Hi all! I was wondering if some of you can help me on this...I'm looking for a basic looking stockinette beanie pattern using 5.5mm knitting needles. Does anyone know a good pattern for it? i'm looking to make a beanie that will fit a 22" cir. head.
Well if i couldn't find a pattern and I was to do it myself, does anyone know if i was to use 5.5mm knitting needles, how many stitches do i need to cast on for it? Any help will be great! Thank you!  Smiley

do a search for "kitten avec whip" & then scroll down to her "joao watch cap" pattern (its a pdf) - it uses size 7 needles, but i've made it using sz 10s also & its worked out just fine. i cast on 90 sts & do a k5, p5 rib for 5 inches (so that it can be folded over) & stockinette st until its as long as i want. then i use her decrease pattern - seems to work out pretty well

you can also do a search for "seaman's cap" & i know there's a good pattern (i think) called the "london beanie" - all excellent basic beanie caps that any search engine should turn up

good luck!

It isn't the needles that determines the number of stitches you cast on it's the gauge. Gauge is the number of stitches per inch - it is determined by the combination of yarn and needles and you won't know it until you knit up a sample of your yarn.

So before you know how many stitches to cast on, you have to pick a yarn. Aran or chunky yarns knit up nicely on needles of that size. Or you could knit with two strands of a thinner yarn (double-knitting weight or knitting-worsted weight).

Once you've picked your yarn, knit up a sample, measure the gauge and use that as a guide.
