Knit Animal Print Beanie Hat

Ok, my knit beanie obsession continues! I just can't stop. Two patterns in three days! Wow I'm on a roll. So, the other day I was in my local Aldi and discovered a bunch of super chunky yarn in an array of color so naturally I couldn't resist. To be honest I think I bought the lot! The second I came home I wanted to knit and design another beanie hat and so I got thinking. ANIMAL PRINT! Why not create a super chunky beanie with super cool animal print, and here it is.


Here's what you need:

Super Bulky yarn
7 mm circular needle (16") or double pointed needles.
Tapestry needle
Stitch marker.



Start of with your contrasting color (CC). In this case I've used dark blue.
Cast on 50 stitches.
Begin with knit 1, purl 1 ribbing. Continue in this pattern until you have 9 rows completed.

From now on we will be working the main part of the hat (the animal print. You can work off the chart below or simply read the instructions. If reading off the chart remember to begin at the very bottom right hand corner and making your way across towards the left. Every round begins on the right.



Round 1: Attach your main color (MC) which in this case is light grey.
(K1MC, K2CC, K4MC, K1CC, K1MC, K1CC) 5 times to end of round.

Round 2: (K4MC, K2CC, K2MC, K2CC) 5 times to end of round.

Round 3: (K1MC, K2CC, K1MC, K1CC, K5MC) 5 times to end of round.

Round 4: (K1MC, K1CC, K1MC, K1CC, K2MC, K3CC, K1MC) 5 times to end of round.

Round 5: (K2MC, K2CC, K2MC, K1CC, K1MC, K1CC, K1MC) 5 times to end of round.

Round 6: (K6MC, K2CC, K2MC) 5 times to end of the round.

Round 7: (K2CC, K1MC, K2CC, K4MC, K1CC) 5 times to end of round.

Round 8: (K1MC, K1CC, K1MC, K1CC, K1MC, K1CC, K3MC, K1CC) 5 times to end of round.

Round 9: (K2CC, K3MC, K1CC, K1MC, K1CC, K2MC) 5 times to end of the round.

Round 10: (K4MC, K1CC, K2MC, K2CC, K1MC) 5 times to end of the round.

Round 11: (K1MC, K2CC, K7MC) 5 times to end of the round.

Round 12: (K1CC, K1MC, K1CC, K2MC, K1CC, K1MC, K2CC, K1MC) 5 times to end of round.

Continue now with your main color.

For the next 3 rounds you will be decreasing for the crown. K2tog to the end of the round (x3).

Cut your yarn leaving a long tail. Thread it onto a yarn needle and weave through your remaining stitches. Secure the yarn with a stitch or two in the inside of the hat.
Now all you have to do is add a pom pom and you are ready to go.
