Basic Skills Necessary:

  • do stranded knitting with two colors in one round

Pattern Description:

The cheetah can make up to 115 km per hour and is such an elegant and lovely animal that I had to put it on a beanie.
The beanie has a band of running cheetahs in full speed with cheetah dots all around. You can make a normal beanie or a more slouchy one by adding another pattern repeat at the top.
My images show the more slouchy version.
You can also add another pattern repeat in width to make it even more slouchy.

Notes for bigger sizes are included.

Enjoy and happy knitting!
