The “Bot” Beanie – Free Knit Pattern

The “Bot” Beanie – Free Knit Pattern

Gotta love a easy one skein project!

I designed this beanie with Universal Uptown Worsted yarn in mind, it’s a super soft worsted weight that is very easy to work with. You will hold two stands of yarn together throughout the project. Alternatively you can use a bulky weight yarn as well.


  • US 10 (6.0 mm) 16″ circular needles
  • yarn needle
  • stitch marker
  • 1 x Universal Uptown Worsted (100% acrylic, worsted, 180 yards per skein)
    • approx. 170 yards for this project
    • note: you will hold 2 strands together throughout


  • st(s) = stitch(es)
  • k = knit
  • p = purl
  • k2tog = knit 2 together
  • p2tog = purl 2 together


  • pattern in US terms
  • finished size: 8.5″ wide x 9″ tall



To Start: Holding 2 strands of yarn together, cast on 60 sts using the long tail cast on method

Round 1 – 10: k1, p1, repeat around (place a stitch marker at the beginning of each round to keep track)


Round 11 – 12: *p1, k1. *repeat around.

Round 13 – 14: *k1, p1. *repeat around.

Round 15 – 42: repeat rounds 11 – 14.
