Regular Guy Beanie – Free Beanie Knitting Pattern

** Thanks for stopping by! Make sure to check out a revolutionary collaborative story series DisPLACEd – displacedstory.wordpress.com **


Making the Regular Guy Beanie by Chuck Wright as found on Ravelry.

This year I am trying to knit as much as possible, and collect bulk general items for cheap, so I can create Christmas present packages for the local homeless community.

The Regular Guy Beanie was my first creation.

It’s a free pattern, and very easy to make, so check it out here and through the link above, and see what else Chuck has designed.

I don’t like DPNs (double-pointed needles), and I didn’t want to knit in the round, so I amended this patten for two straight needles.

Surroundings Beret – Free Beanie Knitting Pattern

It may not be Winter and beanie-weather here, but I found a pattern I wanted to share with you.

Lincraft is a one-stop-shop for all things art, craft, and homewares. They have a store quite close to my house, and I haven’t been able to stop myself from going in there all the time, almost opening my own store at my house!

On display for everyone needing a new project, I found a free knitting pattern.
