Skill Level:

small skill level requirement Beginner

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • stranded knitting with at most two colors in one round

Pattern Description:

Inspired by the x games in Munich (Skateboard, BMX, Mountainbike, Moto Cross) this beanie came into existence.
It has a two-color (corrugated ribbing) that reminds of skid marks or bicycle tires. Then comes the lettering BMX! which is followed by a big jumping BMX rider.
The top has again the lettering and the bycicle tire pattern on it.
You can also knit it in neon or other striking colors.
So it will look even cooler :)
Note: there are at most two colors in one round, so it(tm)s easier to knit than you may think!
It comes in two sizes.
It is completely knitted from 4-ply sock yarn leftovers. But you can also use Acrylic or Merino yarn of similar weight (4- 5 ply).

Have fun with BMX! :)

Please note: For Mountain bikers there is also a mountain bike beanie pattern available.
And for everyone who loves the Tour de France (which is starting today at noon!!) there is a cycle race beanie pattern, too.
And for motorbikers there is also a biker beanie pattern.
