Patons Classic Wool Worsted Effortless Beanie

Who knew looking so cute could be so easy? Stylish and practical, Patons Classic Wool Worsted Effortless Beanie is a must-have for just about any woman. The super fast and simple project makes it a perfect knit for beginners.

Use a gauge of 20 sts and 26 rows (4") with larger needles in stocking st to knit a beanie that measures most. Be sure to check your gauge. If it takes you fewer stitches to match the gauge, try using a smaller size needle; if it takes you more stitches, try a larger size needle.
