Sew along : Beanie (Overlocker not needed)


The Beanie Sewing Pattern is the first accessory pattern here at Print-a-Pattern.

I don't know about y'all but I am totally addicted to having a Beanie on my head over the wintertime here in London!

One might think that creating a Beanie from scratch is in some ways complicated but rest assured it is very much not! Read further to see the "Sew Along" step by step instructions on how to make this wonderfully cozy winter garment either using your regular sewing machine (or a serger)


So let´s get started!



SEWING YOUR OWN BEANIE USING A SEWING MACHINE. 

Start by assembling the pattern pages for the Beanie then head to step 1.


Step 1: Cut out the Beanie Sewing Pattern in Jersey Fabric of your own choice.








Step 2: Before Sewing the Beanie it is helpful to add two pairs of notches as marked on the pattern.


First pair of notches: Is at the Center-Front of the Beanie as seen below. These need to be marked at each end of the Beanie.

Second pair of notches: Are at the folding line on the long seam of the beanie as seen below.





Step 3: Fold the piece with the right side facing inwards and stitch the long seam as seen below. This seam won´t be visible once the Beanie is finished.



My preferred seam setting for stretchy fabrics is the sewing stitch that goes 2 forward and one back (pictured below). This allows for a little bit of give for elasticated or jersey fabrics and makes the seam less likely to burst.  (If you know the technical name of this stitch please comment below :)


As this seam will be covered once the Beanie is finished I´d recommend finishing off the long seam with a wide zic-zac to reduce the likeliness of the fabric fraying excessively. 






Step 4: Fold the Beanie onto itself with the right side facing out as seen below.



Step 5: Pin together the outer and inner layer of the Beanie at the curved seam - a total of 4 layers of fabric.




Step 6: Stitch the curved seam using the same method as chosen for step 3 above. This seam will be exposed at the inside of the Beanie so I´d recommend covering the seam with bias tape for aesthetics and to reduce fraying.



Step 7: Push the seam inside so you have the right side facing out.  


Optional Step 8: Fold the edge of the Beanie upwards onto itself. You can secure the desired fold staying in place by stitching into the seamline at the back of the Beanie.


VOILA!
