Eagle Pine Hat

The Eagle Pine Hat is a classic beanie with a laid-back vibe. Knit with worsted weight yarn, you’ll have it off your needles and warming up your head before you know it.

The pattern comes in sizes suitable for a woman, man or child. Make it in a trio of brights on a neutral background, or keep it basic with two contrasting colors.

The slip-stitch pattern is easy. You’ll never knit with more than one color at a time. This hat is knit in the round, with your choice of double pointed needles or circulars. The stitch pattern is both charted and written.

This pattern is available for $3.99 as a pdf download via Ravelry.*

You may also purchase a copy through Knit Picks.
