Basic Skills Necessary:

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

Pattern Description:

This is another pattern request I got.
A cement mixer truck beanie.
The title is long and complicated the beanie is NOT! ;-)

It has a two-color black and orange ribbing (also representing signal/danger stripes on construction sites), followed by the main color, the text cement mixer and 10 cement mixer trucks.
Above the trucks is a black and yellow danger/road block border pattern.

The top is plain orange with a simple decrease.

It is completely knitted from 4-ply sock yarn.
But you can also use similar Acrylic or Merino yarn.

For bigger sizes go up one needle size and/or use 5-ply yarn or both.

When I drafted this pattern I had not imagined that it would look this cute! ;-))

Enjoy and happy knitting!
