Welcome to the Side Step Knitted Beanie pattern. I love knitting beanies and knitting beanies with texture makes my love for knitting deepen. I purchased this beautiful hand-dyed yarn from Fatima at Aquarius Make and I wanted to make a beanie that would show the tonal shades of pink. I love how it came out and my testers used a variety of colors that came out equally as pretty. The Side Step Knitted Beanie works up very quickly and delivers a beautiful texture.

If you’re new to knitting, working in the round is easier than you think. You cast on your stitches and join your circles by placing a stitch marker and working in the round. There are so many videos to help learn this skill and with a little practice, you’ll have it down in no time. 

I hope you love this fun and quick pattern! Please share with me on social media. You can follow me on Instagram HERE and on Facebook HERE! Tag me @pinkplumeriamaui and use #pinkplumeriamaui.
