I’ve been getting a ton of requests for a pattern using the waistcoat stitch, so The Snow Cone Beanie is born! If you follow me on Instagram you know that i’ve been creating a lot of designs using this stitch and its one of my favs! I’m working on getting a youtube channel set up so I can have videos for all of you to go with my patterns…but for now, I’ll be linking you to videos created by others that I find helpful!
The yarn I used for this pattern is super chunky! Be sure you are using a yarn weight of at least 6. I recommend Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick if you don’t have any WAK on hand.
Be sure to follow me on Instagram and tag me in your makes! I love seeing your finished work. 🙂

Your brim should be approximately 17″ long un-stretched. Add more or less rows here to reach the correct length before moving on to the next step.
Fold your work in half. Sl St the first and last rows together to form the brim. Be sure your “V’s” are pointing the correct way to get the knit look. Like this-
You will now begin to work in the round along the top of the brim, following the chart below. Round 1 is the only round that you will be using normal Sc. Rounds 2-9 are all worked using the Csc stitch. You will join with a Sl St and Ch 1 after every round.
Round 1: Following chart- Ch 1, work 40 Sc evenly around the top of the brim. Join with a Sl St to first Sc. (40 Sc)

Tie off, leaving a tail long enough to sew top of hat shut. Using your yarn needle, weave the tail of yarn in and out every couple of stitches from Round 15. Pull tight to close. Secure with a couple of knots. Sew pompom to the top of the hat. Weave in all ends.
