Busy Beenie Pattern

This pattern is written four different ways for four different weights of yarn (DK, worsted, bulky, and super bulky). All the hats have the same dimensions at the end, they will just require more repeats of the pattern and more cast on stitches the lighter the weight of yarn.

With US 4(5, 8, 11) needles:
30(27, 17, 9) stitches and 27(24, 19, 13) rows make a 4” square in 1x1 rib (brim pattern)
