(6) Name: 'Knitting : Bernie

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit, purl, sl1wyb(slip one stitch with yarn in back), BO, CO

Pattern Description:

If you can knit with one color per row, then you can make Bernie! An easy to knit beanie, knit from the bottom up/ in the round, and using only about 110yds/55g yarn in total, Bernie sports a 'Houndstooth' slip-stitch pattern using only one color at at time! No stranding skills necessary!

Would be a great man-hat too either with the crown as is or just with plain decreases for a less 'ornate' finish.

This pattern is named in honor my dear Mum's school-years nickname, and the 'Houndstooth' is reminiscent of the patterning popular in her day!

PS. makes a stylish chemo- cap!
