *,* around. (10 sts)

Cut yarn leaving an 8 inch tail. Weave through the remaining stitches. Pull tight to cinch the beanie closed. Tie and weave in the ends and TA DA!!! You're done! Now let's go make another one, friend.


I can't wait to see what colors you choose and what style your beanie has when it's done! Please tag me, @alythreads, on Instagram with #confettiheartsbeanie!

    • Hallöööchen, Ich würde diese Mütze gerne für meine Enkelkinder, 2 Jahre alt, stricken. Welche Maschenzahl benötige ich dann? Und wie von der Höhe?

      Liebe Grüße
