KNIT TWO-TONE SLOUCHY BEANIE

Beanies are definitely my favorite accessory! Since spring is slowly approaching (we've still got lots of grey and rainy days over here) I thought I'd kick off this new season with a fun and easy two-tone spring colored beanie!

If you're new to knitting this would be an ideal project to perfect your skills! If you're not familiar with knitting in the round you could easily make the beanie using straight needles (you will work the beanie in Stockinette Stitch).
Materials:
-Worsted weight yarn in two shades ( I chose bright pink and purple)
-6 mm ( US 10) circular knitting needle
-set of 6 mm (US 10) DPNS needles
-pom pom maker (you could also use your fingers or cardboard)
-tapestry needle

Abbreviations:
CO = Cast On
K = Knit
P = Purl
K2tog = Knit 2 Together (decrease 1 stitch)

Pattern:
CO 54 sts with color 1 onto the circular needles and close to work in the round being careful not to twist the sts.
Work Ribbing
Round 1: *K1 P1, repeat from * to end of round
Repeat Round 1 6 more times.

Body:
Knit every round until piece measures 7 inches (19 cm) from CO edge.
Crown:
Round 1: *K7, k2tog, repeat from * to end of round. (48 sts)
Round 2: Knit.
Round 3: *K6, k2tog, repeat from * to end of round. (42 sts)
Round 4: Knit.
Round 5: *K5, k2tog, repeat from * to end of round. (36 sts)
Round 6: Knit.
Round 7: *K4, k2tog, repeat from * to end of round. (30 sts)
Round 8: *K3, k2tog, repeat from * to end of round. (24 sts)
Transfer all stitches from knitting needle over to tapestry needle. Once on tapestry needle, pull yarn tight to close hole in the top of hat and secure crown by weaving it into the inside of the hat.
Attach pom pom to top of hat and you're done!

Note: You could easily make this beanie in smaller or larger sizes. Just remove or add more stitches when casting on!
If you decide to make your own beanie I'd definitely love to see; you can either share a picture on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram!
Enjoy the rest of your day!
