Wide ribs create a unique crown for this loose-fitting beanie

The Zinc Beanie is knit with worsted weight yarn. I recommend using a solid, tonal, or gradually fading yarn (vs. hand painted or speckled) to ensure that the subtle textural design remains visible.

Knit and purl, decreasing (knitwise and purlwise), working small circumferences in the round with magic loop (or method of choice). Instructions are written.

Designed by Susan Watkins -- one size (fits head with up to 23" circ. with little to no ease; 19" [48cm] circ. at brim x 8.5-9" [21.5cm] tall); US 7 [4.5mm] circular, 32" [80cm] long for magic loop; 20 sts x 30 rows = 4" [10cm] over hat body pattern

1 skein Zen Yarn Garden Serenity Worsted (3.5oz/100g [approx 175yd/160m]), 75% extrafine merino wool, 15% cashmere, 10% nylon

Shown in Zen Yarn Garden Serenity Worsted - French Vanilla and Silver Blue Shadow

For fun, I also knit this pattern in a super springy, machine washable, wool/acrylic blend in DK weight with US 6 needles. I didn’t make any other alterations to the pattern, and it worked beautifully, resulting in a tighter-fitting beanie, which some people may prefer.

Named after my mom’s favorite breakfast hangout in Laguna Beach, CA.
