Special Winter VideoKAL: trendy slouch beanie knitted with Merino Grosso, Maxi Merino, Peru or Norway


Welcome in the winter season with a warm trendy slouch beanie. You only need 3 balls of your favourite colour in Katia Merino Grosso or, if you prefer, 2 balls of Maxi Merino, Peru or Norway. You’ll see that there’s a wide range of options and colours for making this simple knit pattern from our Katia Beginners 4 magazine. Download the free pattern and follow the instructions with the step by step guide on our DIY video.

This knitted unisex hat is made using straight knitting needles in stitches as easy as 2×2 ribbing, stockinette stitch, reverse stockinette stitch and striped stockinette stitch without changing colour. You’ll learn how to transform a flat piece of fabric into a woollen hat that is both modern and trendy.
