Basic Skills Necessary:

  • do stranded knitting with at most two colors in one round
  • knit and purl
  • weave in yarn tails and strands during knitting

Pattern Description:

Longing for spring and as I had always loved to make another cute bee beanie this cute hat came into existence.

Call it beenie = bee + beanie for the fun of it :)

It has a two colored ribbing. There are two versions. You can also start with a dark green, grass green ribbing instead of the beenish yellow and black ribbing version.

Then follows the meadow with the daisies above fly the bees. Both bands are on the beanie twice.
And at the top is a lovely little daisy flower.

It is completely knitted with 4-ply sock yarn leftovers.
But can also be knitted in similar weight Acrylic or similar yarn.

It comes in two sizes (kids (S) and adult (M)).

So welcome spring and put a smile on everybody(tm)s face with this cute beenie!
