A Free Fold Up Brim, Knitting Machine Beanie Recipe

Knitting Machine Santa Beanie Pattern
I have slowly been adding Knitting Machine Recipes again to my Knitting Machine Fun Page and I just added a new beanie perfect for the up coming holiday season.

When I add Knitting Machine Recipes to my site I add them onto my Knitting Machine Fun Page, these recipes are really just notes on the yarn used, row counts, tension and a few extra tips, they are not a full recipe as I feel that once you have mastered the art of making a Knitting Machine Beanie you just really need the 3 main aspects Yarn, Row Counts and Tension in order to make others.

I do have another post with how I close up my beanies, I use the same method for most of my slouch and fitted beanies and you can view the video on YouTube.

Materials Needed

For this recipe I used some of my favorite yarns for my knitting machines. Both are from Lion Brand Yarn, Wool-Ease and Heartland.

Heartland in Redwood

Wool-Ease in Fisherman

Knitting Machine – I use a Sentro 48 Pin and an Addi Kingsize 46 Pin for my adult size hats and a Jamit 40 Pin Machine for my baby size hats.

Yarn Needle

Finishing Touches

Let's get started

Gauge: 1″ x 1″ = 6 rows x 4 stitches

Sizes: Measured from the top of the hat to the bottom of the brim when folded up.

Youth/Adult  = 10″

Toddler/Child 12 -36 Months = 9″

Infant 6-12+ Months = 8″

Infant 3-6+ Months = 6″


1 Skein each – Heartland & Wool-Ease

46/48 and 40 pin Knitting Machine (Depending on the size you are making)

Darning Needle

OK, Now let's really get started

Cast on as you normally would and crank out the following rows

Youth /Adult: 46/48 pin, 140 rows – 10″

Wool-Ease- Lining 72 Rows

Heartland – Main Color 68 Rows

Tension: Moderate, Middle Hole on Sentro and Using a Savlabot Tension Fork™ on Addi

Toddler/Child: 46 pin, 135 rows – 9″

Wool-Ease- Lining 70 Rows

Heartland – Main Color 65 Rows

Tension: Tight, First Hole using a Savlabot Tension Fork™ on Addi, I would assume first hole on a Sentro 48 too, I didn’t try it yet on that machine.

Infant/Baby 6-12 months+:  40 pin, 120 rows – 8″

Wool-Ease – Lining 62 Rows

Heartland – Main Color 58 Rows

Tension: Tight, First hole only

Thank you for making it this far

I hope you find this recipe easy to follow!

If you have the time I would appreciate it if you would visit my Etsy Shop, sales on patterns and other items in my shop such as the Santa Baby Patches help me out a lot so that I can keep adding recipes like these on my blog. I choose to not have pop up ads, I love not having ads all over my site, I don’t want to add ads other than a few affiliate links here and there to my posts as I think ads really ruin the viewing experience. I am hoping if I can continue to make sales in my Etsy Shop to help me with my finances I can continue to add freebies to my site.

      The worsted weight (size 4) Wool-Ease works great on the knitting machines. NOT the Wool-Ease Thick and Quick, that is too heavy of a yarn. But Lion Brand has 2 sizes of Wool-Ease yarn.
