Chunky 2×2 Hat Free Knitting Pattern

by | Sep 24, 2020 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

Chunky knitting is so addictive! I created these size 17 circular needles just for making chunky knit hats, and this was the first pattern that I knit with them! I was having trouble finding really chunky circular needles, and not wanting to do the magic loop method (it just does NOT work for me!) I decided to design some super chunky needles that are shorter, and perfect for making chunky beanies! Grab your own pair in my shop here!

Don’t forget to pin this pattern!

To make this pattern, you’ll just need to know how to knit in the round, purl, and decrease stitches (knit 2 together). Here’s the instructions to make your own super bulky beanie!

Materials:

Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick (2 colors) (or any super bulky yarn)

US Size 13 16inch circular needles (9mm)

US Size 17 16inch circular needles (12mm) (Available at MargoKnits.com!)

US Size 13 Double pointed needles

Stitch marker

Pom Pom

Yarn needle
