Please note: This listing is for a KNITTING PATTERN. This is not finished product. It is an instant downloadable PDF file written in English with American knitting terminology.

The Banded Braids Beanie LITE was created as an alternative to the super bulky Banded Braids Beanie pattern I designed. The braided brim makes this hat warm and cozy! The braids look more intimidating than they really are. There’s also a headband version included.

Skill Level: Advanced Beginner / Intermediate

Method: Knit in the round, from the bottom up.

-Stitch marker.
-Light bulky or heavy worsted yarn/Aran (a light weight 5 or heavy worsted weight 4): I used Malabrigo Yarn in Mecha, but any comparable substitute works, provided you meet gauge.

Size: Adult/Teen. Easily adjustable.

To knit matching accessories check out my other Banded Braids patterns including: Banded Braids Beanie (in super bulky) the Banded Braids Cowl, Mini Braids Cowl, Banded Braids Headband, and Banded Braids Mittens!
