Knit Beanie – Knitting 101

This is a beginner knit project and it will include learning to knit in the round, long tail cast on, knit stitch, purl stitch, rib-stitch and cast-off.

It is recommended that you know the basics such as:

  • Cast On / Cast Off
  • Knit and Purl Stitch

Class Includes Best Practices:

  • Basic Tools Overview – Yarn Weight and Matterials
  • Reading a yarn label
  • Understanding a stitch pattern basics
  • Stitch guage swatch
  • Long tail cast on
  • Closing the round and stitch marker usage
  • Knitting and purling
  • Finishing closure


Supply List: Medium Weight Yarn (4), Knitting Needle in Round (5.5mm), Tapestry Needle and use of Class Scissors


  • Medium Weight Yarn (4)
  • Use of  The Makery Knitting Needle in Round (5.5mm) – On the Back on the yarn label look for the needle icon and above squair icon it should say the size. (5.5mm) – You would look for the 5.5mm on the needle package and you want the cord attached and that also comes in a size. I like the 16 inch for beanies due to the simplicity of not fussing with a long cord. Note you can go up a size but not by too much or the stitches will look loose and effect the guage. If you can’t find 5.5 mm, choose 6 mm or 6.5 mm.
    Note: the Needles in Round have a cord attached to the needles and can be found at most craft supply stores such as JoAnn’s Fabrics and Michael’s Craft Stores.
  • Tapestry Needle
  • Scissors
  • Stitch Marker
