The Sailor beanie is knitted with two strands of yarn and the brim is folded twice for triple thickness around the ears bringing you extra warmth and coziness during the winter months. Combining a strand of silk-mohair knitted together with a DK weight merino yarn makes the hat really soft and gives it a beautiful halo.

You can knit the beanie using the hat also without mohair using just a single strand of worsted weight yarn. If you wish to make the worsted weight version, omit all instructions where it says “hold both yarns together” and work with a single strand instead.

You can easily adjust the length of the hat to get the fit you want. The hat is knitted from top down, so you can try it on as you knit it to make sure the length is just perfect for your head. After the crown shaping the rest of the hat is just simple 2x2 ribbing.

The Sailor beanie is designed for everyday use, and it knits up surprisingly fast. This is the perfect project to use the precious hand dyed skeins from your stash, as the simple texture really highlights the colors and texture of the yarn! You can either go for a muted look by choosing matching solid colorways for both yarns, get a marled look by choosing different colors for the fingering weight yarn and the mohair, or go for extra speckles by picking both yarns in speckled colorways (either the same colorway or both different).

To fit head circumference: 53-58.5 cm / 21-23 inches
Length with brim unfolded: 44 cm / 17.5 inches (adjustable)
Length with brim folded twice (triple thickness): approximately 22 cm / 8.75 inches

Note: The pattern uses a strand of DK weight yarn held together with a strand of lace weight mohair yarn, but they can be substituted for a single strand of worsted weight yarn. If you wish to work a worsted weight version, omit all the instructions where it says “hold the yarns together” and follow only the yarn amount requirements for the DK weight yarn.
