This is ever so lame compared to what all you amazing knitters manage to make on here but I thought I would post it in case there are some really super duper amateur knitters out there like me that can only knit a square/rectangle and feel like giving something apart from a scarf a go. haha.
So pretty much you just knit a big rectangle the size of a beanie doubled over and also enough for the little bits that fold up around the edge if you want that look. Then you just sew it together with a big "wool pin"?? or whatever they are called. Then tie knots over the corners so that you get the little ears and the "round" shape of the beanie. Then if you like sew through the little bits of wool to make the "tassle" like things and sew a little pattern on the front if you like.
I made one kind of like this for myself ages ago. No idea where it went though haha.
