Have you seen this technique for a knit hat brim? These colour-block beanies are very popular right now and this seamless brim is such a great technique for creating a simple hat edge without using ribbing (but you can) or ending up with a rolled edge. So all you need to do is knit (no purling)! It also gives you the opportunity to learn a new technique: provisional cast on, though I’ll include a link to a video that doesn’t require a provisional cast on as well as the provisional cast on. It’s worth learning because the provisional cast on results in a seamless and stretchier brim. Check out these patterns for double brim knit hats that are so popular now and learn a new technique while you’re at it!

First, there’s this super simple pattern in just one
For a two
Or try this option from DeBross NYC, which promises to be a little more slouchy. The slouchy beanies are still super popular this year. The Savante Two Tone beanie looks great topped with a faux fur pom pom!
By adding just one more
Or you can add a bit of a pattern with this Fisherman Toque by Lamb and Co Designs. I love the super bulky yarn used for this beanie; it makes for a super quick project!
If you’re looking for a more involved pattern and love
Take some time this winter to learn this new technique of the double brimmed hat. This video is a great tutorial if you already have a good idea of how to make a provisional cast on and you’re working in stockinette. This video has instructions for a provisional cast on, but it is worked in rib stitch, so it’s a little different, but not difficult to adapt to stockinette. And this video includes a whole pattern for free and does not require a provisional cast on. She does show you that you will get a seam, which I do not prefer, so I would use one of the other options for a cast on.
Let me know if you make one of these! Or pin it for later and to share with the world!
