Top 20 Free Beanie Knitting Patterns

I love knitting beanies, they are quick and fun to make, they make great personal gifts for friends and family, you can create many in different colors and styles to suit your mood and they keep you warm in winter. In winter I am always wearing one of my creations and people always give me compliments, I love the feeling of creating functional items and I find knitting beanies very satisfying. You too can keep warm in winter while wearing an individual/unique beanie hand crafted by you!

The top 20 free beanie knitting patterns in the selection below are for the ladies ( will compile some great ones for men, kids and babies in a future post). They vary in skill so there will be some for beginners, intermediate and advanced knitters with techniques such as lace knitting, cables, ribbing, stockinette and garter thrown in the mix!
