Santa Baby Beanie Tutorial
A Free Fold Up Brim, Knitting Machine Beanie Recipe
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.Knitting Machine Recipes
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.
How to close a machine Knit Beanie
For this recipe I used some of my favorite yarns for my knitting machines. Both are from Lion Brand Yarn, Wool-Ease and Heartland.
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.
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)
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 65 Rows
Heartland – Main Color 70 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
Infant/Baby 0-6 months+: 40 pin, 100 rows – Approximately 7″
Wool-Ease- Lining 52 Rows
Heartland – Main Color 48 Rows
Tension: Tightest, First and Second Hole

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.
