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!
20sts/24rows = 4"(10cm) on size 7 needles in Houndstooth slip stitch pattern
130 yards of Worsted weight
I am one of 2 sisters who share a love of knitting, dark chocolate and fine wine, not necessarily in that order, and often all at the same time! My knitwear name is Bellsistersusan (formerly Bellsisterdong) - born out of a hilarious mishap at Stitches West one year. You can read all about it on Ravelry.com under the profile of Bellsistersusan.
