This easy knit hat pattern is so mindless, anyone could knit it!

The best thing about color-changing yarn is that it can make a piece look so much more interesting and intricate than it actually was to knit. The Wear It Well Knit Beanie is accomplished entirely in the rib stitch, but it looks like a much more complicated pattern. The lovely autumnal colors are a great way to ring in the cold weather, but this versatile knit hat pattern works well with just about any combination of hues. Try knitting a few in a bunch of different colorways from the Red Heart Boutique Magical line for a variety of choices when the snow starts falling!
