chunky knit beanie

Guess what one big ball of Cascade Magnum will get you?
Two chunky knit beanies!  A hat that looks a little like Kirsten's Thorpe hat, minus the ear flaps, Erin's Rose Hill, minus the bobbles, Sarah's garter brim hat, only chunkier, and one that Keana made, the Banana Republic hat, minus the flap and button. A really quick knit to make you feel like you accomplished something.  I know a lot of you could wing this pattern, but I wrote it down to make it easy.
Yarn: Cascade Magnum.  Sarah, at Knot another Hat sells this, and her shipping time is amazing!
Needles: size US 15
The pattern will be over in the side bar, too.  
So, go ahead.  Get yourself some chunky yarn, and get knitting.  Your head will be so happy.
Have a fabulous Wednesday.

There is nothing quite as satisfying as a quick and bulky hat! So cute!

I love the snowball blocking the faces shot.

Great hats! You just have to love chunky yarn!

So funny because I made the exact same hat using Cascade 109 LE Bulky, a slightly less chunky yarn. I have to blog it right away!

Snow Angels! A mother and daughter who so apparently enjoy each other and share in creative endeavors. And a bond that will grant your little girl all her wishes and dreams come true. Brings light and hope to this world in the real!

And I've discovered more photos in your side bar for those days I may miss a post or two. The one of you two also side by side in your beanies and cameras is total fun! Rock out in your fab knits!

Well, this was my first hat project, and although it's so easy I can't imagine what I screwed up, mine doesn't look like the picture. Near the top, it's so loose and loopy, that I won't be giving it to my brother as I planned. Bummer.
