Crossed-Over Ribbing Beanie Hat Knitting Pattern and Instructions

This is one of the new favorite patterns in our YouTube channel and we think it is part of the new classics now.

This simple yet elegant beanie hat is knitted with the Crossed-Over Rib (ribbing) knitting pattern we also feature as a stand-alone video tutorial on our channel here.

With a section of ribbing and a simple pattern of sliding stitches and knitting front and back of them, you can complete this project on a weekend or maybe even sooner. Depending on your knitting abilities.
