The Alexander Beanie - Easy Lion Brand Jeans Yarn Knitting Pattern

Happy Monday!

Today I'm coming at ya with a new pattern, the Alexander Beanie, using Lion Brand Jeans Yarn. If you haven't heard of this yarn, it's a newer yarn made of 100% acrylic and it's so soft. Like, surprisingly soft. I found this yarn at my local Michael's. There are 7 denim-inspired colours available ranging from blues to greys (and one camel-coloured rust-brown shade called "topstitch" that I reeeally love).


For this hat, I used "vintage", which is a super pretty medium grey.

This hat is constructed bottom-up and in the round. First, ribbing is created, and it's then folded in half to create the double brim.

I wanted to create a simple, 1-colour hat with this yarn because it's just so dang pretty. It's got a beautiful heathered look, and I really wanted to give the yarn the spotlight.


You can find the pattern here.

Please tag #AlexanderBeanie if you make this hat so I can see your lovely work!
