Skill Level:

small skill level requirement Beginner

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • do stranded knitting with two colors in one round

Pattern Description:

Little busses and little cars from the front view are all around this two - color beanie.
It starts with a two-color (= corrugated) ribbing which is followed by stripes of little busses and cars.

The charts are easy to remember. The floats are pretty short on the back.
At the top are 8 tiny cars from the side view.

As the beanie uses only two colors the pattern is also suitable for fair isle/stranded knitting beginners.

For girls you might change the blue to violett or pink instead blue.
It(tm)s knitted completely in 4-ply sock yarn leftovers (about 35 g of each color will do). But you can also use Acrylic yarn or Merino of similar weight or a bit bulkier.
For bigger heads go up one needle size and/or use 5-ply yarn or both.

Enjoy and happy knitting!
