Easy Mens Beanie Knitting Pattern

This beanie features a wide ribbed brim and a shaped crown. The ribbing is created by using knit and purl stitches to make a ribbed stitch pattern. This hat is knit on circular knitting needles and it’s suited for beginners. This is a simple knit and one of my many easy knit hat patterns.
